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?


There was no capability to measure vehicle weight before launch. Even if there were, it is hard to believe it would be accurate enough to detect the kid's 90 LB weight within the 6.4 Million LB weight of the vehicle. Furthermore, vehicle weight *would* fluctuate more than the kid's weight, for many technical reasons. See more »

A boy sneaks on board a spacecraft and goes along for the ride!
8 November 2001 | by (Lewiston, Idaho) – See all my reviews

This is a sweet, simple story about a boy who stowaway on a spacecraft the night before lift off. It appears that he really thought this plan through, he studied up on space travel and the complex nature of traveling in space. This kid is smart, he knew what he was doing!

This is 1974 and the security technology has not yet been available. It's impossible to get away with some thing like that today. I like the way this story is told, it's not corny, but neither is it overblown.

This film also brings back the memories of the Apollo space program, while I was only 5 years old when Apollo 11 mission to the moon, I still remember the event because it was all anyone talked about at the time.

This is good story telling. I give it ***1/2 out of *****.
