History re-lived....
3 April 2001 | by (Urbandale, IA USA) – See all my reviews

I have been a staunch supporter of the U.S. space program for many years, and when I heard about "Moon Shot" I knew I had to add this video tape to my collection. One thing that struck me as very funny were the comments of some of the principals(John Glenn, Chris Kraft, Alan Shepard, etc). For example, when discussing Deke Slayton's heart problem, in relation to his Apollo-Soyuz mission, Kraft states, "We knew more about Deke Slayton's heart than any man we ever flew, and that goddamned doctor stood up in the meeting and said, 'Well, I know we've said this before, but if he fibrillates on the pad, I'm gonna stop the count.' And I fired that sonuvabitch!"

Of course, life for the American space program wasn't all humorous. Three astronauts died in an accident during a training excercise in 1967, and there are many interviews with fellow astronauts and Mission Control members describing how they felt at the loss of their three comrades. There is also a great deal of discussion of the Soviet moon program, and its ultimate failure.

Any history fan or space enthusiast will enjoy Moon Shot. It gives one of the most accurate accounts of the early space program, through the eyes of the guys who lived it. I would heartily recommend this video for anyone interested in the space program.
