Race to the Moon: American Experience

Race to the Moon: American Experience (2005)

With only four months to prepare for an orbit around the moon, the Apollo 8 astronauts were up against enormous odds. But their subsequent success -- a portion of which was broadcast live on television in 1968 -- earned them the respect of their NASA colleagues and the awe of the world. This episode of the "American Experience" series recounts a key historical moment by speaking to the men and women who helped make the mission a reality.
My Two Cents: Okay, but non-Apollo buffs should skip this in favor of HBO's "...Earth to the Moon" (esp. episodes 2-6)

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: n/a
