I agree but my version was given the Hollywood treatment to add some suspense-filled drama to the narrative.
Not that there was any shortage of drama during the Apollo program!
Apollo 11: Error 1201, 1202. Computer overload warning due to malfunctioning radar-based ground-ranging system … all while descending to the lunar surface for the very first manned landing.
And of course who can forget Apollo 12’s classic “Try SCE to AUX.” Lightning strike during the Saturn V’s initial ascent negatively impacted electrical systems. The linked article does a great job of recounting this white-knuckle moment … and demonstrates the qualities needed in the personnel responsible for trouble-shooting mission and time-critical problems.
… and here we are, flustered by stuff that just makes our lives more comfy.
