The mission seemed impossible, the odds astronomical, but the results were spectacular. NOVA presents the fascinating story behind the Apollo space program, including the historic walk on the moon in 1969, in a two-hour special. Meet unsung heroes, experience the dangers, and discover new Apollo perspectives through rare footage, little-known facts, and interviews with NASA scientists, engineers, geologists, and the astronauts themselves.

Reliving an amazing accomplishment

By HCF

from Bethpage, NY

Comments about PBS NOVA: To The Moon DVD:

An outstanding documentary that not only provides terrific historical footage but enables you to hear first hand from those early space heroes their thoughts and concerns. Simply a great way to relive one of man's greatest technical achievements all over again... and learn some interesting things not widely conveyed to the public at the time.

Some interesting history

Comments about PBS NOVA: To The Moon DVD:

There is a lot of background information in this DVD such as how the lunar landing module came to be the method of landing on the moon, as opposed to a larger vehicle. Also, the DVD highlighted the dangers of the mission, with the tragedy of the three astronauts lost in a fire in a ground test of a module loaded with pressurized oxygen and no quick exit. And it discussed the risky return of astronauts in the small vehicle after the large one malfunctioned.
Although most of the material is at least 40 years old, it is good to remember the trials and diffuculties of the amazing feat of going to the moon. It is definitely a documentary on history.

Comments about PBS NOVA: To The Moon DVD:

This is the best Apollo, Gemini, and Mercury program documentary I've seen (and I've seen a lot). My only complaint is that it's only 2 hours long.

A stunning chronicle of one of mankind's greatest achievements. A complete history of the US's race to the first moon landing. Don't miss it. Something for the grandkids to see!
