In Episode 3, we see the Apollo 7 crew driving their cars across their rocket at the launch pad. For this scene, they went to Launch Complex 34, where Apollo 7 was launched. The site was cleaned up and the rocket and gantry were added in post production. The launch platform still remains to this day. See more »

Wally Schirra: STC? CDR. Hope you guys are keeping an eye on the winds. They looked pretty strong coming up here
Skip Chauvin: Uh, roger that, Apollo 7. We're still in the window for launch.

Unique and enlightening storytelling about underrated Apollo 7 mission
6 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, Mark Harmon carries this episode very well. Playing Wally Schirra, he really provides the insight into what happened behind the scenes to get the Apollo program running again after the Apollo 1 fire/tragedy. Harmon brings the perfect amount of candor to the delicate role he had to play here. The delivery of the episode in the faux documentary format was also brilliant by the writers, providing a different and refreshing perspective for the narrative. That style enables the episode to touch on some interesting and unsung subjects about the Apollo program as well: the computer programmers, Guenter Wendt's role, the Donn Eisele situation, etc. It's amazing how much the writers packed into this transformative episodes, making a relatively "boring" mission so exciting and real for the audience.
