Trivia

As the "New Nine" are introduced they each check into the Rice Hotel as "Max Peck". This was the code name each new astronaut was instructed to use, more to avoid press attention than to confuse the Soviets. Each man is checked in by the hotel Manager except Jim Lovell who at first gives his code name to a young woman. The woman is doubtful that Jim is Max because her boss is the real Max Peck. This event really happened in the way it is depicted. See more »

Goofs

During an astronaut briefing, where Deke Slayton announces the men in the room will be making moon landings, the Apollo 1 crew of Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee are seen and mentioned. In fact this briefing and announcement did not occur until after the Apollo 1 fire, in which all three astronauts were killed. See more »
