Editorial Reviews

· In Volume 2 we take up the history of Apollo with the voyage of Apollo 12, followed by the jinxed mission of Apollo 13, the last lunar mission of Apollo 17, and the Apollo-Soyuz link-up, all in stunningly detailed cinematography.

· Chapter 1: Apollo 12--Pinpoint for Science. Man's second journey to the moon included setting up Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) for the return of scientific data and the inspection of Surveyor 3, an unmanned spacecraft that landed on the moon in 1967.

· Chapter 2: Apollo 13--"Houston We Have a Problem." This mission changed from being a routine lunar landing to a desperate fight for survival for astronauts James A. Lovell, John L. Swigert, and Fred W. Haise.

· Chapter 3: Apollo 14--Mission to Fra Mauro. Includes the early problem of docking the Command and Lunar Modules, another landing on the moon, the climbing of Cone Crater, and scenes in the NASA JSC's Lunar Receiving Laboratory.

· Chapter 4: Apollo 15--In the Mountains of the Moon. Features exciting footage of stand-up extravehicular activity, three traverses of the lunar surface, and film taken from the Lunar Rover.

· Chapter 5: Apollo 16--"Nothing So Hidden..." Shows the landing and the three lunar traverses in the highland region of the moon, near the crater Descartes.

· Chapter 6: Apollo 17--On the Shoulders of Giants. This chapter shows the final lunar landing mission in the Apollo Program.

· Chapter 7: Mission of Apollo-Soyuz. This mission on July 15, 1975 was a precedent-setting event in the sphere of international manned space flight.

· Approx running time: 2 hours, 45 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, something worth buying at a low price... October 26, 2007
Verified Purchase
The second incarnation of this 2 parter is far better than its first part.
It offers far sharper images, better material altogether and decent sound. What about that?

For someone who does not want to dish up about 60 dollars per Mission, just as in the case of the Spacecraft Collection DVDs (although they all come in at least 3 to 6 DVDs each and are crammed to the rim with information), this is a viable option to get the most interesting Lunar Missions after Apollo 11, on July 20, 1969.

Although called "Huston, We Have a Problem", the Apollo 13 mission is only part of this collection, and not predominant. Every Mission, from Apollo 12 to Apollo 17, receive a concise, but very informative treatment in a 30 minute documentary each, amounting to a slightly over three hour DVD exploration of our satellite.

This indeed, for a product of this sort and at such a price, is money well spent.

I gave it four stars not for its contents, but rather because very little effort was made to improve some of the quality of the image which at times, is very, very grainy, resulting in a spotted screen.
Even for footage that is over thirty years old, this is not a good reason to release it as it was.

Today's techniques are so sophisticated that you could correct any signal and any disturbances occurring at the time the images were taken and transform them into updated and clean versions of the very same.

But instead, the Company producing these DVDs does not seem to have either the means, nor the interest in doing so.

In short, if you are interested in a bunch of historic images of the period "as they were", also to get the original experience of the time, then this is a product for you.

* Apollo 15: In the Mountains of the Moon (lunar exploration extends its reach using the lunar rover)
* Apollo 16: Nothing So Hidden (an exploration of the lunar highlands)
* On the Shoulders of Giants (Apollo 17, the last and longest lunar landing, brings the first scientist to the moon)
