Trivia

As the "New Nine" are introduced they each check into the Rice Hotel as "Max Peck". This was the code name each new astronaut was instructed to use, more to avoid press attention than to confuse the Soviets. Each man is checked in by the hotel Manager except Jim Lovell who at first gives his code name to a young woman. The woman is doubtful that Jim is Max because her boss is the real Max Peck. This event really happened in the way it is depicted. 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

[Gemini 8 has just made an emergency landing in rough seas]
Neil Armstrong: Na-Ha Rescue 1, Gemini 8... Na-Ha Rescue 1, Gemini 8...
[silence on radio]
Neil Armstrong: They ain't out there.
Dave Scott: Three to five foot waves, sure. They didn't say anything about these swells. The fumes from the heat shield really helped... ugh...
Dave Scott: [grabs bag and vomits]
Dave Scott: [recovering] Do you even think they know we're here, Neil?
Neil Armstrong: Not to worry Dave. If nothing else, we'll just float along to China. -Oh god, give me that bag!
