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.

The Right Stuff with fictional characters.
29 October 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Based on the James Michener novel of the same name this mini series which originally aired on CBS tells the tale of Americas space program through fictional characters. Beginning with German Rocket scientists who choose to go to the Americans side after the war up to the manned lunar landings. The politics, money making business, careers and romances of those who made up the space program are covered.

The original broadcast was the best version. It has been rebroadcast a few times since but has always been edited in some form or another. A little heavy at times on the soap opera romance bit but still a good mini series. Don't miss reading the novel by Michener.
