America In Outer Space, First Moon Landing & Shuttle Flight

New on ChiTownView 1/19/2014

As the weather around Chicago is pretty miserable in January at ChiTownView we turn our electronic eye on subjects out of town. Or in this case we will take our viewers out off this planet into out space. Today we present a pair of videos from the files of N.A.S.A. from the golden age of the US space program.

The Eagle Has Landed: The Flight of Apollo 11 (1969)
This film tells the story of the historic first landing of men on the Moon in July, 1969. It depicts the principal highlight events of the mission from launching through post-recovery activities of Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, and Michael Collins. Through television, motion picture and still photography, the film provides an "eye-witness" perspective of the Apollo 11 mission.

Space Shuttle: A Remarkable Flying Machine (1981)
This film documents the first historic flight of a space shuttle, the U.S. spacecraft Columbia, which launched on April 12, 1981. The footage highlights liftoff, the onboard activities of astronauts John Young and Robert Crippen, as well as the landing in Rogers Dry Lake bed in California.
