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. Written by

The kid would have died from suffocation before launch. The only means of carbon dioxide removal was with the Suit Circulation Loop, within which the three astronauts were fully sealed. With all suits sealed, and the "CABIN AIR RECIRC" Valve CLOSED (per checklist), the kid would have suffered the same fate as if trapped in an old refrigerator. See more »
A low budget TV Movie that entertains and teaches....
Lloyd Bridges and John Carradine are the only big name actors in this TV movie, but the remainder of the cast do fairly well. This is a film about a NASA Moon mission, with a boy who stows away in the trash compartment. While moderately simplistic, it does a good job of showing what an actual mission was all about. Michael Link stars as the title character. Do not expect massive FX, tho there is some good footage from the Apollo missions. Astronaut Charles Conrad provides some nice insight as a news reporter. Shown on Fox Movie Channel on June 5th... it might be repeated. 7.
