"I found it very interesting in that there is no narration. Good film sequences… great reminders of the people and things that led to the first landing. Good job."

- Russell L. "Rusty" Schweickart, Apollo 9 Astronaut, July 7, 2009

"Letting the people, events, and images speak for themselves brings an unmatched authenticity to this remarkable chapter in human exploration. Very well done."

-Neil deGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and Frederick P. Rose Director, Hayden Planetarium, American Museum of Natural History, New York City, July 26, 2009

"The Apollo Years" reviews all the Apollo missions, back-to-back.

The Apollo Years reviews the Apollo Program Missions 1 through 17.

This is an historical document and documentary.

Using only archival film and the authentic communications between the Apollo capsules and Mission Control.

There is no narration; there is some music by The Cud Chewing Cows (Music Band), no fancy Graphics, nothing but what happened, what was said, when and by whom.


-All the Apollo Astronauts, All the Apollo Missions

-President Kennedy, President Johnson and President Nixon

-And a celebratory performance by Frank Sinatra

-Original Music by The Cud Chewing Cows

"For those of us who witnessed the Apollo program it brings back memories and reminds us how things have changed (some unrelated to the main theme, like flight controlers sitting at their duty stations smoking!). For younger viewers it will serve as a good entrée for discovering and understanding the early space program."

- Alan W. Harris, Space scientist with North American Rockwell (builder of the Command Module) during the time of Apollo, later with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), July 8, 2009

About this Photo

Astronaut Group 3 was the third group of astronauts selected by NASA. Their selection was announced in October 1963. Fourteen astronauts made up Group 3. Four died in training accidents before they could fly in space. All of the surviving ten flew in the Apollo program; five also flew Gemini missions. Aldrin, Bean, Cernan and Scott walked on the Moon. They are the only ones of the first 19 NASA astronaut groups to have no members at all fly on the Space Shuttle.
