The 33rd Space Symposium will feature a special, by-invitation only, viewing of Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo, thanks to the sponsorship of Griffin Communications Group.
Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo, a new feature-length documentary from Haviland Digital, is the definitive film about the team that worked in NASA’s Mission Control to put humans on the Moon. Consisting of the testimonies of those working in Mission Control and the Apollo astronauts whose lives depended on their decisions, the film covers the fragile and sometimes tragic beginnings of the American space program, the successful lunar missions of Apollo 8 and Apollo 11, and the true story behind Apollo 13.
Filled with heart and emotion, this highly anticipated film touches upon the development of extraordinary technology, leadership, teamwork, facing great challenges, advances in diversity, and the stories of people from ordinary backgrounds coming together as a team to do something exceptional. Mission Control was made by much of the same team that produced the award-winning film The Last Man on the Moon, which opened to excellent reviews and reached number one on the documentary charts on iTunes in both the U.S. and U.K., scoring 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.
