The story behind the creation of, landing, and return of Apollo is fascinating. The calculations for a spacecraft lift off from the moon are intriguing - I had never considered how the ship would get off the moon without the thousands of gasoline needed for takeoff. Nor how the plane would leave the surface of the moon. The recorded voices of the astronauts are touches of history that propel the otherwise snoozer story.
The comical astronauts and Houston's radioed responses - in outer space - were enthralling and merited several re-winds and re-listens.
