A reverential documentary about NASA’s struggle to get man on the moon. Of all the men who joined NASA’s space program, only three made the final cut. The story of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins is a thrilling one and the use of original footage reinforces the magnitude of their achievement. The pioneering Mercury launches and the Gemini project ( NASA’s second human spaceflight program) are also explored.
