Season 3 Episode 1 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

Some of America’s best-known astronauts visited Idaho in 1969 to train for their moon missions. The training was part of a deliberate strategy by NASA to teach geology to the Apollo astronauts who were, after all, going on the grandest geology field trip of all time. The space-research relationship continues with NASA and Craters of the Moon National Monument.
