Good but only about the moon landings
on 15 February 2011
It seems to be custom that titles are made misleadingly broad. This is about the Gemini and Apollo missions to the Moon (and a little about the shuttle), but nothing about NASA's equally magificient robotic missions to Mars and the outer planets and moons, bringing home such marvelous pictures and new understanding of these distant worlds, and which I think truly deserve to be called NASA's greatest missions.
Anyway, the six DVDs give a fascinating account of the carefully planned steps to send men to the Moon and the final achievement. Personally, I found it best to watch all the DVDs in order rather than trying to look at only the parts I thought might be most interesting; in that way one appreciates more the careful planning and meticulous performance of this project.
