[edit] Information

At 25, Gene Kranz was a former Air Force pilot working as a flight test engineer for McDonnell Douglas. At 26, he quit his job to work for the fledgling space agency NASA. For the next 34 years, Kranz had the best view of the space program possible without leaving the ground, serving as primary flight director throughout the Gemini and Apollo programs.

Based on Kranz's acclaimed memoir of the same name, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION offers an extraordinary behind-the-scenes look at the early years of NASA, highlighting defining moments such as John Glenn's historic first flight, the moon landing, and the "successful failure" of Apollo 13. Kranz and other NASA veterans recall the "whiz kid" atmosphere in the beginning, where people in their twenties were put in positions of enormous responsibility, and show how the extraordinary exploits of the astronauts were supported by equally impressive work on the ground.

Narrated by actor Scott Glenn (The Right Stuff), FALURE IS NOT AN OPTION is a gripping account that adds an important new perspective to the story of the Space Race.
