Storyline

APOLLO 11: THE UNTOLD STORY aka FIRST ON THE MOON: THE UNTOLD STORY One-Hour Special for Discovery Science Channel / five When Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon in July 1969, Apollo 11 was hailed as the supreme triumph of American technology. But behind the flag waving lies a very different story: the untold account of how close the mission came to disaster. Now, nearly forty years later, men on that mission reveal what really happened on the first voyage to the moon. It's a tale of how primitive computer technology, coupled with human errors and mechanical failures, nearly caused the tragic loss of the crew. Written by Atlantic Productions

Overly sensational
11 September 2011 | by artdog-157-548600See all my reviews

I have to agree with some other comments. This doc is overly sensational. Some of the discussions about the dangers such as z particles and the dangers of launch make it sound as if Apollo 11 was the first mission.

In fact, previous missions had been flown using the Saturn V and even a flight to the moon with an orbit. Surely all those dangers had been known before Apollo 11.

The UFO thing is intriguing but I doubt it has been covered up. Mr. Aldrin has spoken about it many times. He merely takes the attitude that most scientists and engineers would take, we have no idea what it was and no way of knowing so let's talk about something more interesting.

This doc is only slightly above the films and books claiming the whole thing was faked.
