Mike Goldwing, a plucky, determined 12-year old boy, is the son and grandson of NASA astronauts. His grandfather Frank, a once revered, but now forgotten retired astronaut, lives his days isolated from his family after missing out on his big chance to fly to the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as a part of the Apollo XI mission. When an eccentric billionaire sets an evil plan to fly to the moon, steal the moon's vast mineral resources, and destroy the American flag planted by the Apollo XI team, Mike embarks on a magnificent adventure as a stowaway on the space shuttle. Accompanied by his grandfather, best friends Amy and Marty, and a clever chameleon, Mike blasts off to the moon to capture the flag and reunite his family.
On the fake "found footage" of the first moon landing you can see that the director (the janitor) looks like Stanley Kubrick. The idea that Kubrick actually directed the 1969 landing was shown in the mockumentary Dark Side of the Moon (2002).
NASA astronauts Alan Bean and Miguel López-Alegría are technical advisors. Bean was the fourth man to walk on the moon with Apolo XII's voyage in November, 1969. Alegría was the first Spanish astronaut to travel outer space.
