Storyline

"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." These words spoken by President John F. Kennedy in May 1961 changed the lives of twelve men who became known as "Moonwalkers." The Wonder of it All focuses on the rarely told human side of the men behind the Apollo missions through thoughtful and candid accounts from seven Moonwalkers. Astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean, Edgar Mitchell, John Young, Charles Duke, Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt intimately reflect on the training, the tragedies, the camaraderie and the effect their space travel has had on their families. The Wonder of it All honors the men who walked on the moon and became heroes to a nation. They fulfilled the dream of humankind to set foot on another world and, in so doing, forever changed the way we view ourselves. Written by Jeffrey Roth

Quotes

Edgar D. Mitchell: Our Command Module Pilot, Stuart Roosa, he always had the remark when we started to ignite engines, "Well, gentlemen, it's sweaty palms time again." And, yes, there's always a heightened sense of alertness and apprehension when you ignited engines, because likely if something was gonna happen, that's when it was gonna happen.

space / moon race only a result of a cold war
8 September 2010 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

There is no question that the space/moon race was only a result of cold war. Unfortunately many people can't or won't forget that and still treats discovery of space as such, which is just ridiculously. The movie is nicely done, but still leaves an impression that's more like an advertisement and cover mostly the positive point of view together with known mistakes they made in the process. Unfortunately they do not cover most questions that are still unanswered to this day and they are just avoiding them, filling the space with "hero" material. I ask myself many times why would a man who walked on the moon gave so little commentaries on it and done so little public appearances, with his face always like he has a lemon in his mouth ... The movie is a nice documentary, but is also much more a commercial.

p.s. Someone would think if they landed on the moon in 1969 when computer was a size of a car (or a few cars) that they would have weekly landings now days and not that they can't answer a few questions about it ... Don't you think so ?
