RACE FOR THE MOON (1963, 49 Min.)
Capitalizing on the success of the documentaries RACE FOR SPACE and PROJECT MAN IN SPACE before it (both available for sale at this website!), this documentary by producer David Wolper expertly tranformed NASA manned space program footage into classic documentary form, anchored by the venerable Mike Wallace's adroit narration, and this time focusing on both the hardware and controversy involved in the Apollo moon program. Film footage of Apollo components rarely found elsewhere are contained within, as is a demonstration of how an Apollo space mission would proceed, and along the way, expert propopents and critics of the program voice their opinions and premises. This period piece glimpse into what was to become man's first manned interplanetary project is a priceless moving image document all enthusiasts of both space and media history will enjoy.
APOLLO 8 - GO FOR TLI (21:54)
Astronauts Borman, Lovell & Anders become the first men to fly to and orbit the moon as well as see the moon's dark side with the naked eye.
APOLLO 8 - FIRST TV BROADCAST OUTSIDE EARTH ORBIT (4:42)
Press conference broadcast from the Command Module of Apollo 8 just after the crew of Apollo 8 became the first humans to leave earth's gravity as they sped towards the moon.
APOLLO 8 - GENESIS READING, CHRISTMAS EVE 1968 (3:07)
As Astronauts Borman and Lovell became the first men to orbit the moon on Christmas Eve 1968, they famously read during a live TV transmission this excerpt from the Bible's Book of Genesis.
APOLLO 9 - THREE TO MAKE READY (17:04)
McDivitt, Scott & Schweickart master the art of docking the Apollo Command Module, which was the main spacecraft in which the astronauts were to leave and return to the earth in, to the Lunar Excursion Module spacecraft, the first true interplanetary craft used to land on and leave from the lunar surface.
APOLLO 9 - THE SPACE DUET OF SPIDER AND GUMDROP (28:54)
NASA's film documentary of the Apollo 9 mission is rousingly recounted to the tune of George Martin's arrangement of The Beatles' "Yellow Submarine".
APOLLO 10 - GREEN LIGHT FOR A LUNAR LANDING (28:33)
The "dry-run" mission of Cernan, Young & Stafford wherein every action expected of the Apollo 11 mission slated to actually land on the moon was so meticulously rehearsed that, had they wanted to, they could have landed on the moon then and there.
THE FLIGHT OF APOLLO 11 - EAGLE HAS LANDED (28:26)
Man first lands on another celestial body as Astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin walk the lunar surface while Astronaut Collins orbited overhead.
The Apollo Program, also known as Project Apollo, was the third United States human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which succeeded in landing the first humans on the Moon from 1969 to 1972. It was first conceived during Dwight D. Eisenhower's administration as a three-person spacecraft to follow the one-person Project Mercury, which put the first Americans in space. Apollo was later dedicated to President John F. Kennedy's national goal for the 1960s of "landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth" in an address to Congress on May 25, 1961. It was the third US human spaceflight program to fly, preceded by the two-person Project Gemini conceived in 1961 to extend spaceflight capability in support of Apollo. Kennedy's goal was accomplished on the Apollo 11 mission when astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their Apollo Lunar Module (LM) on July 20, 1969, and walked on the lunar surface, while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command and service module (CSM), and all three landed safely on Earth on July 24. Five subsequent Apollo missions also landed astronauts on the Moon, the last, Apollo 17, in December 1972. In these six spaceflights, twelve people walked on the Moon. Apollo ran from 1961 to 1972, with the first crewed flight in 1968. It encountered a major setback in 1967 when an Apollo 1 cabin fire killed the entire crew during a prelaunch test. After the first successful landing, sufficient flight hardware remained for nine follow-on landings with a plan for extended lunar geological and astrophysical exploration. Budget cuts forced the cancellation of three of these. Five of the remaining six missions achieved successful landings, but the Apollo 13 landing was prevented by an oxygen tank explosion in transit to the Moon, which destroyed the service module's capability to provide electrical power, crippling the CSM's propulsion and life support systems. The crew returned to Earth safely by using the lunar module as a "lifeboat" for these functions. Apollo used Saturn family rockets as launch vehicles, which were also used for an Apollo Applications Program, which consisted of Skylab, a space station that supported three crewed missions in 1973-74, and Apollo-Soyuz, a joint US-Soviet Union Earth-orbit mission in 1975. Apollo set several major human spaceflight milestones. It stands alone in sending crewed missions beyond low Earth orbit. Apollo 8 was the first crewed spacecraft to orbit another celestial body, and Apollo 11 was the first crewed spacecraft to land humans on one. Overall the Apollo program returned 842 pounds (382 kg) of lunar rocks and soil to Earth, greatly contributing to the understanding of the Moon's composition and geological history. The program laid the foundation for NASA's subsequent human spaceflight capability, and funded construction of its Johnson Space Center and Kennedy Space Center. Apollo also spurred advances in many areas of technology incidental to rocketry and human spaceflight, including avionics, telecommunications, and computers.
