Is Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo on Netflix United States?

Yes! Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo (2017) is available on Netflix United States.

At the heart of the Apollo program was the special team in Mission Control who put a man on the moon and helped create the future. Combining archive footage with present-day interviews, this documentary explores how Apollo's mission control helped change the course of history. At the heart of the Apollo space program and a remarkable decade of achievement was the team who worked in Mission Control.They were born against a backdrop of economic turmoil and global conflict. Some came from a rural lifestyle little changed from the 19th century. Others grew up in a gritty, blue-collar America of mines and smoke stacks. They ranged from kids straight out of college to those toughened by military service. But from such ordinary beginnings, an extraordinary team was born. They were setting out on what JFK called: “The most hazardous, dangerous, and greatest adventure upon which mankind has ever embarked” and through their testimony – and the supporting voices of Apollo astronauts and modern NASA flight directors – the film takes us from the faltering start of the program through the Mercury and Gemini missions, the tragedy of the Apollo 1 fire to the glories of the Moon landings.
