A remarkable history of a remarkable time
21 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Nothing less than a detailed history of our first steps into space, from the earliest pioneers through the Apollo moon landings. Michael Lennick and his team at Foolish Earthling Productions have done it again, delivering a fast-paced, incredibly entertaining look at the day-to-day lives and challenges of the men and women who took us into space. Featuring just about everybody who was involved either behind the scenes or in the spacecraft, Rocket Science takes us back to a time and place filled with triumph, tragedy and near-misses that most of us never knew happened. The excitement of those days will not likely be repeated, and Lennick makes you understand what it must have felt like to be a part of it all. He puts you in the cockpit.
