SunWest Media Group

 The film, Dreams Of Flight: To The Moon (Volume IV), chronicles the fast paced N.A.S.A. administered space race with the U.S.S.R. that ocurred beginning in the late 1950s and ended in many ways with the successful Apollo 11 mission to the moon.  This film documentary begins with a brief review of science fiction visionaries like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells who were authors that helped pave the way for our subsequent adventures in space.  Next the viewer will see how early rocket pioneers like Robert Goddard and Herman Oberth began turning science fiction into science fact.  The viewer will be introduced to rocket scientist Wernher von Braun who was the N.A.S.A. administrator whose leadership would eventually take America to the moon in July, 1969.  Perspective to this unbridled space race is added by following the Russians as they successfully send the first satellite into orbit and then follow that up by launching Yuri Gagarin, the first man into space.  The viewer will be there as America's first seven astronauts became the new heros of the 20th century.  America's first seven astornauts included: 1) Alan Shepard; 2) John Glenn; 3) Gus Grissom; 4) Wally Schirra; 5) Gordon Cooper; 6) Scott Carpenter and 7) Deke Slayton.  Candid interviews with a number of surviving former Mercury astronauts adds perspective as well.  Follow the drama of the space race from Project Mercury and Gemini up through the Apollo space program.  This video documentary culminates with the tension filled Apollo 11 mission which took astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins to the moon and back in the summer of 1969.  The film, "Dreams Of Flight: To The Moon" is sure to appeal to anyone interested in aviation and spaceflight history.  Full screen in color.  Released in 1994.  Runtime 50 minutes.
