Episode Summary

Blast Off
James discovers that the Space Race started in a rather unusual place - Staveley Road, Chiswick, west London. This was the site of the first attack from a Nazi V2 rocket. The same technology used to power the V2, would later take the Americans to the moon. He drives a Moon Buggy - or a Lunar Rover Vehicle, to use its correct name and visits Cape Canaveral to see the Saturn 5 rockets.moreless
