Apollo 16 Astronaut and Moonwalker, CHARLIE DUKE Live on Stage! 
With a special tribute to Captain Gene Cernan, The Last Man on the Moon. 

Hosted by acclaimed Australian Astrophysicist, Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith.


At the heart of the Apollo space program was the team who worked in Mission Control. Some came from a rural lifestyle unchanged since the 19th Century. Others grew up in blue-collar America of mines and smoke stacks.

They ranged from students straight out of college to students, to soldiers hardened by military service. Yet, from such ordinary beginnings, an extraordinary team was born. They set out on what JFK called, 'the most hazardous, dangerous, and greatest adventure upon which mankind has ever embarked."

Through the team's testimony and the supporting voices of Apollo astronauts and modern NASA flight directors, the movie explores their journey from the faltering start of the program to the glories of the Moon landings, and the rescue of Apollo 13.

Exclusive Q&A with Charlie Duke  
Appearing Live on Stage

A NASA astronaut who explored the moon during Apollo 16. Charlie Duke became the tenth and youngest man to step onto the lunar surface, just minutes after his crew mate John Young. 

Best known for his crucial role as CAPCOM - The spacecraft communicator - During the dramatic and dangerous landing of Apollo 11. It was he who passed crucial instructions to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as they encountered computer problems during their descent. And when Apollo 11 ran along its its landing barely reaching the lunar surface before using all of their fuel, it was Duke who deadpanned, "Tranquility, we copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot!"
