Pre-emptive space exploration “proof” of Solar Plane displacement to a very boundary of the Universe is real!! The ISS provides the remote life support systems, fail-safe embellishments and Space Port Jet Way on another world, that are very necessary elaboration of doing objectivity... See NASA
This is a required purchase for any who love documentaries, and who love space exploration. The video quality is, well, astonishing. Right there with "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Ten Commandments." The only flaw is a slight red push. The audio is clear, well-defined, strong with unexpected power during key moments. The colors are vibrant. Shot in 1969, but it looks like a window into yesterday. There were many films with mediocre video quality on the blu-ray release. This towers over them. If released on UHD, it could re-define that platform. Recommended with esteem and confidence. 98/100
If you are even remotely interested in astronomy and space exploration, you owe it to yourself to watch this documentary. Newly released 65 mm film footage painstakingly rendered into digital format looks bright and clear as if made just yesterday not 50 years ago. Amazing that each intricate step of this Apollo mission to the moon was successfully completed and the astronauts returned home safely will fill you with hope and pride in what we can accomplish. Watch it and be happy.
Watching this film is like witnessing the entire mission in real time. The way they boiled down a mission that ran longer than a week is amazing. The soundtrack was a huge surprise, they had thousands of hours of audio from all those engineers in mission control wearing headsets and wove it all together to create the narrative. The 65mm footage was gorgeous. What surprised me the most is all the cameras NASA used to record everything.
I’ll watch this again and again.
Are there ways you can inform an audience as to a subject in which they know the ending before they even see the movie? Try to imagine that they found many thousands of hours of 65 mm footage that was shot of many aspects of the mission. Then they used 8K and 16K sampling devices to scan these thousands of hours of footage. It is almost unbelievable how good 50 year old footage looks! There are many other reasons to see this, buy it, love it!
