Wow this is amazing! Thank you. I was lucky enough to see Aurora 7 at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. This brings a wonderful perspective to that.

The footage was AI upscaled  (Topaz AI) on some segments, besides the usual color correction. Ambient audio was recreated based on historical elements. Sequences are shown in proper mission context as much as possible.

Historical narration (from mission commentary, NASA documentaries and progress reports, and TV and radio broadcasts sourced from LM5 are used in an attempt to capture the feeling of the times. Language and attitudes should be seen in that context.

Research, cleanup, editing, and processing by Retro Space HD.
