Hi, this is one of those personal opinion, revelation threads that some hate and some dig, but I feel I have an idea worth starting a topic for.

I own the 5-disc DVD collection, NASA - 50 years of Space Exploration. I've also had a lifelong interest in space exploration and have read as much as I could find and understand. While watching the footage of the 'moon landings' in this set, I was struck but a few things. (Does anyone else own this set? It was widely available in Canada. 10+ hours, lots of great footage.)

The 'moon landing' segment was suspiciously short, showing only an obviously sped up astronaut hopping for a minute or so, and some stills...which looked so much like studio shots I laughed. Also, I realized that the footprint shots clearly couldn't be taken on the moon surface they describe in the video! I suddenly had no more doubts about that particular part of the story. However, the footage from lunar orbit is very amazing, as are the great clips from Earth orbit. I learned a lot from the films - it's just frustrating not getting the whole story. Perhaps anyone else who has this DVD collection can tell me if I am missing something. It was so obvious to me, and the way it's presented, made me think the compilers of the set were revealing something significant in a very subtle way.

I am just left wondering: did man got so close...but was not able to leave orbit? Did the secret space program try and fail? Opens up interesting speculation for me, and I can see why NASA would be frightened by those questions...

My apologies if this is in the wrong forum. Staff, feel free to move it.

Does it cover every Mission.

So there are different things covered, like what you mentioned is
never covered again in repeated missions.

For instance a mission with a rover, the first thing you see is
getting out the rover.
