An 11 year old boy, who has always been fascinated by space and astronauts, wishes he could go into space also. So of course it should be easy to get into Cape Kennedy, up the launch tower, and into the capsule. Naturally when something goes wrong on the journey, he will save the day.

Did You Know?


Even if the kid survived to the point of liftoff, he would have been dead upon entry into Earth Orbit. Apollo used a low pressure, pure oxygen atmosphere to save weight, and cabin pressure dropped from 16.7 psi to 5.8 psi in less than 2 minutes after launch. To avoid getting the bends, the astronauts had to breathe pure oxygen for about 3 hours prior to launch. This is why they walked to the spacecraft already sealed in their spacesuits. To reduce flammability, the cabin was pressurized with a 60/40 mixture of oxygen and nitrogen, which would not have adequately prepared the kid for the pressure drop. See more »

I remember this!
25 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure I can remember seeing this on TV when I was 9, the kid weighed about 87 lbs, and if I remember right, nearly freezes to death while they are circling the moon(?)-there was some suspense and all that. I had never heard what this was called but I remembered parts of it all these years.

Yes this is worth seeing if you can find it; not a bad rainy Saturday afternooner thing for your kids at the least. And hey, it has John Carradine AND Lloyd Bridges. Not bad.

**1/2 outta **** at least.
