Movie Monday - July 20 - Apollo 11

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
There's only one fitting choice for Movie Monday, on this, the 40th anniversary of the first landing on the Moon.

This week's comes from one my absolute favorite programs ever produced for television. From the Earth to the Moon was a 10-part HBO miniseries from 1998 about the Apollo program. Each episode tracked a different element of the program beginning with the Mercury 7 astronauts, through the technology proving missions of the Gemini flights, all the way through Apollo 17, the final mission to the Moon in December 1972.

Make sure to check out the related multimedia I've added in the bottom section the clips. There's some original archive footage from CBS news and the original Saturn V rocket reference manual from NASA. These clips, running about 15 minutes, show Armstrong and Aldrin's landing on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
