Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon (3D/2D)
In the history of mankind, only 12 men have stepped on the surface of the moon ... MAGNIFICENT DESOLATION is their story. From 1969, the year of the first lunar exploration by NASA, to 1972, the last time a manned mission was sent to the moon's surface, only 12 men have experienced the feeling of walking on extra-terrestrial ground. In those three short years, man spent almost 300 hours (approximately 12 1/2 days) exploring and documenting the surface of the moon, and has not returned in over 30 years. Buzz Aldrin, of the Apollo 11 NASA mission and the second man to walk on the moon, uttered the now famous descriptor "Magnificent Desolation" to express the sensation of being on the moon as well as the landscape he observed.
