Movie: Mission Control

Postby SpaceCanada » Wed Sep 06, 2017 12:34 am

Anyone here watched it yet? It is on Netflix and Apple iTunes, and probably some other video hosting/streaming sites as well.

I am about half-way through and enjoying it immensely. I love seeing the faces of various engineers and MCC personnel and hearing their stories. I cannot wait to finish watching it tomorrow.

Just saw it listed on Netflix last night. I saved it and plan on watching it when I have some time.

I watched it this weekend and really enjoyed it. It showed how much the missions depend on the men and women in Mission Control and how important they were in the early days of the space program. Great to see and hear from so many of them who you usually only get a little bit from in most space documentaries.

Read the book version "Go, Flight". This was very interesting and I highly recommend it.
