Ever since Men have discovered that the Moon is an individual celestial body they longed to travel there. When I was a boy among my favourite books there was the novel "Journey to the Moon" by Jules Verne, in which some brave men travelled to the Moon in a projectile shot from a huge cannon. After a few decades Man indeed reached the Moon in the spaceship Apollo-11.

A few years later the spaceship Apollo-13 tried to reach it again, but an explosion on the ship meant that the spacemen were unable to descend to the Moon's surface, and had to go round the hind surface of the Moon before they could start homewards. They spent eight minutes in darkness in the Moon's shadow which must have been terrifying.

Now NASA has reconstructed the images and films made fifty years ago, which now have more detail. You can watch the film here:
