CAPCOM Hey, that’s a great shot right there. 0000007168 00000 n The Atlantic Ocean dominates the view with the South American continent at the lower part of the globe. 0000005218 00000 n The crew of Apollo 11 is in the rest period. Apollo 11 passes into Earth's shadow at 194:36:41 and around that time, Buzz takes some 16-mm footage of a very thin crescent disappearing into black. North is approximately up with the Greenland icecap visible. Postmarked way back in 1969, 50 years on, these incredibly nostalgic original First Day Covers are now very hard to find. It went up to space on July 16, 1969, carrying three astronauts: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. When the CMP measures the angle between a star and a planet's horizon, he has to tell the computer whether he's measuring to the horizon nearest the star or furthest from the star. T-25 seconds. CAPCOM Rog. July 17, 1969. CAPCOM Roger. Image by LPI. The moment of docking is given in the Apollo 11 Mission Report as 128:03:00. Image measurement and triangulation suggests that four photographs are taken around this time. Apollo 11 was the first flight to send people to the moon. July 17 marks Day 2, the day of the launch. On July 21, 1969 some strange phenomena occurred in parts of the USA and made many Americans go crazy. Apollo 11 is a 2019 American documentary film edited, produced and directed by Todd Douglas Miller. As a check of their attitude, the manoeuvre PAD included a star, number 30 (Menkent, Theta Centaurus) that ought to be in the sextant's field of view when the spacecraft is properly orientated and the instrument's shaft and trunnion angles are as prescribed. Those figures are not based on the proper Ground Elapsed Time. The two stars that he will use are star 36 (Vega, Alpha Lyrae) and 37 (Nunki, Sigma Sagittarii). The crew switch their communications to operate through one of the Command Module's omnidirectional antenna, Omni A. With William F. Naumann. During this upcoming pass, we'll have our second excursion on the part of the Apollo 11 crew into - into the Lunar Module. Jim Lovell is referring to his and Buzz's flight in Gemini 12. Image by LPI, AS11-36-5357 - Earth at about 205,000 km or 111,000 nautical miles. Apollo 11 Highlights . 0000000716 00000 n In the middle of this pause, there seems to be some very low-level modulation that might be Buzz trying to talk on the air/ground. At some point between 10 and 30 hours, Buzz begins to transmit video to Earth. EAGLE The Eagle has wings. From these sightings, he determines how far the platform has drifted since the last P52 15 hours ago. North is approximately up with the Greenland icecap visible. Star 01 is Alpheratz (Alpha Andromedae). %PDF-1.3 %���� Il y a 47 ans tout pile, le 20 juillet 1969, l'Homme a pour la première fois marché sur la Lune. 0000005181 00000 n At 57 hours, 4 minutes; this is Mission Control, Houston. It's grown quite quiet here in Mission Control. The Atlantic Ocean dominates the view with the South American continent at the lower part of the globe. A possibility is that Mike is looking to see how his copy of the state vector, the one in the LM slots, has changed with his sightings. JULY 17, 1969. If the valve is in any other position, then the gauge reading is meaningless. Spain and western Sahara are near the terminator. We're now 2 minutes, 53 seconds from reacquiring the spacecraft; 21 minutes, 23 seconds from the beginning of the powered descent to the lunar surface. When it does so, it takes with it a tilting prism arrangement that yields a moveable line of sight superimposed upon it. Note that the pressure gauge that Mike is reading is only connected across either side of the forward hatch when the Tunnel Vent Valve is in its "LM/CM Delta-P" position. 0000000989 00000 n Also visible are Arabia, Asia and Europe, particularly Spain. PAO Buzz Aldrin reporting that he’s halfway into the LM. Mark. Tower clear. However, since a valve in the LM's overhead hatch has been deliberately left open, the reading will reflect the pressure in the LM cabin also. As expected, this orbit is changing slightly as the S-IVB third stage vents. It hasn't gone quite as expected. North is left with the Greenland icecap visible. Durant la mission, Neil Armstrong et Buzz Aldrin (Michael Collins n’ayant pas quitté Eagle, le module lunaire ou véhicule qui les a transportés jusqu’à la Lune) ont notamment posé un drapeau américain sur la Lune, installé un réflecteur laser (pour calculer facilement la distance Terre-Lune) et un sismomètre (pour mesurer les vibrations sur sol), et récolté environ 20 kgd’échantillons du sol lunaire. Astronauts report it feels good. Day 5 . In the last couple of hours of their second day in space, the crew of Apollo 11 return their spacecraft to the Passive Thermal Control roll, they try to observe a laser fired at them through a telescope in Texas, then they settle down for the night. North is up and the African continent is prominent. The color’s not too (garbled) at least on this set. Also visible are Arabia, Asia and Europe, particularly Spain. The flight was part of the Space Race. Strictly speaking, it is the difference in pressure between the tunnel and the CM cabin. Some 51 minutes remaining in the scheduled sleep period for the crew of Apollo 11. The residuals are on the order of a half a foot a second or less, and will not be trimmed. When Mike attempted to carry out a navigation exercise before their sleep period, it didn't go too well. This is Apollo Control. Spain and western Sahara are near the terminator. Twenty seconds and counting. We said, if it didn't happen on that day at that specific time, we're not using it." 0000001189 00000 n Image by LPI, AS11-36-5354 - Earth at about 181,000 km or 98,000 nautical miles. They make their first Midcourse Correction by firing the Service Module engine, photograph the Earth, and listen to some music over lunch. Those cylinders were known as trunnions and engineers took this term for the sextant's tilting arrangement and therefore we get a trunnion angle for the star line of sight which can be up to 50° away from the fixed line of sight. We have a liftoff ... 32 minutes past the hour, liftoff on Apollo 11. And Bruce McCandless is back on the CapCom console now. 12, 11, 10, 9 ... ignition sequence start ... 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 ... All engines running. This is Apollo Control. It focuses on the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, the first spaceflight from which men walked on the Moon. Apollo 11 Highlights . 0000009023 00000 n We see you in there. Apollo 11 - Day 3 (Full Mission)18th July 1969 - This video starts at GET 43h 29m and covers the third day of the flight. It is unclear what Buzz means by 'P23 damage'. The regularly scheduled time for the television transmission is 6:47 pm Central Daylight Time, and we are anticipating that that transmission will occur as scheduled. 867 0 obj <> endobj At that time the spacecraft will be 104,350 [nautical] miles [193,256 km] from both the Earth and the Moon. The sextant's optical magnification is 28 times, which makes it an excellent instrument with which to study the now distant Earth. His accuracy in this instance is excellent as shown by a display of 'all balls' for Noun 05, the star angle difference. That’s one small s… Come the time of the midcourse correction burn, it is vital that the spacecraft be in the correct attitude so that the force applied by the engine will be in the right direction. McCandless has asked for a Verb 66 which is an instruction to make a copy of the state vector that is in the CSM slots of the computer and put it in the LM slots. Distance is now 103,263 nautical miles [191,243 km]. Sounds from Apollo 11 "We have a liftoff": Commentary: Thirty seconds and counting. Having 'zeroed the optics' which brings the shaft angle to its centre, zero-degrees parking position, the procedure requires that a star be viewed through the sextant's fixed line of sight (known as LLOS or Landmark Line Of Sight in the documentation). The values he will come up with, in Noun 93, are -0.493° in X, -0.191° in Y and -0.024° in Z. CAPCOM Roger, Neil. He described the blue of the oceans, the swirl of the clouds, and went on: "Can pick out the browns in the landforms pretty well. 0000000016 00000 n Also visible are Arabia, Asia and Europe, particularly Spain. Could you describe what you’re looking at, over? Remarkably, the master die used to create the stamp actually travelled to the Moon’s surface on board the Apollo 11 module with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin! It was set to the value of Delta-V. Apollo 11 was the culmination of the Apollo program and a massive national commitment by the United States to beat the Soviet Union in putting people on the Moon. This is Apollo Control at 139 hours. By measuring the rotation of the planet between the last two images, it appears that 5355 was taken about 13 minutes after 5354. The Atlantic Ocean dominates the view with the South American continent at the lower part of the globe. Image by LPI, AS11-36-5359 - Earth at about 210,000 km or 113,500 nautical miles. It’s really superb. 0000002821 00000 n North is right and the African continent is prominent. L'agence spatiale américaine, la NASA, remplit ainsi l'objectif fixé par le président John F. Kennedy en 1961 de poser un équipage sur la Lune avant la fin de la décennie 1960. Image by LPI. How does it look? Doctor Aviation recaps the week. More specifically, Mission Control had given him accurate attitude angles that ought to have placed this at the substellar point, a point that is the nearest or furthest point on the planet's limb from the star with which the angle is being measured. This dish antenna can automatically track a ground station by sensing when it is going slightly off track. Directed by Olaf Held. AS11-36-5358 - Earth at about 210,000 km or 113,500 nautical miles.
