Did You Know?

Goofs

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 »

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.
