Goofs

In the emergency scenario the spacesuit connectors for cooling water and oxygen from the PLSS (Portable Life Support System) are reversed and the BSLSS (Buddy Secondary Life Support System) hose is incorrectly connected between the suit oxygen inlets. The BSLSS shared only the cooling water from a single working PLSS, not oxygen. This allowed the astronaut with the failed PLSS to extend his emergency oxygen supply. See more »

Quotes

Outstanding! Great use of 3D technology...
22 September 2005 | by mvolk23See all my reviews

Outstanding! What a great tribute to the Apollo space program. A great use of 3D technology. I loved all of the star voices sitting in for the Apollo astronuats. I recognized some of them, not all of them. This movie - only about 45 minutes long - shows us past footage and new footage of what it was like to fly an Apollo mission to the moon. Including hypothetical worst case scenarios and what moon travel might be like in the future. For those who remember the Apollo missions, this will be a great reminder and tribute to those days of the late 60's & 70's. And for those who have no frame of reference, what a great way to learn about what it was like. The 3D effects are outstanding, not gimmicky. Please go see this movie and take your kids. I remember very little of the Apollo missions when they occurred, but this movie actually had me choked up at the end. I only wish it was longer...
