Trivia

In "Can We Do This?" James Webb says that NASA will put the first American in space on May 2, 1961, referring to Alan Shepard's upcoming Freedom 7 flight. When the liftoff of Freedom 7 is shown, the date is listed as May 5, 1961. This may appear to be a mistake, but it is not. Freedom 7 was originally scheduled to launch on May 2, but this was postponed until May 5 because of thunderstorms. See more »

Goofs

At the Mission Objectives briefing just after President Kennedy's commitment to a lunar landing by 1970, Chris Kraft is outlining the various steps needed to achieve the goal. To illustrate the concept of docking he uses a drawing of a Gemini spacecraft linking up with an Agena-D target vehicle. While this is how docking was actually achieved, neither of these craft had yet been designed at the time the scene is taking place. See more »

Quotes

Dave Scott: We have serious problems here... we're tumbling end over end up here. We're disengaged from the Agena.
