Apollo Saturn V Center Introductory Video

Millions of people held their breath while a single man stepped onto the moon's surface - a journey that began just a short distance from where the Apollo/Saturn V Center stands today. It is located within NASA's huge complex in Orlando, Florida.

Before you proceed to the huge area that is Apollo/Saturn V Center where it contains a tribute to the Apollo astronauts and the machines that got them there and brought them home safely, you will get to watch video of how NASA's space program came to be. From the days when the Russians were the first to venture into space to the Americans doing the same thing and after some sad accidents were finally able to accomplish what they wanted.

I learned quite a lot from this video including the fact that a prior mission before Neil Armstrong was even able to land on the moon ended up in a disaster. All astronauts perished during that time and the Americans made sure that it would not happen again. The video presentation had its sad moments but also had its victorious ones. Watch attentively, you will definitely learn a lot of things regarding how their space program came to be.
