Trivia

The television interview of Alan Shepard was conducted by Jules Bergman, who the actor playing him ( Andrew Rubin ) greatly resembles. Bergman was the science editor for ABC News, appointed to that position in 1961, concurrent with the arrival of the Mercury and Russian Vostok programs. He continued in this capacity through the Gemini and Apollo programs, as well as Skylab and the Apollo/Soyuz mission. Among other things, in order to more closely identify with the astronauts, he also participated in their training programs.

In the second episode of this miniseries, "Apollo I", senator Mondale of the Aeronautical and Space Sciences Committee is described as having a memo from Apollo program director Sam Phillips that was critical of North American Aviation for their quality control (a memo that was not pertinent to the Apollo I fire). It was Jules Bergman who turned up this memo.

Rubin's appearance in From the Earth to the Moon was his last performance. See more »

Alternate Versions

Warner Brothers remastered the entire miniseries for re-release in time for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. It was enhanced to improve picture and sound quality, more saturated, and completely true widescreen. This new version was released both in Blu-Ray format and for streaming services. See more »
