Originally aired on HBO and directed by Apollo 13 star and space enthusiast Tom Hanks, among others, From the Earth to the Moon explores the ups and downs of space travel, beginning with President Kennedy's famous speech before Congress on May 25, 1961, and chronicling the journey to putting the first man on the moon.
This highly acclaimed, Emmy-nominated, 12-episode series is available in a six-tape VHS set and a four-disc DVD set.
When I saw this miniseries I thought about getting it because I will watch anything that has to do with space. But when I saw it was made by Tom Hanks and Ron Howard I said "I am definitely getting this!"
I got it and love it! It really makes you feel like you were there and makes you wish you saw the real thing.
