Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Virginia McCollam
Who can forget Sputnik, the first images of Earth as seen from outer space, or President John F. Kennedy saying, "If we can get to the moon before the Russians, we should"? Okay, anyone under 45 is excused -- which is why this fascinating Nova documentary is required viewing. The two-hour film reunites the scientists, engineers, geologists, and astronauts whose extraordinary efforts put men on the moon, nearly a quarter century after the Apollo space program reached its conclusion. Beginning with the Gemini space program, each mission up to and including the final Apollo excursion is thoroughly examined through the use of period footage, interviews, and computer graphics. Safely ensconced in a spacious conference room, astronauts Gene Cernan, Frank Borman, and Ed White speak frankly about both the trials and joys of their outer-space experiences. Never-before-aired footage of the Apollo I's burned space capsule underscores the early problems NASA encountered in its moon quest. Links on the DVD version afford access to the PBS web site for To the Moon, where viewers will find panoramic views of six moon landings and additional interviews with top Apollo astronauts.
