In the Shadow of the Moon

Just watched this excellent documentary:

It’s very good and features tons of interviews with astronauts and some pretty good archival footage. We watched the DVD but I see the Blu-Ray is actually a couple of bucks cheaper at Amazon.

If you check this out, be sure to watch the additional scenes on the special features menu. Lots of great stuff and well worth the time.


  1. It’s really too bad that when asked about going back to the Moon, El Presidente simply stated “We’ve already been there.”
    I can’t stand it when one person decides to cut a program that is bigger than any one administration. Does he not realize that it costs exponentially more to re-start a program than to keep one going? I am referring to his decision to stop the shuttle replacement plan and end all prospects for moon travel for the foreseeable future.

  2. Super cauldera, BIG space rock, or human pooulation (aka rats in a cage) reaches critical mass and descends to it’ s natural state…………..some may wish we had developed a viable interplanetary drive (chemical rockets aren’t it) and off shored our survival base, instead of over the top social spending to equalise justice. LOL!

  3. Africans must travel to the moon to investigate what developed nations have been doing in outer space, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said Saturday (Oct 30th).

    “The Americans have gone to the moon. And the Russians. The Chinese and Indians will go there soon. Africans are the only ones who are stuck here,” Museveni said, addressing a meeting of the Uganda Law Society in Entebbe.


    The exaulted Ugandan dude forgot to add Alice Kramden to his list of moon travelers.

    Ralph sent her there many times in the 1960’s!
