    Goof (factual errors): In the "1968" chapter, we see a TV reporter broadcasting with a massive picture-window view of the Saturn 5, and then feeling the shock wave from engine ignition just before the window falls in. The view is from 1/4 mile SE of pad 39A, a dangerously close point for anyone. The press site is 3.1 miles west of the pad. Also, the incident happened to Walter Cronkite at the Apollo 4 launch, Nov. 9, 1967. The launch depicted here (coinciding with the King assassination) is Apollo 6 on Apr. 4, 1968.
