Man on the moon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Man on the moon," a collection of films from CBS and NASA, highlights the nine-day Apollo 11 mission and features an overview of the manned space program, both before and after Neil Armstrong's historic walk on the moon. In "Houston, we have a problem," the drama of the Apollo 13 mission follows what had begun as a routine flight that abruptly changed when an explosion aboard the command module rocked the ship nearly 200,000 miles from the earth. The heroic efforts of the team at Mission Control, as well as those of astronauts Jim Lovell, John Swigert and Fred Haise, are captured in a brilliant demonstration of human capability under almost unbearable stress. "Space shuttle" features the launch and maiden voyage of the orbiter Columbia on April 12, 1981, with astronauts John Young and Robert Crippen aboard. The voyage heralded a new era in space exploration. Although the mission was a complete success, descriptions of the solid fuel rockets used to propel the shuttle into orbit and the heat dissipating tiles that protect the orbiter upon re-entry add an eerie reminder of what would happen in light of subsequent system failures
