The Landing of the Apollo 11 on the Moon
The 1960’s, a decade of political and social change in many parts of the globe. As the peoples of the earth explored new boundaries of social interaction, explored the changes in our environment, another exploration was taking place high above.
A series of remarkable achievements is the world’s astronauts and scientist probed the far reaches of space bringing to the earthbound population incredible views and a better understanding of our world in the atmosphere that surrounds us.
Some of the most significant revelations evolved in the series of NASA’s Apollo Missions. The ultimate objective of which was landing a man on the moon.
While the earth continues its evolution as we knew it, most of the world’s millions were unaware of the activities in space in preparation for a lunar landing.
In the flight of Apollo 9, astronauts McDivitt, Scott and Schweickart checked out the lunar module in flight in docking maneuvers with the command service module.
On Apollo 10, the crew of Thomas Stafford, John Young and Eugene Cernan took the spacecraft to the vicinity of the moon where the lunar module closed to within 16 kilometers of the surface before re-docking with the orbiting command module.
At long last, the Kennedy Space Center was set for the Apollo 11 Mission that would put two men Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin Jr. on the moon while Michael Collins waited for them in the command module Columbia.
In July 1969 with billions of people waiting, watching and listening to this extraordinary voyage, the spaceship Columbia approached the moon. The moment that so many dedicated personnel on the space program had dreamed of was near at hand.
Cleared by mission control to proceed to the moon, the astronauts on board Columbia under the direction of Michael Collins fired the S-IVB engine increasing the velocity of their spaceship to 38,400 kilometers per hour.
On the 20th of July 1969 at Sunday in the United States, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin occupied and powered up the Lunar Module Eagle and deployed its landing legs.
The two crafts separated at 1:46pm. Collins fired the command module rockets to move about three kilometers away.
Flying feet first face down, Armstrong and Aldrin fired Eagle’s descend engine at 3:08pm. Forty minutes later, with the command module emerged from behind the moon. Collins reported everything is going just swimmingly.
The two astronauts guided the eagle into elliptical orbit. Armstrong throttled the engine at 4:05PM to slow its descend.
As the moonscape came into clearer view, Armstrong saw they were approaching a crater almost as large as a football field and took over manual control and steered toward a less formidable side.
At mission control, physicians noted its heartbeat at increase from a normal 77 to 156.
The world heard Armstrong’s quiet message, “Houston, tranquility base here, the Eagle has landed.” In Houston, the relief of the tension was palpable.
