This special anniversary 2 DVD set Man on the Moon commemorates 40 years of space exploration by America's NASA astronauts from the first Mercury missions that successfully launched John Glenn into orbit to the moon landing Skylab the shuttle and beyond. Man on the Moon features real-time reporting by Walter Cronkite and CBS News as NASA reached into space to put a man on the moon. From pre-launch preparations to lift off and the culminating achievement of Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin landing on the Sea of Tranquility Cronkite and his team give you a front-row seat to history. The Apollo program went on to several more moon landings but none was more dramatic than the Apollo 13 mission. The words Houston we have a problem.... have become part of the language since an explosion onboard the Lunar Command Module rocketed the astronauts 200000 miles into space. Again Walter Cronkite is there as ground control and the astronauts struggle heroically and successfully to return the craft to safety.
Actor: Walter Cronkite
