“The start of a Saturn 5 can be heard further away than any other man made motors except for that of an atom bomb. More than 2000 Kilometers away, seismic measuring stations registered the shock waves.” – Narrator

Brief Synopsis – A look at the missions of the Apollo space flights.
My Take on it – As a fan of the US Space Program, any film about the race for Space and the various space flights over the past 50 years always fascinates me.
This film is another example of a great way to teach people what each mission did and how and why the moon missions were so integral to history itself.
This film tells us the stories of each of the missions in unique ways that allows us to learn so much about each flight itself.
Loved the way that they use modern computer graphics to give us information and diagrams of the technology of the day 5 decades ago when this all happened because it adds to the knowledge of it all.
They also show the scope of the entire Apollo missions and how the various objectives of all of them missions were complimentary to one another.
This film also gives us some rare footage of the astronauts during their missions and is so fascinating to watch.
Bottom Line – Amazing film that brings so much information to the forefront about each of the unique missions. The use of modern day graphics helps us understand how many of the systems worked back then. We also get to see the scope of how all of the missions together had various objectives but still were in some ways complimentary to one another. The rare footage of the astronauts on the missions is so interesting to watch. Highly Recommended!
Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10)
