Gene Cernan was the last man (for the time being) to set foot on the moon. A new 99-minute documentary, The Last Man on the Moon, tells his story. Personally, I’m very excited to see it when it is released. For now, there’s a tantalising trailer. (Hat Tip IO9)
Another promising documentary is Chris Purcell’s Ode to Concorde. In some ways Concorde was Britain and France’s space program – it certainly cost a lot! Whereas 12 people walked on the moon, many thousands got to fly supersonic on Concorde. I managed to do it three times, twice on Air France and once on British Airways and I remember seeing the last three planes fly into Heathrow from the roof of my Chelsea flat. Again, there’s a trailer and the producers are crowdfunding to complete the project.
