Thoughts on One More Orbit
Final Thoughts – One More Orbit is a documentary that will put focus on the vision of trying to break world records, using the memory of one of the greatest achievements of all time Apollo 11 mission as the motivation to target this mission. The plan is set out, with moments to look at each locations historical impact of the Apollo 11 mission, being part, we have the international crew, proving that working together will be the reason any of this could be achieved, not one country should get the credit for what was trying to be achieved. The biggest problem with the mission, is the fact that everything runs smoothly, it is a record that doesn’t have any major peril moments, it is just a routine attempt to break a record, which isn’t going to be the most thrilling thing we could expect to see. We can’t take away the record itself, it is an incredible achievement, that we could have all watched along during the attempt and is the movie that spends the most time in Mauritius that I have ever seen.
