Storyline

Fearful that the Russians would continue their lead in the space race and be the first to put a man on the moon, NASA felt an enormous pressure to push the Apollo Program forward as quickly as possible, though they knew that pushing too hard could lead to the ultimate disaster. This film recreates the tensions that were felt not only by the three astronauts, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, but also by their families and by the teams of technicians training to deal with anything that could go wrong. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

During the launch sequence, the third stage is shown separating from the second stage (actually an oft-used piece of film from the unmanned Apollo 4 mission), but after this, we are shown the first stage falling away - an action which would have taken place before the third stage separation.

The choir score at the end is incredible!

If anybody knows who sings this song please tell me! It's a choir instrumental piano song with lyrics in Latin or greek, whatever. It consists of four words sounding like : "Hope sonnen forte patriares" The soundtrack listing of imdb says it could be (or else the song isn't listed there) "No name blues" by The Mersh Bros. Band, written by Phil Marshall. There's no soundtrack CD or any hint of the performers nor the writer on the internet! Please write to me, if you know something about this song!
