Today's video: Going to the Moon

NASA Animation: Landing on the Moon

Editor's note: Curiously, this video shows every engine burn that is reqired in the process of getting astronauts and their hardware to the Moon using Ares 1, Ares V, Orion, Altair, EDS - except the use of a burn of the Orion's Serivce Module to place Orion into Earth orbit. Did they leave this out for artistic reasons - or is NASA just shy about admitting that the Service Module functions as a third stage on Ares 1?
