Customer Reviews

Don't be fooled

This is all public domain. I'm a little shocked someone has put a price tag on what everyone owns a piece of. Sorry iTunes, you're great, but this should simply be a podcast.

Apollo Missions recording

Amazing to hear the actual conversations… The “Eagle has landed…” or “Houston, we have a problem…” or “One small step for man…”. The history, the view from the crew, the emotions from the crew and ground is incredible!

The best, cheapest, and easiest opportunity to obtain Apollo audio recordings

Speaking as someone who has used alternative sources of NASA recordings to make my own set of space program clips for my iPod, I can say that this iTunes album is the best and easiest chance that most people are going to have to obtain these recordings. As for the fact that these are not being offered for free, many people fail to understand that, just because information is public domain, the compilation, storage, and packaging of that information for the public is NOT free. Take U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maps, for example. The information in those maps is public domain, but to obtain, store, offer, and transfer those data to the public costs money--no one expects that USGS maps, even electronic copies for handheld GPS receivers, are supposed to be simply given away by merchants or even by the USGS itself, for the reasons already given. It's the same for these Apollo recordings. Personally, I've gone ahead and downloaded this album because it still had a lot of audio tracks that I wanted, and it was easier, faster, and cheaper for me to get them this way than to tediously work through the NASA archives. As for the recordings themselves, they are terrific, especially the Earth-shattering, blasting roar of the five colossal F1 engines of the Saturn V when they ignite and then ramp up to full power just before liftoff!
