We Choose the Moon: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing
http://www.wechoosethemoon.org/

Quote:

Wechoosethemoon.org is an interactive experience recreating the historic Apollo 11 mission to the Moon in real time. Once where only three men made the trip, now millions can. Live event begins 9:32 AM EDT July 16, 2009. Exactly 40 years after Apollo 11 lifted off.


20 years ago, I spent the Apollo 11 anniversary at the National Air & Space Museum, and they recreated the events in real time on video monitors all around the museum, i.e. the landing was shown at 4:17pm EDT.

This looks to be an even better way to relive it!


EDIT: Sorry, y'all! I should've included these links, too...

http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/apollo11_radio

Apollo Flight Journal
http://history.nasa.gov/afj/

Apollo Lunar Surface Journal
http://history.nasa.gov/alsj/

Follow the timestamps on the Journals in combo with the timers on WeChooseTheMoon to avoid the long periods of static on the Air-to-Ground audio while the astronauts are sleeping or eating (or just not talkative).

NASA's also released the onboard audio for the mission, but the quality is not impressive...

Here's the original Apollo 11 videotape, lost for 39 years until this month. Too bad CNN got the date wrong:
http://covertoperations.blogspot.com/2009/07/new-apollo-11-footage.htm
l




Funny how on the Apollo tapes, there's no delay for radio to travel 500,000 miles between the Earth and the Moon at 186,000 miles per second. Hard to have a conversation with a 2.5-second delay...

Too bad no photo exists of any Apollo lander on the Moon.
www.esa.int/esa-mmg/mmg.pl?b=b&type=I&mission=SMART-1&start=4

Too bad NASA can't build a real Moon rocket that can fly, and now never will:
www.fireflyfans.net/mthread.asp?b=18&t=35989&m=716231

Too bad NASA can't even find its own videotape and computer tapes from Apollo 11 after 40 years.
www.piratenews.org/hollywood.html

Too bad Apollo was named for SATAN.

Too bad Uncle Scam hasn't printed its own money or kept its income taxes since 1917.

Too bad its been 45 years since CIA whacked JFK Sr in Operation Northwoods, and 10 years since it whacked JFK Jr.

Too bad Amerikans are the dumbest sheeple on the planet.


Who forgot the frakkin rocket exhaust?!

I was a boy when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. I was sitting there watching the TV with my family when Armstrong took his famous step. It's something that I will never forget.

It is astounding to me that nearly 40 years have passed since that day.

And it is sad to me that younger people... even folks in their late 30s and early 40s... just can't know what that experience was like, when we watched humans walk on another world.

Worse, when it became a fad that America got tired of and shut down.

To me, it was like a magic time.

But Hollywood has, which sort of makes the whole idea of the moon landing being fake more credible with each passing decade.

CNN has an article on the subject:

http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/space/07/17/moon.landing.hoax/index.html

With what Hollywood can do with CGI and VFX these days, I have no doubt that a few hundred years from now (if we don't kill ourselves first) some will have difficulties telling the difference between the real and the imagined of things that existed during the 20th and 21st centuries.

Sad, but interesting article Haken. I'd wager that these moon-landing non-believers would be the same ilk as those who believe that Bush blew up the World Trade Towers. As for your hope to have humanity around in a few hundred years, I think it un-likely.

No, it doesn't. Just because they might be able to do it now doesn't mean they could (or did) forty years ago.
It was a great accomplishment, one that hasn't been replicated because it was also a very expensive accomplishment. If people were willing to dump the same kind of money on space travel that gets dumped into wars, odds are a man would have walked on Mars by now. But, it seems, people just aren't that smart, and more people are interested in conflict than exploration, and that's a shame. But there was a moment when that exploration captured everyone's attention, imagination, and heart. That shouldn't be devalued.

LEO gets boring after awhile.

As for the alleged photos of Apollo LEMs on the Moon, the shadows look too long for only a bottom stage. Oops... And I really doubt Apollo 16 would have survived landing so close to a crater, at least not without pooping their Pampers on live TV.
www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/multimedia/lroimages/apollosites.html
www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,533536,00.html

Never mind all that deadly gamma rays, x-rays and 6-million-mph nuke particles, or 400-degree F with no shade.

"Chain of custody" is a legal requirement in every courtroom. NASA blew it by losing all video and computer tapes and doctoring all photos of Apollo. These "new" lunar orbital photos also fail the Best Evidence Rule, when the first photos taken show no landers. Police routinely stage crime scenes to win convictions of innocent people, and FBI crime lab has been busted faking evidence so many times even fed judges don't believe them anymore.

Tip for the wise, never trust psychopathic serial-killing mass-murdering criminals to tell the truth about anything, even about taking pictures of the Moon/moon. You do realize NASA Nazis genocided 25,000 slaves in their underground ICBM factory at Nordhausen?

Buzz Aldrin actually sues people who use NASA photos of him on the "moon", claiming copyright infringement for historic govt photos.

Let's give Apollo astronots the benefit of the doubt, and say they did walk on The Moon, then return safely to Earth, using exactly the same flimsy spacecraft (their words).

How would these Apollo military combat fighter pilots handle doubters? By punching reporters in the face on TV? No.

They would talk their frakkin ears off bragging about all the boring details of their flight. I've interviewed World War 2 combat vets shot down over Nazi Germany. We toured the combat museums in England, actually climbed inside a B17. My news articles about those interviews were published in magazines all over the world, and got my uncle invited to the White House, and no his daughter is now a judge on TN Supreme Court.
www.geocities.com/snetterton_b17_pow_mia

NOBODY HAS EVER BEEN ALLOWED INSIDE AN APOLLO LEM, which is standing room only, and impossible to exit the hatch in a spacesuit. Why are there no museums with even mockups of LEMS for kids to play in?

When Neil Armstrong went to Bohemian Grove to speak to the rich and famous nudist colony, he never once mentioned Apollo.

Kubrick's 2001 shows Moon rockets with no interior sound and no rocket exhaust, just like Apollo. Some say he directed the Apollo programming.

But CNN has hot disinfobabes. Who needs a brain when you have plastic boobies?

I've been glued to NASA-TV every minute that a Space Shuttle mission is in progress, especially during ISS construction!

People complain about "all that money we waste" on the Space Program, and I just have to ask "All what money? NASA gets $17 billion versus the Military's $500 billion!"
I think spaceflight is somewhat more constructive than war.
Actually, it's the coolest thing humans do!

I don't understand why only going to the Moon or Mars counts as a "real" space program.
Anywhere humans can't go outside without their blood boiling is Real Space, as far as I'm concerned.
And I'd rather visit LEO than the Moon, anyway!
On the ISS, you can hold a 600-pound piece of equipment effortlessly with your fingertips...

On the Moon, that'll still weigh 100 pounds! I've got a bad back, so I have trouble lifting even 50 pounds.
When you go EVA on the ISS, you stay nice & shiny clean — on the Moon, not so much...

I do the same thing. Especially during spacewalks.

Do you know of a website where you can listen to old mission audio from Apollo, Mercury or Gemini? I'm noe talking about snippets; I mean from the beginning of the mission to the end.

According to that CNN article I posted upthread...

Quote:

Stoll said he and other NASA employees in Houston, Texas, are in the process of digitizing NASA’s entire audio collection, most of which is on old-fashioned tape. The older tapes, like the ones from Apollo missons, are in great conditon and are kept under strict environmental controls, he said. But newer tapes, like those from the 1980s, tend to gum up reel players. He has to heat those tapes to 130 degrees with a small oven before he can play them.

All of that work will soon culminate in a public Web site where people can listen to NASA audio from many other U.S. space missions.

That site should go up in two months or so, he said.

We sniff the air, we don't kiss the dirt.

Oh, man! That worked perfect! I was running this great video of the last 15 minutes of the landing...
http://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/A11Landing.mov
...which starts right at 102:30:45 GET, when Buzz says "Verb 77", and reading along with the Lunar Surface Journal...
http://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/a11.landing.html
...while listening to the mission audio.
My adrenaline was pumpin', boy!

Too bad all the graphical elements on that WeChooseTheMoon site shut down after lunar contact!
Don't they realize there's more to this mission than just the landing?
At least the audio runs 'til splashdown.

Gonna be listening all the way past the EVA.
A little while ago, the PAO (Public Affairs Officer) made an interesting comment...
Quote:

Meanwhile, as we'll soon be progressing toward man's first step on the lunar surface, we have an interesting phenomena here in the mission control center, Houston. Something we've never seen before. Our visual of the lunar module, our visual display now standing still. Our velocity digitals for Tranquility Base now reading zero. Reverting, if we could, to the terminology of an earlier form of transportion, the railroad: What we're witnessing now, is man's very first trip into space with a station stop along the route.

Made me go, "Hey! Yeah!"

No, it doesn't. Just because they might be able to do it now doesn't mean they could (or did) forty years ago.
It was a great accomplishment, one that hasn't been replicated because it was also a very expensive accomplishment. If people were willing to dump the same kind of money on space travel that gets dumped into wars, odds are a man would have walked on Mars by now. But, it seems, people just aren't that smart, and more people are interested in conflict than exploration, and that's a shame. But there was a moment when that exploration captured everyone's attention, imagination, and heart. That shouldn't be devalued.

That's the smartest-ever post from you , P-R , that I can recall...Good on you !

I believe that the United States could have had a manned Moonbase AND a manned mission to Mars , for a fraction of the cost of the Iraq war alone...

In other Space News , astronauts aboard the Space Station fixed the crapper :

'...Space station astronauts repaired a broken toilet in the U.S Destiny laboratory today, replacing components that were contaminated during a malfunction Sunday. After tests to make sure the complex system was operating properly, flight controllers cleared the combined 13-member shuttle-station crew to resume normal use.

The toilet broke down Sunday when chemically treated water flooded a pump and contaminated other downstream equipment. The astronauts removed access panels and replaced a half-dozen components during work Sunday and Monday.

While that was going on, the shuttle's seven-member crew was restricted to using Endeavour's on-board toilet and the six-man station crew was told to use the potty in the Russian Zvezda command module.

Going into Endeavour's mission, NASA planned for several shuttle crew members to use the toilet in the Destiny module to avoid filling up the shuttle's waste water tank. Normally, the tank is vented overboard when it nears a full load, but that was not an option for Endeavour's crew. Docked to the front of the station near the Japanese Kibo module, the shuttle's waste water nozzle could have contaminated experiment attachment fittings on the newly installed Japanese Exposed Facility.

But given the quick repair of Destiny's waste and hygiene compartment - and assuming no other problems develop - engineers said the shuttle waste water tank was in no danger of filling up before Endeavour undocks at the end of the mission.'
