The clip historical background from Apollo 13 (1995) with Kevin Bacon

We have the crew crossing gantry for capsule ingress.
Roger that.
Inspired by the late President Kennedy,
in only seven years, America has risen to the challenge of what he called...
"the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure...
on which man has ever embarked. "
After trailing the Russians for years with our manned space program,
We got a short!
And after that sudden, horrible fire...
on the launchpad during a routine test...
that killed astronauts Gus Grissom...
Fire in the cockpit!
Ed White and Roger Chaffee...
Get us outta here!
There were serious doubts that we could beat the Russians to the moon.
But tonight, a mere 18 months after the tragedy of Apollo 1...
the entire world watched in awe as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin...
landed on the moon.
The big news came just a moment ago.
Mission Control gave the spacecraft permission...
to go for the extravehicular activity...
that is, for the walk on the moon...
far earlier than anticipated, 9:00 p. m. Eastern Daylight Time.
Important thing when you're penetrating the lunar module is your attitude...
