Description by OLDIES.com:
In Volume 2 we take up the history of Apollo with the voyage of Apollo 12, followed by the jinxed mission of Apollo 13, the last lunar mission of Apollo 17, and the Apollo-Soyuz link-up, all in stunningly detailed cinematography.
Chapter 1: Apollo 12-Pinpoint for Science. Man's second journey to the moon included setting up Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) for the return of scientific data and the inspection of Surveyor 3, an unmanned spacecraft that landed on the moon in 1967.
Chapter 2: Apollo 13-"Houston We Have a Problem." This mission changed from being a routine lunar landing to a desperate fight for survival for astronauts James A. Lovell, John L. Swigert, and Fred W. Haise.
Chapter 3: Apollo 14-Mission to Fra Mauro. Includes the early problem of docking the Command and Lunar Modules, another landing on the moon, the climbing of Cone Crater, and scenes in the NASA JSC's Lunar Receiving Laboratory.
Chapter 4: Apollo 15-In the Mountains of the Moon. Features exciting footage of stand-up extravehicular activity, three traverses of the lunar surface, and film taken from the Lunar Rover.
Chapter 5: Apollo 16-"Nothing So Hidden..." Shows the landing and the three lunar traverses in the highland region of the moon, near the crater Descartes.
Chapter 6: Apollo 17-On the Shoulders of Giants. This chapter shows the final lunar landing mission in the Apollo Program.
Chapter 7: Mission of Apollo-Soyuz. This mission on July 15, 1975 was a precedentsetting event in the sphere of international manned space flight.
