Retro Saturday: Moon Mission

This week's Retro Saturday is an undated film produced by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center simply titled, “Moon Mission.”

The film appears to have been produced during the Kennedy Administration circa 1963, and features an introduction by Wernher von Braun, who at the time was MSFC's director and chief architect of the Saturn V moon rocket.

Because this is still early in the Apollo program, some concepts familiar to today's audiences were yet to be finalized at the time of this film. At the end, it shows the Apollo crew vehicle landing in the desert, not in the ocean.
