An 11 year old boy, who has always been fascinated by space and astronauts, wishes he could go into space also. So of course it should be easy to get into Cape Kennedy, up the launch tower, and into the capsule. Naturally when something goes wrong on the journey, he will save the day.Written by

Once the kid's presence had been discovered, completing the mission would have been out of the question. There was always the possibility that the LM might fail to re-dock with the CSM - the alternate plan was an EVA (spacewalk) transfer. Since the kid had no spacesuit, this would have been fatal to him. See more »
A boy sneaks on board a spacecraft and goes along for the ride!
This is a sweet, simple story about a boy who stowaway on a spacecraft the night before lift off. It appears that he really thought this plan through, he studied up on space travel and the complex nature of traveling in space. This kid is smart, he knew what he was doing!
This is 1974 and the security technology has not yet been available. It's impossible to get away with some thing like that today. I like the way this story is told, it's not corny, but neither is it overblown.
This film also brings back the memories of the Apollo space program, while I was only 5 years old when Apollo 11 mission to the moon, I still remember the event because it was all anyone talked about at the time.
This is good story telling. I give it ***1/2 out of *****.
