Small steps

David's right: this is quite a good film on the Apollo missions. Not least for the way in which it highlights the ordinariness of much of this amazing stuff.

It's like Regular Joes in Space.

The video footage from episode 5 on Apollo 15 is probably the most spectacular, even if it wasn't the first landing.

And the reading of the presidential message that was prepared should Apollo 11 not make it back (by one of the men on the mission) is also a pretty powerful moment.

To infinity and beyond...
