From the Earth to the Moon - "Spider"




Today on Far Future Horizons we present the fifth episode of the acclaimed twelve-part HBO television miniseries From the Earth to the Moon - "Spider".


Apollo 9 Mission Patch


This instalment of From the Earth to the Moon returns to 1961, and NASA engineer John Houbolt's lonely fight to convince management that the easiest way to land men on the Moon will be to use a separate landing craft. It then traces the design and development of the Lunar Module by a team led by Grumman engineer Tom Kelly. 





Covers the selection and training of the first crew selected to fly it, Jim McDivitt and Rusty Schweickart (along with Command Module pilot David Scott), and culminates with their first flight of Spider in Earth orbit on Apollo 9. The Apollo 10 lunar "dress rehearsal" is briefly mentioned.
