This is a great documentary, and as a historian of the space program, I was very interested in the topic. I was also interested in the interviews with the scientists, astronauts, and other people who were involved in the Apollo Program. I was impressed by the personal stories of the people involved in the Apollo Program. One of the great things about this documentary is the fact that it is so well produced. It's very informative and the interviews are fascinating. I think this is a great documentary and I would recommend it to everyone.

This is a good documentary about the Apollo moon missions. The only thing that bothered me was the audio quality. I've had a stereo in my computer for years and it is just not a good experience to have to turn off the volume every time you want to hear something that you didn't hear before. In this case, it was my own thoughts in the room. You can hear your own thoughts, but it makes you feel like you're in the room with the actors. It also seems like they try to focus on the technical aspects of the missions, which is fine. But it's just so annoying to have to turn up the volume every time you want to hear a piece of information you didn't hear before. The only thing I didn't like was the sound mix. It was great to hear the sound of the microphones and the sound of the sound track, but it was very loud in some of the other scenes. I think they could have done a better job with the sound mix. The main thing that bothers me about this documentary is that it feels like they're just trying to give a documentary-like feeling to the film. The sound is super loud, there's no dialogue, and there are a bunch of other elements that make it feel like a documentary. If they were trying to give a documentary-like feeling to it, they should have used the voice over, the audio, and the narration. The audio was just really bad. I would recommend this film for fans of the Apollo missions, but I would not recommend it for anyone else. If you have an audio problem, then you should check the audio in the video. If it's not good, then you should have someone else do the audio.

A documentary on the Apollo missions, this is a fascinating look at the lives of the astronauts and the missions they were on, with a lot of interviews with the astronauts themselves. The most interesting thing about this documentary is that it is not biased. It has interviews with all the astronauts, with the technicians who worked on the missions, with the engineers who worked on the spacecrafts and with the NASA people who worked on the missions. It's almost as if the Apollo missions were made to be fun for the astronauts. I also liked the fact that the documentary never shows the astronauts in a bad light. Some of the interviews are very good and interesting, but they don't really tell us anything new. I really liked the fact that they didn't show the astronauts being upset or angry or anything like that. They talk about how they were happy with the Apollo missions, what they did, what they learned from them, and how they were happy with the results. It's a great documentary, I would recommend it to anyone who likes the Apollo missions or is interested in space or astronaut stories.

A good documentary about the early days of Apollo Spacecraft. The documentary has some interesting information about what went on during the first Apollo missions and the investigation of the Apollo 1 fire. Some of the information is good and some is not. Some of the information is what was rumored in the press and some is what actually happened. Overall, I found this documentary to be informative and a good look at what happened during the first Apollo missions. I found the documentary to be very well done and informative.

One of the most amazing documentaries I have ever seen. The acting, the content and the photography are all first class. It is almost a documentary of the Apollo missions, but instead of the astronauts telling their story, it is all about the crew and the people who helped them. The problems and mistakes that the crew encountered, and the people who were with them at all times. The documentary is so much more than a documentary. It is a deep look into the minds of the astronauts and the people who helped them. This is a story that is completely untold and is one of the greatest mysteries of the human experience. I highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about the Apollo missions and the people who were with them.

This documentary looks at the lives of the Apollo astronauts. It also looks at the most famous Apollo astronauts. There are many interviews with the astronauts and their wives and children. It also looks at the families of the astronauts. There is also a few interviews with the other astronauts. Overall, the documentary is pretty good. It does a good job at showing how much the astronauts and their families suffered and the sacrifices they made to get to the moon. The documentary does a good job at showing how different astronauts were and the sacrifices they made. There is also a good amount of footage from the Apollo missions. Overall, it is a good documentary.

Well, I went to see this movie expecting to be blown away by the "history" of the Apollo program. Unfortunately, I found the movie to be a lot more of a biography of a man than it was a history lesson. I have to say that the movie was actually pretty good, but it could have been much better if it was a little more "deeper" and focused on the men and the program rather than the history of it. I also think that this movie does a pretty good job of showing the impact that the Apollo program had on the people who were involved in it. I do think that the movie could have done a lot more with that topic and some of the more personal details would have been interesting. It was also a bit on the short side, so I think that some people might not have gotten the full story. But, it was still a pretty good movie that was worth seeing.

Although I'm not a fan of the Apollo moon missions, I thought this was a great documentary. The purpose of the documentary was to tell the stories of the people that were part of the Apollo program. I think that it would have been more interesting to tell the stories of those who were involved in the real moon landing, and the real astronauts. I think that it was more interesting to hear their stories than to see their pictures and videos. I think that the documentary would have been more interesting if they had shown the actual astronauts and the people who worked for the space program. I think that the documentary was just as interesting if they had shown pictures of the astronauts and the people who worked for the space program. The people who worked on the moon mission were really cool and I would definitely recommend that you see the documentary if you haven't already.

It's been a few years since I last watched this documentary, but I'm glad to have watched it again. It's been a while since I've seen any of the Apollo missions, so I'm not sure I had a great understanding of what was going on. It's amazing how little is known about the Apollo missions, and how much more is known about the space program in general. It's also amazing how many people have given their opinions on the Apollo missions, and how much of the public is not knowledgeable about what was going on. This documentary is a must see for anyone who is interested in the Apollo missions. I'm glad to see that the general public has gotten the most out of this program. This is a must see documentary.

Michael Collins was the first man to step on the moon and he was the only one to return safely. As a teenager in 1958, Collins grew up in Britain and became fascinated by the phenomenon of the moon landing. He attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where he studied aeronautical engineering and participated in a series of military exercises in the United States. In 1964 he entered the University of Cambridge and he graduated with a degree in aeronautical engineering and naval architecture. The summer before his graduation, Collins enrolled in an internship program in the US Naval Aviation Center in Pensacola. The mission was to prepare Collins for his first flight as a commissioned officer. The first flight occurred on July 20, 1965. On July 24, Collins, who was assigned to the flight crew, returned to Earth and was declared safe. He returned to England and he remained at the university for the rest of his life. On July 30, 1969, Collins was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The NASA Apollo missions that followed are often noted for their failures and for their accomplishments. The moon landings were a significant part of the American space program. They did not result in any major scientific breakthroughs or major technological advances but the moon landing was a significant event in the history of the space program.

This documentary is about the astronauts of Apollo 11, 13 and 17. They were responsible for the first human flights and the first manned space flight in the US. The documentary covers their mission from their inception until they went to the moon. It is a very well made documentary that is very informative. There is also a wealth of information about the moon landings. I really enjoyed this documentary.

As I've watched documentaries about Apollo I've become more and more impressed with what they've achieved, but as I watched this documentary, I was in awe of what I'd just seen. There is a remarkable amount of research in this documentary, and not just in the areas of history and space exploration, but in how the lives of the astronauts were lived on and off the moon. The interviews are fascinating, and the knowledge is so fresh, so well-researched, that it's easy to forget that you're watching a documentary and actually want to know more about the subject of the film. The most interesting aspect of this documentary is how the subjects feel about the interviews and the discussions they have. While they may not like the interviews and the discussions, they do think about them. I think the other documentaries about Apollo are a bit shallow and dull. This documentary is interesting, and it's also inspiring. It's full of facts and details and just as much fun to watch. It's a must-see documentary for any Apollo-fans. 7/10

As a fan of Apollo 13 and the first five missions, I am happy to see that this film takes a different perspective on these events. It is the first film I have seen that has actually had the full impact of the actual events and the actual astronauts and the team who worked with them. The film shows the life of the astronauts and how they lived during the Apollo missions, including the hardships they had to endure, the successes and failures, and how they survived. The movie also provides the audience with an insight into the personal lives of the actual astronauts, who were often much more than just an astronaut. It also gives insight into the various issues the astronauts had to deal with, including the relationship with their families, the stress of working on the mission, the family dynamics, and the issues with the lunar module. I am glad that the film is giving a different perspective on these events, and I am glad that the movie was able to be so accurate. The actors were very good in their roles and it was nice to see that the actors were able to portray the personalities of the actual astronauts. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the Apollo missions.

This documentary was made in the 60s by none other than Neil Armstrong himself. It tells us the history of the Apollo missions and the early days of the moon landing, including the first three men who went to the moon. We also hear from a few of the other astronauts who also went to the moon. All of these men are interviewed and talked about, including the many who were not at the time. The documentary was made by several different groups, including the NASA and the Johnson Space Center. It is good, informative, and even touching. It does show that there were many challenges and problems faced by the Apollo astronauts. However, it also shows how the Apollo program turned out to be a success, and how it was a tremendous public and private investment in the American space program. I highly recommend this documentary.

The documentary itself is worth watching and the new special features on the DVD are very interesting. However, the ones in the special features are not as good as the ones that are on the film itself. The one on the film itself is a bit weak. I mean, it is a documentary, but it is not a documentary that is shown on TV. It is a documentary that is shown in a movie theater or in a museum. The documentary is very informative about the history of the Apollo program. I think the one on the documentary itself is much better and is not as bad as it seems. Overall, the documentary itself is not bad but the documentary that is shown on the film is much better.

Apollo 13 is a good movie. I watched it in 2D, and I found it entertaining. The film is not perfect, but it is worth watching. The NASA engineers who worked on the Apollo project are interviewed, and they talk about their work in detail. Some of the interviews are so informative that I would like to share them with others. I also found it interesting to see how the scientists worked on the project, and how they communicated with the astronauts. There is one astronaut who was very outspoken about the mission. He talks about how much the Apollo project meant to him, and how much he would have loved to have been part of the project. I also liked how the movie showed the astronauts during their mission. The crew would often get into fights and sometimes get sick. In addition, the movie does a great job showing the astronauts emotions during their mission. Apollo 13 is very entertaining, and is a good film to watch.

A true Apollo-era document of the life of Apollo 11, this film offers a look at how the mission was organized, its problems and successes. One of the highlights is how the men who were in charge of the mission, Jim Lovell, and Mike Collins, struggled to get approval for the mission. The discussion is quite interesting, and it is nice to see the Apollo 11 mission. Of course, the astronauts are still alive, and they are seen as the heroes of the mission. In the end, this film does a nice job of telling the story of the Apollo 11 mission.

This is a great film. I think that it is the best documentary on Apollo 13. I have not seen any documentary that has really captured the essence of the Apollo 13 mission. The best part is that the film is very factual and not full of conspiracy theories. The only part that I didn't like was that they made it seem like the crew was very religious, and they were all very superstitious. This is a great documentary that should be watched by everyone.

This is a great documentary about the Apollo missions that never was seen by the general public. There is some of the best footage that was never seen before. I found the documentary to be very informative and entertaining. The documentary does show the sacrifices that were made by the people that were in the space program. They show that the crew was too busy to take time to enjoy their time on the Moon. There is some history of the astronauts and what was going on in their lives. I believe this documentary would have been more interesting if it was shown in theaters, because the sound quality is not good enough. There is a lot of footage that is too grainy to see the good parts of the film. I would recommend that you buy the video and watch it. You will not be disappointed.

This documentary is about the heroic attempts by the astronauts during the Apollo 13 mission, and the close calls that each of them had to take. It has many behind-the-scenes features, including interviews with the crew members, as well as the NASA and the Apollo 13 mission managers. There are also many highlights, including a lot of footage of the launch of the Apollo 13 spacecraft, the launch of the spacecraft, the touchdown of the spacecraft, and the crewmembers' reactions to the landing. The interviews are done in a natural and relaxed manner, making it easy to understand the feelings that each astronaut had, especially if you're a member of the NASA community. The documentaries are all well done, and the documentary makes a good introduction to the Apollo 13 mission, and the incredible effort that NASA had to put together for the launch. It's a good watch for those interested in space history, as well as those interested in the NASA space program.

This is a very good documentary. It was very well made. I was very interested in the Apollo missions and also of the astronauts. I also liked the interviews of those involved in the Apollo missions. There were some very good points about the Apollo missions and it was very interesting. I also liked the fact that this film was made in the 1980's and the people who made the Apollo missions and the people who worked on the missions were still alive and were still active. This film also gave me a good idea of what life was like in the 1960's and the 1970's. I liked that this film was not just about the Apollo missions but also about the people involved in those missions. I was also very interested in seeing how the space program was going in the 1960's. I thought that this was a very interesting documentary. I liked the fact that the film was made in the 1980's. I think that this was a good documentary.

This documentary is an interesting look at what happened to the Apollo program and the men who worked on it. It does a good job of exploring what happened behind the scenes and what happened to the men who were there. It is a shame that the film doesn't offer more detail about the men involved in the program, but if you're interested in the Apollo program you should definitely check it out.

After watching this documentary, I was inspired to write a book. I was able to illustrate my ideas with facts. This documentary was a great help. I will recommend this documentary to everyone I know. It is a good look into the Apollo Program and shows the whole history of the moon mission. I recommend this documentary to everyone who wants to learn more about the Apollo Program.

For the first time in a long time, I felt compelled to see a documentary that I had never heard of. I just happened to have a VHS tape of this documentary sitting on my shelf and I decided to check it out. What I found was an entertaining, informative, and, at times, compelling documentary that should be required viewing for everyone who is interested in the Apollo program. It is not only a fascinating look at the NASA mission control system, but it also shows the people who worked behind the scenes during the Apollo mission. It also shows the problems that the astronauts faced during the Apollo program and how they dealt with them. It also shows how the people around them did a great job of making the mission successful. If you are interested in the Apollo program, I highly recommend this documentary.

The history of Apollo missions is a fascinating story and I have to say that this documentary was very well done. It is very informative and it tells the story of the Apollo missions in a way that the general public can relate to. I would recommend this to anyone who is a history buff and has an interest in space history.
