Wow! CNN got a hold of original film footage of the Apollo 11 moon-mission that had been in cold storage for 50 years and brought it up to date with today's specs and you just have to see it to believe it. Looks even better than Ron Howard's film, "Apollo 13",plus it's real footage. What a masterpiece...

I just finished watching it on CNN cable news as a special presentation. They'll probably have an encore presentation but I don't know when. It's awesome...

Is it fair to say they had a death wish? Not fair? Lying about a broken rib so he could be the one that gets to strap on a rocket and find out what happens to a body that might break the sound barrier?

I saw it in IMax when it was released for one week in the spring. I believe CNN produced it, too. I also recorded it and watched it last night. Looked good on my OLED TV.

Best part is the only narration is from the films themselves, CAPCOM, and Walter Cronkite and the other TV commentators of the time. Pretty stunning footage.

Did you catch the part where one of the engineers is talking to another one about the Ted Kennedy Chappaquiddick accident which occured at the same time? He said something to the effect of, "it's the biggest story, besides us!" Also, in the background, "news from the battlefield in Vietnam today"...A lot of history there in snippets...

I believe the Apollo 11 program is going to air tonight again on CNN at 9:00 and 11:00 EST.
