James May on the Moon

With his unique blend of energy and enquiry, James May takes an exhilarating look at the historic moon missions. James talks to astronauts, learning about their experiences walking on the moon and how their 1960s technology managed to produce the most incredible machines in aviation history. He experiences the thrill of weightlessness in the infamous Vomit Comet, feels the bone-crushing G forces of a Saturn V rocket launch and gets to fly to the edge of space in a U2 spy plane - in his own space suit!
