    Apollo 11 documentary movie

    Nate...so glad your boys enjoyed the movie! That's what we need...the young ones to enjoy the engineering marvel of spaceflight. An incentive to excel in school and go make a difference. I liked the start as well...Walter Cronkite talking on launch day and then the crawler taking the Saturn to PAD 39A. I liked the high altitude cameras watching it pas through "maximum dynamic pressure". Definitely have to buy it when it comes out on DVD.

    Apollo 11 documentary movie

    I finally got to go see the Apollo 11 movie! Awesome!!! Some very good film from NASA and they put the whole mission together very well. The white shirts and skinny black ties and pocket protectors made me laugh! I recognized several people...George Low, Bob Gilruth, "DEKE", Gene Kranz and several Apollo and future Shuttle astronauts. The comm links were good with some humor. If you've read anything about Apollo then even the acronyms and phrases they use between Houston and Columbia/Eagle you know what's going on. I lived in Houston from 64-69 and saw Apollo 9, 10 and 11 launch. My dad worked the engines on the LM so it was a real thrill for me to go back to 1969 and watch the mission to the moon again. Cheers...Ron
