Add in some good fortune at the right times and they pulled off a bona fide miracle, and NASA went on to fly four additional successful moon landings.
Technical advisor to the film Dave Scott, Apollo 15 commander, is a Michigan attendee (I think something like 105 of the Apollo-era astronauts were Michigan people in one way or another).
