NASA said Wednesday it's bringing its official livestream, NASA TV, to Hulu, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon. Subscribers to the video streaming service can also watch TV series such as NASA X, which "follows innovative new technologies and the NASA scientists, researchers and engineers who are putting them to work for us."

NASA TV will be available Friday and will require a Hulu subscription, or a free trial if you're not already a member. Hulu will also be running documentaries as well as NASA 360, which covers ways the space agency's tech has influenced not only  space travel but consumer goods as well. You can also access NASA TV directly through NASA's own site.

On July 20, 1969, NASA put the first humans on the moon with its Apollo 11 mission and Neil Armstrong's "one giant leap." Though no one has been back to the moon since the Apollo 17 mission in December 1972, NASA has said it expects to make its next moon landing in 2024 as a stepping stone for future Mars missions.

Neither NASA nor Hulu responded to a request for comment.
