Sunday 28 July at 9.25pm Channel 070

In Return to the Moon: Seconds to Arrival engineers count down the final moments in the world's first ever privately-funded moon mission which took place this year. In what could be one of the greatest milestones in the history of private space travel, or a spectacular failure, it all comes down to sticking the landing. The documentary tracks the development and journey of the robotic Beresheet spacecraft, built by SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and details how the spacecraft tracked the stars to make its way to the moon and the risky manoeuvre to get into lunar orbit and more.
