Man and the Moon

Episode 1: A Child of the Earth

What would mankind be without the moon? Its existence is the result of a cosmic act of love: It is believed that it was formed around 4.5 billion years ago when a planet collided with the Earth. This is why we all literally carry its DNA within us. The film allows us to take another look back at how we humans discovered the moon.
