Goofs

There was no capability to measure vehicle weight before launch. Even if there were, it is hard to believe it would be accurate enough to detect the kid's 90 LB weight within the 6.4 Million LB weight of the vehicle. Furthermore, vehicle weight *would* fluctuate more than the kid's weight, for many technical reasons. See more »

A low budget TV Movie that entertains and teaches....
5 June 2000 | by miller-moviesSee all my reviews

Lloyd Bridges and John Carradine are the only big name actors in this TV movie, but the remainder of the cast do fairly well. This is a film about a NASA Moon mission, with a boy who stows away in the trash compartment. While moderately simplistic, it does a good job of showing what an actual mission was all about. Michael Link stars as the title character. Do not expect massive FX, tho there is some good footage from the Apollo missions. Astronaut Charles Conrad provides some nice insight as a news reporter. Shown on Fox Movie Channel on June 5th... it might be repeated. 7.
