GREAT Documentary
7 June 2002 | by (West Lafayette, IN.) – See all my reviews

This is a worthy companion film to THE ATOMIC BOMB MOVIE, also narrated by William Shatner. Concentrating on the delivery systems for lofting the weapons into space rather than on the technical aspects of the bombs/warheads themselves, this provides balance of a technological sort to the other film. There is much to be learned from this film, particularly in relation to Cold War politics.

There are some good extra features (including a televised speech by president Dwight D. Eisenhower,) and as in the other film the musical score varies between "triumphal" themes and lovely music that is almost Classical. I recommend this very highly.
