The video lays nothing to rest, it's a complete fake. It's a lie. Not true. False. Made up. Need me to be any clearer?

Kubrick has been superimposed into videos that he didn't originally appear in.

... So I don't know how you get "US chances of succeeding were maybe only 50/50 or 60/40 at best."

They were very, very lucky. The success rate at first was barely better than the Soviets'. Just look at the old films of those flimsy handmade contraptions. One tiny little thing goes wrong and kablooie. Were they not locked in a crazy Cold War and needed the program to help build our missile defense system, it would have have been an even more reckless and foolhardy thing to try.

I get the impression that even if the Soviets only had a rocket system that gave them a 40/60 chance of getting people to the Moon and back they would have risked it. ....


The designated prime pilot, Aleksey Leonov, shared your suspicion, and in 1989 told our film crew, "I'm only glad I never had to bet my life on that system."
