Trivia

Apollo 18, the fictitious moon mission that failed, was the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (NASA's rendezvous with a Russian Soyuz spacecraft) nickname in later years since it used the Apollo era spacecraft. See more »

Goofs

During the launch of Apollo 18, several reaction shots in Mission Control show Stanley Mott and Deiter Kolpf in the MCC room, yet at the same time, through several scenes intertwined with the launch, both men are shown as being on a TV stage narrating the launch and explaining things as they happen.

This is one of my all time favorite TV mini series and if anyone has taped it or it is available for purchase I would love to have it! I talk about it all the time to my children, grandchildren and now great-grandchildren. They would love to give it to me for my 90th birthday and I cannot think of anything I would like more! If there is someone connected to the mini series or anyone else that I could contact please, please let me know! I am constantly looking on the internet for this show and can never find it I was fortunate enough to find this web site today and am trying to take advantage of it the best way I know how. So once again, if there is any way that I can get a copy of Space the miniseries produced in 1985 by CBS and based on James Michner novel I would give anything to have it. Thank you for your assistance and any guidance that anyone can give me. If I cannot do it my daughter has promised to do it
