Discovery-owned Science Channel will dissect the most popular conspiracy claims surrounding the Apollo 11 moon landing nearly 50 years ago in the upcoming series Truth Behind The Moon Landing.

Produced by MGM-owned Big Fish Entertainment, the six-episode series tests evidence and applies scientific reasoning to conspiracies with the help of former NASA astronaut Leland Melvin, Iraq War veteran and former FBI agent Chad Jenkins, and author Mike Bara.

The program will also test claims about how the Apollo 1 fire started; study one of NASA’s last existing Lunar Lander prototypes that Neil Armstrong trained on; gain access to NASA archives to uncover photos and footage never-before-seen by the general public, and more.

Dan Cesareo, Lucilla D’Agostino, Rick Hankey, Ron Bowman and Pat Twist serve as executive producers. Executive producers for Science Channel Caroline Perez and Neil Laird.

Truth Behind The Moon Landing premieres June 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Science Channel.
