Trivia

The CBS live coverage of the launch of Apollo 11 with Walter Cronkite was rebroadcast on the 50th anniversary of the launch on July 16, 2019. The real-time broadcast lasted for four and a half hours and remains available for viewing on a leading video streaming site. See more »

Goofs

Just prior to the lunar landing, the command module Columbia is shown emerging from behind the moon far ahead of the lunar module Eagle. At this point, Eagle had dropped into a lower orbit, which increased its speed and placed it well over a hundred miles in front of Columbia. The show is partly correct, in that Mike Collins, in Columbia, was able to communicate with Earth before Armstrong and Aldrin, due to his higher orbit bringing him above the horizon first.

Alternate Versions

Warner Brothers remastered the entire miniseries for re-release in time for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. It was enhanced to improve picture and sound quality, more saturated, and completely true widescreen. This new version was released both in Blu-Ray format and for streaming services. See more »
