ABOUT:

Please join us for a post-film Q&A with producer/author Rick Houston.

At the heart of the remarkable Apollo space program was the team who worked at NASA’s Mission Control. They were born against a backdrop of economic turmoil and global conflict. Some stemmed from a rural lifestyle unchanged since the 19th century, while others grew up in a gritty, blue-collar America laden with mines and smoke stacks. They ranged from students straight out of college, to soldiers toughened by military service. Yet, from such ordinary beginnings, an extraordinary team was born, and their decade of achievement is one that will always soar through history. They set out on what John F. Kennedy called “the most hazardous, dangerous, and greatest adventure upon which mankind has ever embarked.” Guided by the team’s testimony and the supporting voices of Apollo astronauts and modern NASA flight directors, MISSION CONTROL explores everything from the faltering start of the program to the Mercury and Gemini missions, and the tragedy of the Apollo 1 fire to the glories of the moon landings.
