The race to the moon is back on. Half a century since the last Apollo mission landed on the moon, Alan Duffy takes us inside the new space race, where innovators and big dreamers are rewriting the rule book on space exploration. He witnesses the launch of a new-generation of rocket at Cape Canaveral in Florida. Created by SpaceX, this rocket is partly reusable, and the innovations behind it may help us get back to the moon. Alan meets the pioneers at US's first licenced spaceport in Mojave in California who are building new types of lunar landers and rockets. And he finds out that the discovery of water on the moon may transform our chances of living there and using the moon to explore planets far from home.
