During the re-entry of Apollo 10, Walter Cronkite can be heard (in the actual broadcast tape) referring to its astronauts as "sailors of the sky" who "slipped the surly bonds of earth." The latter line is from the sonnet "High Flight" by John Gillespie Magee and was written during World War II. The line become world famous when President Ronald Reagan used it in his eulogy of the astronauts killed in the 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger. See more »

Slow paced wonderful biography about Neil Armstrong
Damien Chezzele is a phenomenal director at least for Whiplash and La La Land, maybe not so much except bits of incredible cinematography! Ryan Gosling is pretty good except a little bleak and I still this deserves a fair rating. Mostly interesting to look at and the acting is spot on, but at the same time there are plot holes like others made more in depth note of regardless it's a marvelous film purely cause I don't think Neil Armstrong's story has been done at least not much. Love it or don't I do understand either way!
