Kansas Cosmosphere release

The Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center's replica Lunar Module cockpit and Apollo Command Module simulator will provide the backdrop for an upcoming episode of The History Channel's Man, Moment, Machine. A crew from Edelman Productions will arrive at the Cosmosphere on Wednesday, April 19, 2006, to begin shooting its dramatic reenactment scenes for an episode on the Apollo 13 mission.

Man, Moment, Machine is a television series that examines how a dynamic leader, technological innovations, and an important moment in time intersected and led to historically-noted achievements.

"We're pleased to assist The History Channel in another project that depicts the ingenuity of space exploration and the people behind America's successful space program," said Jim Remar, senior vice president.

The taping of the episode marks the second time in the past year that the Cosmosphere has worked with The History Channel. Last summer, video crews from the network documented the Cosmosphere's restoration work on the Bendix Mobility Test Vehicle, then aired the footage in an August 2005 episode of the Save Our History television series.

The date the "Apollo 13" episode will air has not been determined.

Can we assume that one of those to be interviewed will be a well-known cS poster that happens to have played a very significant part in that mission?

Another two Apollo 13 documentaries? Interesting. I'm always happy to see more interviews, although I'd be pleasantly surprised if either documentary approached the quality of "Apollo 13: To the Edge and Back". That one got the balance of attention between astronauts and mission controllers just about right, in my opinion.

EDIT: Do you happen to know who else is being interviewed?
