Retro Saturday: The Big Challenge

Click the arrow to watch “The Big Challenge” on YouTube.

In 1966, NASA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a documentary called The Big Challenge, about the design and construction of the Kennedy Space Center. Produced by the Technicolor Corporation of America, this 27-minute film is filled with rare footage of the space center's early days as it was being built.

I obtained a copy from NASA's media relations. I've seen a fully restored color original, but the individual who has it wanted to charge me $400 for a copy, so this is the best version publicly available.

Happy Retro Saturday.
