Space Man


"One Small Step" tells the dramatic story of the history of space flight by combining the music of composer Aaron Copland, with archival NASA photographs and film footage. The journey begins on earth with "Fanfare for the Common Man", when the ancient explorers' thirst for exploration takes them beyond the mountains and the oceans and finally the skies.

Then, Kennedy's challenge to be the first to land on the moon signals the "Appalachian Spring" and the great Space Race. From the development of NASA, to Neil Armstrong's historical moon landing, from tragic disaster to momentous achievement, Copland's magnificent themes propel the story into the present and beyond.
