The availability of so many footages in a package makes this edition a “must have” . However, the edition does not really take advantage of the blu ray format. Too many files are simply pasted on the disc, and frankly enough, there is no bonus havio=ng a Blu ray vs. a DVD, or in some cases a VHS. Only the last shutle missions are to what looks HD standard, and are really up to what one can expect in such a format. Digital restoration /interpolation is what I expected and I was therefore very disappointed. On the other hand , it is still worth having so much in such a small volume. Buy it, but do not expect too much HQ from the first 3 discs

I don’t consider myself a space junkie or anything like that, but I did get interested in the subject somewhat by watching the movie “Apollo 13″. I wish more time had been devoted to the selection process of the original 7 astronauts and their training process. I know John Glenn and Neil Armstrong did say it was pretty rigorous. I wish more detail had been given. I think the extra features are rather boring, the movies put together by NASA in the late 50s or early 60s. I would have much rather seen more footage of the astronauts on their moon walks than is shown, have that as the extras.

I have only watched the shuttle part of this program once or twice, so maybe I’m remembering this wrong. If I’m not remembering wrong, something Gene Kranz said about the launch of Challenger back in 1986 is pretty upsetting and made me angry. I swear he basically said he saw no reason to delay the launch of Challenger. I think other knowledgeable people feared the disaster and tragedy that did happen that cold Florida morning, so Kranz’s statement angered me.

A good rememberance of past space flight.

I don’t know if it is worth $40.00 for Blue ray. DVD would be fine.

Will probably watch it again though.

The documentary was put together very well, but most of the video of missions are in standard definition. Wish they would have put the entire thing out in high-def otherwise the dvd version is just as good.

All in all though it is a great buy; very educational and keeps you interested in watching the entire series. Easily one of the better videos to buy; maybe not a must buy blu-ray, i’d recommend just getting the dvd version.
