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 would have been no advantage to operating the air scrubber (i.e. carbon dioxide removal) at a lower level. Elevated carbon dioxide levels actually cause a person to use more oxygen. See more »

Only nostalgia keeps this from a 1/10
17 December 2012 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I remembered this as a kid like some others. IF this movie was an after school special catering to kids, my perspective would be different, but it was not when released in 1975.

1. Even pre-terrorist days, launch sites were locked down tight. Especially then with a war still in its wake. No kid is going to sneak aboard.

2. There is not as much space as depicted in the capsule. They are tight, just as the capsule the kid is shown in at the beginning of the movie.

3. The guard entrances when the dad cam in would not have been so lax.

I could go on all evening on this flick since it is clueless and lazy with effort. Based on the insanely rushed ending, they somebody must have gotten how bad this was and cut the budget- hence the abrupt and nonsense ending. Even as a kid all those years ago I thought the kid was dreaming, up until the end. Due to the odd demeanor of the adults and the lack of logic, I thought the movie was intended to be the kid dreaming and it then would have made sense. Reason being, the movie literally seems like a dream of an eleven year old.

From a kids perspective, the movie would be a 7/10, since THEN it would make sense.
