Special music spot to commemorate 50 years since the launch of Apollo 11

Fifty years ago today Apollo 11 blasted off on a mission to take three men to the moon, two of whom actually landed on earth's satellite.

Contemporary TV clips of Apollo spaceships launching were usually accompanied by the music "Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Strauss because of the association of this piece of music with the moonshot in the film "2001, A Space Odyssey."

So, for the generation who witnessed the moon landings, this music will always be associated with the story of man reaching for the stars.
