Nothing will recapture those days. Thanks for this, Steven. Incredible.
I am in awe of what it took to pull off the moon missions.
I respect the astronauts a lot for putting their lives on the line but this site just shows a glimpse of all the people involved at Houston and across the country who got them there safely and returned them back to Earth.
I would love to see an Apollo 13 version of this also.
