The countdown utilized by Fritz Lang to generate tension in his 1929 silent film Frau im Mond's rocket launch scene not only changed film history but also influenced NASA to adopt countdowns before its own blastoffs. However, it is not a race against the clock. NASA is free to suspend the clock to investigate mechanical issues.
