Beyond the Moon: Failure Is Not an Option

Full Episode: Beyond the Moon: Failure Is Not an Option


Full Episode Summary

In 1961, President Kennedy set a goal for the nation: beat the Russians to the Moon and do it within the decade. In '69, NASA met that goal--but no one defined what should happen next. As a growing number of political, social, and economic problems vie for the nation's attention and money, Congress, Presidents, and the public aren't certain if manned space flight is really worth the cost and risk. But for legendary flight director Gene Kranz and the men and women of Mission Control, there's no doubt. Despite waning public support and shrinking budgets, they still have a job to do with no room for error.moreless
