4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection, 23 July 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Discovery Channel - NASA's Greatest Missions [4 DVD] (DVD)
This is a brilliant six episode series documenting the exploration of space by NASA, portrayed entirely through archive film. They cover the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Shuttle missions up to and including the first half of the IIS assembly.

The highlights of this DVD collection are not the Discovery Channel documentaries themselves (despite them being very well put together), but the original 1960s NASA films on disc four. Space nostalgia fans will be whooping for joy at their inclusion.

My only complaints about this collection is that the documentaries: 1. are entirely American focused, with little discussion of the parallel Russian missions. 2. have no subtitles at all, which was somewhat annoying when the background music began to drown out the narration.

I recommend that you watch this alongside the docu/drama series From the Earth to the Moon (Tom Hanks HBO Signature Edition) [DVD], and the film The Right Stuff (Special Edition) [DVD] [1984].
