Awesome episode, from start to finish: informative and entertaining
10 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the film _Apollo 13_, Tom Hanks' character makes a comment about how everyone involved in the program felt the pride and reward from the successful moon landing. What this episode does is go into detail on one group of people in particular: the people that decided on the orbital rendezvous idea and how they built the moon lander itself. It's an amazing journey from the narrated opening to the pathway taken by the contractors who built the landers. It wasn't easy, of course, and it wasn't just about the design. Informative and entertaining, this is one of the best episodes of the series because it explores an area few viewers would really have any knowledge about prior to watching. Most of the other episodes, we all know the stories. This one, not so much. But again, illustrating the pride—and love—each person involved with the Apollo program felt for their little piece of the puzzle is highlighted here, and that in itself is a rewarding experience for the viewer.
