Moon Day has arrived! Everyone has heard of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, but Michael Collins’s role in the moon landings is much less well known.

To mark the #Apollo50th anniversary over the weekend, we have developed a short video celebrating Michael Collins and the part he played in this momentous occasion in human history. Telling the story of his 11 solo laps around the moon – using a combination of narration, acting, and images – we hope you enjoy this creative account of the events that took place.

Take a look at the video here:
