  • An excellent documentary on the lunar rover can be viewed on the series, “Moon Machines.”

    • Tom,
      Love that series. Did you know it was produced by the same folks who brought us: “In the Shadow of the Moon” ? Even the style of the series emulates ITSOTM. Great stuff.

      • Hi, Jason:

        Didn’t know that bot ITSOTM was a great. Both are great visual additions to the many fine books written on the Apollo program. Thanks!

        • Leonidas

          Trully excellent documentaries all, but my vote would have to go towards ‘Moonwalk One’ and ‘For All Mankind’!

          Also, did you know that there’s an Apollo 11 documentary called ‘Moonscape’, produced just last year, and exclusively funded by space enthusiasts? I found out about it quite by accident on Vimeo.

  • Must correct that last post…

    First sentence:

    Didn’t know that but ITSOTM was great.
