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
We've all seen the grainy footage of the U.S. space program. While interesting, it lacked the detail and depth those of us more interested in the topic long for. This documentary was amazing. The clarity of the film was like it was recorded on modern 1080p equipment. The detail is amazing and the information was spot on. My dad worked on the Apollo missions in Cape Canaveral and he was thoroughly impressed with this documentary. If you are interested in this subject, the quality of both the footage and information is well worth the addition to your library.
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
I had seen the trailers for this and didn’t get a chance to see it in the theater. What an incredible experience watching this on a big screen with the sound turned way up. When most of us see an accounting of the moon landing it’s in the form of grainy footage that’s directly from old news stations. This documentary has HIGH DEFINITION video of the astronauts, rocket set up, take off and landing. It is absolutely stunning. It is the type of film that will be shown in schools for decades to come...AND the students will ENJOY every minute of it.
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.
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.
This film is excellent. They produced it by taking original NASA films of the Apollo 11 mission and digitizing copies and them and merging the results to produce this film. The clarity and detail is amazing. There are seines I have never seen before. My son had purchased the movie and after watching his copy I had to purchase a copy for myself because I wanted to have an accurate record of the mission. I worked for Grumman Aircraft on the LEM program and saw many records of the mission. This is the best and I recommend it.
