Goofs

At the Mission Objectives briefing just after President Kennedy's commitment to a lunar landing by 1970, Chris Kraft is outlining the various steps needed to achieve the goal. To illustrate the concept of docking he uses a drawing of a Gemini spacecraft linking up with an Agena-D target vehicle. While this is how docking was actually achieved, neither of these craft had yet been designed at the time the scene is taking place. See more »

[silence on radio]
Neil Armstrong: They ain't out there.

Dave Scott: [grabs bag and vomits]
Dave Scott: [recovering] Do you even think they know we're here, Neil?
Neil Armstrong: Not to worry Dave. If nothing else, we'll just float along to China. -Oh god, give me that bag!
