HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Dec. 12, 2017) - Salmon Library at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) is playing an important role in a documentary film project focusing on the Apollo spaceflight era.
"When We Were Apollo" is scheduled for completion in time for the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 2019. It's a feature-length documentary exploring the enduring impact of the Apollo space program through the eyes of several extraordinary behind-the-scenes men and women who helped put a man on the moon. They'll represent the 400,000 men and women who spent the better part of a decade to get the United States to Earth's planetary neighbor and back.
Salmon Library will be the repository for donated footage and research materials upon completion of the project to ensure they will be preserved and made accessible for present and future generations. The film's producers expect that a considerable amount of interview footage and materials will not be shown in the two-hour documentary, but it will be accessible through the repository. The library will also have a copy of the finished documentary. Click here for full release.
