Synopsis by Scott Albright
Take a rocket ride through history and into the future with The Apollo Legacy, a fascinating documentary from CNN. This video retrospective covers the historic Apollo missions one by one, from the tragic loss of Grissom, White, and Chaffee on AS-204, later designated as Apollo 1, to Commander James Lovell's infamous words, "Houston, we have a problem," spoken from a crippled Apollo 13, to the finality of 1972's Apollo 17 mission -- the last to land men on the moon. The documentary also examines the impact these missions have had on the future of space exploration, which is likely to include inhabiting permanent space stations and visiting Mars.
