Director Damien Chazelle was particularly concerned with making his film as authentic as possible. This care for detail was maintained until it came to the reproduction of the space capsules. He and chief designer Nathan Crowley agreed that no ship would be enlarged by more than ten percent, even if it sacrificed the comfort of the actors. This also caused complications for framing. The solution was to create a decor that fit in several detachable parts. In fact, the technicians had to break the seats in two to be able to integrate the cameras with the capsule.
That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
When first depicted as coming around the dark side of the moon, the interior of the spacecraft is totally dark, with no instrument lights or any other light source of any kind. This is absurd, as it would mean that absolutely everything was shut down. Also, when looking at the lunar surface, the spacecraft is clearly changing its pitch. There is no way that this maneuver would have happened without the astronauts strapped in and with all the instruments fully lit.
Near the end of the closing credits, the music is replaced by radio chatter from the mission.
