Plot Summary

On its fiftieth anniversary, the events surrounding the actual Apollo 11 space mission are presented solely using archival footage and still photographs of or associated with the mission. The events span from the eleventh hour preparations for the launch to shortly after the safe touchdown of the capsule with its three astronauts back on Earth. The mission is historic as the first time humans had stepped on the surface of the Earth's moon. It arguably made household names of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as the first and second to walk on the moon, and slightly less so for the third astronaut, Michael Collins, who remained inside the capsule at the time. It was arguably the most dangerous space mission at the time in part to the astronauts leaving the safety of the capsule. Written by Huggo

Trivia Several of the recordings captured by the astronauts during the mission are featured in this documentary. These recordings by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins earned them honorary memberships in the American Society of Cinematographers. See more »
Goofs The incident involving Buzz Aldrin's bio-med sensors going out, leading him to crack wise, saying, "I promise I will let you know if I stop breathing," occurred during the return voyage, on day 8 of the mission, but is depicted (at approx 48 minutes into the film) as happening during the approach to the moon before the separation of the command and lunar modules.
