A Ticket to the Moon
52mins or 80mins German or English version available
My family has a ticket to the moon. My grandfather bought it in 1969 in Prague, at the office of Pan Am (Pan American World Airways). At a time when the U.S. and the Soviet Union were at the height of the Space Race, almost 100.000 space enthusiasts on both sides of the Iron Curtain became members of Pan Am's First Moon Flights Club and were put on their waiting list.
TICKET TO THE MOON meets some of those potential space travelers today and humorously tells their individual moon stories.
