“Rocket Fever” Episode Description and Preview Trailer:
Cold War politics push a nascent space program into overdrive when John F. Kennedy calls for a moon landing. Project Mercury takes the first step, but America continues to lag behind the Soviets. Alan Shepard and John Glenn’s flights build momentum for the project –until Kennedy’s assassination shocks the world.
In the preview trailer below from Twitter, you can watch ‘Ham the Astrochimp‘ launched into space at the age of three. The primate made it back with just ‘a bruised nose’ and ‘a bit of dehydration’. Paving the way for human space travel.
Before they sent humans into space, NASA sent a three-year-old chimp named Ham, to prove that a primate could survive the trip. Meet more pioneers of the Space Race tonight at 8 on the series premiere of Apollo's Moon Shot. https://t.co/JljsCAMWPS pic.twitter.com/ZCNUbuQv8T

Dr. Teasel Muir-Harmony on Ham the Astrochimp’s return back to Earth:
“He was a little dehydrated, he was a little fatigued. But they gave him an apple and he liked that.”
