Nasa - The Big Missions (DVD)
The most detailed and exciting account of NASA and America's space programme ever produced.
Over seven hours long, it includes official NASA film records of all the key American space missions from the earliest satellite launches through to the Moon landings and the development and flights of the Space Shuttle much of which has never been made available on DVD before.
Now you can witness - with the best available footage - all the historic milestones in NASA’s space programme: missions such as Freedom 7, when Alan Shepard became the first American in space and Friendship 7 when John Glenn orbited the earth, the launch of the Telstar and Early Bird satellites and the big Gemini missions including Gemini 4 (when Ed White became the first man to walk in space) and Geminis 6 and 7 performing the first docking in space.
The Apollo moon missions are covered in depth. Missions featured include Apollo 7 - the first 3 man mission to space - Apollo 11 when Armstrong and Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon, the Apollo 13 disaster and Apollo 17 - the last manned mission to the moon.
The official NASA film records of many other missions are also featured – including the 2005 Discovery mission -, along with numerous previously unseen Movietone reports punctuating the US reports to show how the NASA missions were viewed in the UK.
