"Mission Control -- The Unsung Heroes of Apollo" -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVDTSfyFTTY
Fantastic footage and interviews with the Mission Control crew, 50 years later!!
: The quote that this is “the most important timepiece in the
: history of human spaceflight’ is not from some biased Heuer
: nut (ie not from me) but from the BBC Podcast “13 Minutes to
: the Moon”. The podcast is a 13 part very detailed analysis of
: the moon landing, focusing heavily on the problems faced just
: before the landing - and hence leading to this conclusion.
: I would highly, highly recommend the podcast to anyone interested
: in spaceflight. There are in depth interviews with the many
: critical - but unsung - heroes of the Apollo program (including
: Michael Collins :-)
: It’s really gripping and I learned a lot of new in depth info.
: And don’t miss the end of episode 9 where Bob Carlton tells a
: funny story of the journey of the stopwatch to the Smithsonian.
