Moonshot (TV Movie 2009). 1h 30m | TV-PG

“This was an OK production of the now-familiar story of the first manned landing on the moon. There are better versions, but this one was pretty good, Iu0026#39;d say about seven stars out of ten.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHOWEVER, Iu0026#39;m giving it a ten-star rating simply to counter the 3-star rating given by a dumbass who didnu0026#39;t know what the hell he was talking about. David Byrne got all bent out of shape about what he perceived as lazy and uninformed set design: u0026quot;The final straw was when about half way thought the film, green 7-segment LED digital displays were in view. They were not even invented in 1969 and thus were not used in Apollo 11. I had to switch it off at that point – I had enough. u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSorry to burst your indignant bubble Davie, but the Apollo DSKY (Display Keyboard) computer interface used aboard the Apollo Command Module did indeed have a green LED numerical readout, as even a cursory look on Google would reveal. No, LEDs were not in wide use in 1969, but you can chalk that up as yet another piece of cutting-edge technology developed or first used by the U.S. space program.”
