The dog disappeared. I'm not a very emotional person when it came. To Apollo was definitely more a lot more. We meant a lot to me. He was on basic like a son. Rui says he believes Apollo was taken that he would not have run away. He's offering a $2000 reward for Apollo safe return with no questions asked.

"Agreements between different countries that constrain what these airplanes can do at different times at least the passenger jets, the military want a low unto themselves but the there is some agreements there too. So I I'm very much in favour off step-by-step agreeing. Constraints as well as a knowing what's going on, but there'll be a constraints that ever be realizes and accepts. So long as everybody else signs up to them, it's good to follow them to. Well, they will fail is if people worry that they will sign up to them but they will be suckered by others who are breaking the laws which why you need the monitoring.

Do you think that direction sharing in addition to just setting up bumpers and barriers will be part of where the steering takes us or do you see that as not good or not likely? It is useful if there is a common sense of humanity that this is the trajectory that we're going to. This is something wonderful that we are building together when Paulo Eleven went to the moon or even before it went. Apollo. Eight went round the moon came back. It temporarily caused a lot of the. Tribalism on the earth to be suspended and people look in wonder off and people thought yeah. It's great that we're going there. It's. It's amazing that we have footprints on the Moon from people from the US. And I think it was bill under one of the.

NASA Announces Plans To Launch Chimpanzee Into Sun

"NASA is once again looking to further our knowledge of the universe and the effects. It has on life here on earth, which is exactly why the Space Agency is announced. It is now planning to launch a chimpanzee into the sun within the next ten years. The science world is calling the efforts a crucial step forward in solar exploration and better understanding how species react to being deposited into the sons twenty seven million. Degree plasma core for more on this monumental mission were joined by Opie our science reporter Rebecca Neal. Hi. Leslie Rebecca. How does NASA plan on pulling this off? Well, I, spoke with Nastas lead on the mission Tom Danes and he told me that chimpanzee will be put in a capsule that will contain several sophisticated instruments that would monitor how the animal reacts as it plunges into a burning ball of gas eight, hundred sixty. Five thousand miles in diameter. Here's Danes with some more details. The heat sensors to the chimpanzees body will provide us with real time data about what he's experiencing is he's in by the Sun's gravity as a close biological relative to our species. We believe his skin will react similarly to the sons extreme heat and aggressive UV radiation, and hypothetically his body will disintegrate at a similar rate to human beans right and if. The mission is successful. Hopefully, what we learned from this mission will pave the way for sending human astronauts into the sun on a regular basis. So is the idea here that there could maybe one day be a permanent colony on the sun for humans to get launch to in evaporate and a hellish fire on a regular basis well, Dan said that is a long term goal, but I they need to monitor how the. Chimpanzee handles the sons, ten thousand degrees, surface right patients whose key. Now, this is a bold mission but not the first of its kind correct. That's right a mission like this has happened before but on a smaller scale, for example, on NASA's first attempt to land on the moon with Apollo Eleven, the agency strapped and unprotected duck to the side of the space shuttle the duck perished immediately upon takeoff which helped NASA. Stand the benefits of being inside the capsule as opposed to outside of it. When shooting towards space, they've also experimented with abandoning several elephants on Mars and sending a capsule full of turtles deep into the void of space to be consumed by a black hole. These have all been instrumental to the revolutionary undertaking NASA announced today definitely what are the chances of something going wrong? Well, space travel is inherently dangerous as many Americans. Still, remember several horses never even made it into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger but Danes told me that they plan on testing their launch model thousands of times to ensure that the chimpanzee reaches the Sun's core safely before anything goes wrong on its way there there's no have any idea who will be manning this mission to the SUN NASA is keeping its potential chimpanzee roster under wraps right now but sources tell. Me The leading candidate is a seven-year-old chimpanzee named Bobo currently taking up residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. NASA

Your Awake Heart Is Calling You

"Are Reflection tonight is You're awake cart is calling you. That's the title. And I thought I'd start with A. Story that I was reminded of recently, it happened some years back at when I was teaching at CHR- Apollo a weekend on awakening loving presence and. One evening we were exploring getting into a real deplace of inner listening. And I had I arranged to have my husband. Jonathan play the flute. So we're going to get into a real quiet place and then listen to the flute music. So we did a meditation and the room became very very still and then all of a sudden a woman's cell phone went off as has happens and it was the yellow rose of Texas didn't don't don't. You know it and so often the songs blaring. She panicked says, she tries to grab her phone out of her bag but by mistake she hit the speaker phone. So you hear this voice going. She's grabbed trying to grab her mom is that you? So she's trying to get out of the room because she was up front and you hear this voice going mom speak to be mom are you OK? Mom. She was so embarrassed she left the room and what really struck me about it and when she came back. This is a person who is kind of new to the practice and so on and she told me what happened how many people came to our afterward who said That kind of thing that happens to me, it's terrible and kind of gave her a hug and. She got brought back into the community by people saying, Hey, I know what? It's lake you know. It's such deep conditioning to feel separate and that something's wrong with us to feel. Separate and then to forget how other people. Are Feeling when things go on for them, we have we kind of forget the subjective real -ness of people what they're experiencing and there's this. To me magical question which is. What's it like for you right now? You know what is life like for you? and. What is it like we have this capacity, these mirror neurons and a lot more in our brain to extend our perceptiveness and really feel with. And yet we? Depending on degree of stress. Forget that question. So we forget of somebody has a disability what is it like for you? Are Somebody's partner just after twenty years just suddenly said, Hey, this is over we're ending relationship. What's it like in those moments for that person? Are for the person right now and the beginning of two, thousand and seventeen, who's an immigrant. And is unsure of their status. The african-american applying for a job and this white dominant business. What's it like for you? What is this like for you? So we forget, and as I mentioned, we have this capacity for actually training and remembering more and more. To really sense subjective realness. So. There's a story that I heard a long long time ago that to me captures some with a Sikh master who gives his two most devoted disciples. Each. A chicken and may says, go where no one can see kill the chicken. So one goes behind a shed and picks up an axe and chops off the chickens hat. And the other wanders around for hours and it returns back with chicken alive. And the masters. So what happened and his response was I can't find a place to kill the chicken where no one can see me everywhere I go. The chicken sees. So for to that chicken was real. And Conscious and felt pain. And as we deepen our awareness of our own vulnerable being as we have that courage to contact the real. Vulnerability. What happens is more and more other humans become real. That is the process others care about their lives. They WANNA stay alive they want to be happy. So I've always been taken by the story and particularly I've taken by it right now when so many feel this dismay like the the message of the stories all life matters all life is precious and just. So in our atmosphere dismay that in a way society wise work regressing and that there's a sense that we're reverting more in the direct mentality are some are the real humans and matter, but others don't matter.

"Burdens, a new HBO documentary premiering tonight takes on the stories that we don't often hear about when it comes to Olympic athletes. Sure, its all up close and personal when the game's run is we have come to expect, But there's a dark side about what happens when the quest doesn't end necessarily with a medal around one's neck. A weight of gold is a far cry from the typical athlete profile packages we often see during the Olympics. That's why I was just like, Why don't I just ended on Olympic icon Michael Phelps and Mohr Open up about the darkness that almost let him To end his life and his fellow athletes that have died by suicide.

The families sometimes moves along with the athlete, so they gotta prove there's no money in this thing. So you win and hopefully get a sponsorship in cash. It's all personal sacrifice. So much of it starts when their kids yes. You know young kids and being taken to the pool or the ice rink or wherever. And this just deals with ones who actually make it to the games from the seven. What about all those kids who don't make it who lose up the trials, and they've invested all that same amount of time? I've done more in the Obama. That's probably another documentary among the folks the interview short track speed skater Apollo. No, Everybody knows him. You mean short track speed skating, not a huge sport.

But after the Olympics with village doors close, and that's kind of it. Oh, no. Says he had his health insurance pulled a month after he retired as an athlete. The documentary says About 80% of Olympians experience post competition depression. The weight of gold also mentioned several who committed suicide among them, Ariel skier Jeret Speedy Peterson.

"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer.

Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer.

Surveyor 1 landed on moon - June 2, 1966

"The Day was June second nineteen, sixty six. Nastase Lunar Lander Surveyor wine landed on the moon. The event marks the first time an American. Space probe made a successful soft landing on the moon. On February third nineteen, sixty six, the Soviet Union's Luna Nine, became the first spacecraft to make a soft landing on the moon. By this time, the Soviets and the Americans successfully crash-landed probes on the surface of the moon, but landing required something to cushion the landing like rockets as well as a way to send the information back to Earth. For Luna Nine, the entire spacecraft descended to the surface, but a landing capsule was ejected just before impact. NASA launched the Surveyor Program to demonstrate the feasibility of lunar surface landings. The program was also designed to get data and preparation for Nastase Apollo space, missions. Surveyor one was the first of the series of seven robotic spacecraft sent to the moon. As part of the program, it was designed as an engineering test flight for demonstration of its launch vehicle the Atlas-centaur, it also served to demonstrate the spacecraft's mid course and terminal maneuvers as well as radar in rocket controlled soft landing. Another one of the mission's objectives was to demonstrate the ability of the survey or communication system and deep space network to maintain communications with the spacecraft during its flight after a soft landing. The planning site for Surveyor. One was the southwest part of. The Laura Avast, dark plain on the western edge of the near side of the moon. surveyor-1 lifted off from Cape Kennedy on May Thirtieth Nineteen Sixty six. On June, second

SpaceX to become the first private company to send humans to space

"Here we are just one day away from the dawn of a new era in space flight the SpaceX falcon nine rocket is ready to blast off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and it's due to send two NASA astronauts into space making the SpaceX rocket the first private rocket first private company overall the launch humans into orbit we've been counting down to this historic milestone in space exploration in our launch America coverage and mark Strassman is at the Kennedy Space Center where there are I hate to say this mark growing concerns about the weather say it ain't so Tony unfortunately it is so you can look at these overcast skies and they could be the spoiler for tomorrow's launch but whenever it happens this test flight will be a dramatic and important milestone in U. S. human space travel and it will all happen on launch pad thirty nine A. behind me the same pad that's an Apollo eleven to the moon right now the SpaceX rocket and crew capsule it will carry two veteran NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley that travel from here to the international space station both for shuttle veterans who have flown twice before to the space station only this time a private company will take them and that has never been done before and that would open a new era of commercial space travel but one factor that neither NASA nor SpaceX can control is the weather there is right now a sixty percent chance that conditions will be good enough to watch tomorrow but it's not just the weather here on site that matters meteorologists are tracking conditions up the east coast and here's why if the launcher run into a significant issue the in flight abort system would propel the capsule into the Atlantic and therefore the seas have to be reasonably call if the weather is not good for lunch tomorrow the next opportunity to watch would be Saturday afternoon Tony hi will whatever happens mark they will be blasting into the future though duly noted they're gonna blast in the future in some very retro looking uniforms in a retro looking capsule as well very cool stuff top

"The budget is left out when attending the Potsdam Conference two weeks earlier. The brand new president Harry. Truman had advised Stalin that the United States had successfully tested a bomb of stupendous explosive. The Power Stalin politely acted surprised and pleased but secretly he'd been well aware of the American atomic bomb project. and to tell the truth he really didn't think that much of it. It seemed insanity to him that America would spend the vast fortunate adjust invested for the sake of one single weapon now divisions in the answer Army divisions not just a bomb or two that was on August fifth on August six in Ola gay returned from her mission and three days later boxcar had limped back from hurts in the time between these two missions. Stalin had ripped up the neutrality pact that he'd had with Japan throughout the entire war a pack that had ensured that neither Russia or Japan would have had to fight a two front war but now that the Pacific were had been won by the Americans. Stalin Alan invaded on a relatively small scale. Some of the islands of the Japanese nation with suckling and correal Allen's a cynical move by the ultimate cynic but one that kept those islands under Soviet occupation for the duration of the cold historically. There doesn't seem to have been any single single lightbulb moment. When Stalin realized that his carefully laid plans for capturing all of Europe had evaporated in a millisecond flash up picador an instant when every weapon in the world was suddenly made obsolete? That is exactly what happened. Those two flashes of light that had ended World War. The two had miraculously prevented the conventional World War three that America and Britain had not the slightest chance of stopping or even slowing down until it was all over and far too late but slowly over the course of days or even weeks. Stalin began to realize that what this expensive American toy had done into. Brief flashes lashes was what the entire Nazi war machine had failed to do negate the ground power of the Red Army not only with the triumphant United States states. Air Force be able to annihilate Soviet armored concentrations the imperialist enemy could rain atomic death down on Moscow Leningrad Stalingrad and every other Soviet city not even the Russians who so far had been forced to withstand anything could withstand that the overwhelming Soviet advantage manage in conventional forces thousands of tanks millions of men had been balanced out by a hundred pounds of gray metal cuttingly engineered by the the best minds on the planet. Who's been working around the clock for the past several years out in the desert wastelands of New Mexico so now now perhaps you understand the mindset of the two superpowers as they entered into their forty three year conflict? The Soviet Union bloodied but unbowed by the most appalling war in human history. Division after battle-hardened division waiting along the entire length of the invisible the iron curtain the United States which had invested time money and resources to create a miracle weapon that had rendered the invasion of Japan and mood and stood ready to do the same to the Soviet invasion that had been so carefully prepared and was waiting in the wings on one side the brute force sledgehammer rich hammer the land army of the largest nation on earth with the seemingly endless supply fresh recruits capital of sustaining a seemingly endless amount of punishment on the other side the scalpel the millisecond timing needed terrain atomic fire from sober bombers in the dark blue skies of the stratosphere stratosphere now of course Russia would need the bomb and quickly American conventional forces would need to be rebuilt and quickly but the pattern for the entire fire. Cold War had been set right at the beginning. Massive Soviet superiority in conventional-arms versus massive American superiority and technology and know-how quality versus quantity was the question that determined the Cold War the American inability the unwillingness anyway to commit to the kind of casualties of conventional war in Europe would entail against the Soviet inability despite fanatical willingness to catch the American military in the continuing advances in lethality needed to offset the disparity in numbers both East and west of the Berlin Wall that had yet to be built both sides stirred at each other and realized their only chance for victory. Lay in fighting the next war on their Own Conditions yet each side realizing that the fight on their own strengths would paradoxically trigger the strengths of the other side. So there sits the reason for over four decades of stalemate and terror each side unable to fight on the battlefield their opponents and yet each side with the ability to catastrophically harm the other. It was this delicate hair spring balance the kept and would continue to keep the cold war cold the Cold War.

The Russian Revolution was born of men constantly instantly on the run from police wearing disguises as they were smuggled in and out of secret safehouses men whose real names were known to this.

Barry Goldwater, Senator Arizona wanted the money to go to the US air force into militarise space, and on the left people like Jay William Fullbright, Senator Arkansas, and Walter Mondale were posed going to the moon. They wanted to fight urban poverty in many African American leaders, like Reverend Ralph Abernathy said, no moon, but the day of when they that we of the launching of the they all fell in the line and said, we want these astronauts to come back alive, and we're proud of the tapes, looking at the coverage on CBS and the other networks. What stood out to you? You when, when you re watch these scenes fifty years later, just how even though we know the result now, like in the Apollo eleven documentary, how nervous I still get and be meaning even though we know it's a success. It's just like my gosh, are they gonna make it? And I think the Apollo thirteen movie is, is so popular with Tom Hanks, and that was a mission that almost was utter disaster that I every time I see an astronaut in space. I'm worried about them coming back. But also, I think it's the image of earth like the Bill Anders photograph of earth, rise, the idea that we were aiming for the moon, but it was really about looking at planet earth, you know, lonely, you know, blue green marble floating out there that brings the sniper yet used the word romantic, but spiritual feeling of space exploration, and then also I realized that we have done a lot. It was sense, Apollo, not just in the private. Sector. But what Jet Propulsion Laboratory Caltech, Pasadena, does with the Mars, and they're in the Mars Rover Mars expedition been phenomenal. But they may just hasn't captured more than the that, you know, thirteen to twenty five percent of the American public's interested, but a large part of our country just seems to tune it out. That's also because you don't have, you know, a human you don't have a pulse landing on Mars or on the moon right now. And people, you know that gives people real skin in the game when they feel like a human life is on the line. They can see themselves in whoever that astronaut is, and watch people wanna watch someone on earn real journey. Exactly. And I think as what you were talking about. That's also why NASA says space programs they turned more towards earth. Following the Apollo program in the, you know, started focusing on ISS and the shuttle program or what have you to, you know, instead of looking outward start looking more. Inward and I think now we are at a time or NASA is at a point where they're ready to look outward again. And that's why you have, you know, new missions to the moon on the horizon, and hopefully Mars. And, and the thing is, is had we never landed on the moon had NASA never pulled that off at American never pulled that off, he would just seem like hot air, talking about potentially going to Mars. And I don't think that anybody would give credence to any talk about a Mars mission, had we never landed on the moon and had the broadcasting of that not been so, so intense and just, you know, so visceral their lessons from fifty years ago that apply today. Wrapping up till I wonder what, what do you think that the biggest takeaway is from your research for, for American moonshot with a lesson should be as everyone looks to the fiftieth anniversary of this. Well that we have to do space exploration in the name of peace. No war, and that we have to have a, a spur. For when the last things Neil Armstrong did was said to Aldrin leave the packet on the moon and Alder leaves a pack it in, in it or medals commemorating, the Soviet cosmonauts, who had died and their space program. And we did that because without the competition like John F Kennedy and his Rice, University speech, put in there, you know, why do we climb out Everest? Why does rice play university of Texas and football? It's a challenge. So it might be China and all that they're doing on the dark side of the moon in the Chinese space program. That makes American say we want to go back to the moon before China. We want to go to Mars before any other country, nationalism might might be what, what triggers the funding as they used to say, NASA. No bucks. No buck Rogers Apollo program caught cost twenty five billion dollars. That's about one hundred and eighty billion in today's money. And in order to stoke the imagination, you need the media to. To cover space in a way, that's prime in in front and center. Not just on a NASA channel that only space buffs, watch Kennedy's, that in that speech, the vast stretches of the unknown and the unanswered. And the unfinished still far outstrip our collective comprehension. And those words are true today. There's still so much. We don't know Kennedy's Rice University speech of September twelfth nineteen sixty two is the finest utterance of any president, dealing with public discovery in the power of exploration, and he cold connected, our astronauts, in that speech to age of exploration of the oceans to Christopher Columbus, and Magellan, and the like in in he knew that we were getting spin off technology from going to the moon rights like GPS and MRI cat scans heart. Fibula tres anti-icing devices, one could go on and on it earned itself, eventually going to the moon by. All that spin off technology. Yeah. People have not read the speech or having read it in a while Google. It's worth re reading it's right up there on NASA dot gov entire text of Kennedy's speech. The other thing Brian that I just wanted to add to, as I if it speaks to the moment in time that we are in terms of, of the media's coverage of space is that I have a job that I am the space reporter for CNN CNN hasn't had a space reporter in quite some time. But as you pointed out earlier, people are looking for something to root for they're looking for something to be inspired by, and there's nothing more inspiring in my opinion than space exploration. Rachel, thanks so much for being here in Douglas best of luck with the new book, again, the title is American moonshot, John.

"apollo" Discussed on Apollo 11: Beyond the Moon

"One hundred twenty five million Americans are glued to their television screens. Awaiting the moment. The Neil Armstrong will take his first steps on the moon. This was brought into the homes of people all across the country and all around the world, thanks to the big networks. CBS ABC and NBC. And thanks to the television equipment that was installed on the lunar module by NASA. Nowadays in this fragmented media world, it is hard to imagine what that moment must have been like everybody all watching the same thing. Let's go back in time now with Douglas Brinkley CNN historian and author of the brand new book American moonshot all about the sixties and the space race culminating. In this incredible day nineteen sixty nine. Oh, thank you for having me. Appreciate it also joining us here. CNN's innovation in space. Correspondent Rachel crane. Thanks for having me Brian. Thank you, both for being here. Dulles you're just out with this new book all about JFK his ambitions to get America to the moon. And then that accomplishment, the end of the sixties. Let's go back even further. You were born not far from Neil Armstrong in Ohio, right? Yeah. I grew up in a town called Perry's Berg, Ohio, which wasn't too far from Wolpe, Connecticut. So when the big day of Apollo eleven Neil Armstrong's famous moment on the moon. We were all cheering like band. She's because it was the home. The homeboy was being the first human being on the moon. It was quite a big deal. And like many in my generation, particularly boys that age we're collecting NASA memorabilia of all the astronauts trading them, like playing cards. Yeah. Baseball players on the like and later, I got to do the official history. Of Neil Armstrong, four NASA in two thousand one I conducted that. And in the book, which which uses as aural histories you write about the night watching the moon landing at night. Take us back to what you remember as a as a boy, watching this historic event, unfold will the big thing was, you know, the timing in so we'd have to sleep differently nap differently to be up for when the moment happened. Right. And I and that was odd that we were juggling entire calendar to stay up for just to be awake for the moment, Dr L mal knew was going to be coming up. Almost eleven PM eastern time, we'll, and that's right. And when he finally put his foot on the moon, and we realized we did it just, you know with the whole family just arrived in cheers. L A phone pepper buddy talking. I mean this was a moment. You had five hundred was just one of five hundred fifty million people around the world watching listening to radio. And if I've gone around the country on my book, American moonshot, people of a certain generation all remember where. They were that day. We often talk in history about these big moments, like Pearl Harbor, you know, or Kennedy assassination or nine eleven but they're all tragedies. Paolo eleven Neil Armstrong was a was a great moment for all of you, Mandy, and television played a key role in generating support for the space race in the first place. I mean, that's something to recognize that having cameras having live coverage having the ability to witness all of this ensure the more Americans were on board to spend enormous sums of money for this. It's all about TV John F Kennedy during his debates with Richard Nixon said Nixon, if you're elected president, I see a Soviet flag planted on the moon. If you elect me it'll be an American flag. Then Kennedy start doing his press conferences and got great play on TV. But it's been Alan Shepard went into space as a counter statement to you're a good Garin, the Soviet cosmonaut, that's made fifth nineteen sixty one Kennedy could not. Believe how many millions of people tuned in for Alan shepherd, and then particularly watching on the nightly news read brought afterwards, and then particularly with John, Glenn in nineteen sixty to the point being that Kennedy recognized that this was a TV bonanza put an astronaut bring him down. And they start being seen as Kennedy Space core. And at the news outlets. Piccoli CBS IRO, Walter Cronkite, biography Cronkite, a bit hobby horsing, the space beat since the nineteen fifties, mid fifties. When there was no space speed. He has binders was going to, you know, Cape, Canaveral and working out of a station wagon and all of that. And so he really started tracking also the networks loved space because they could train the camera on the launch pad. They had a countdown. It was dramatic it, would, you know, nobody knew if you were gonna come back alive or not stakes are high, fifty fifty chance when I interview Neil Armstrong that they Armstong felt of success for Paul. Eleven fifty fifty success meeting, getting back alive. Well, he didn't say it that way. He said that they we might have to be aborted, the mission at some point that there, the idea that it would go smoothly was about fifty fifty. And so for granted now in William Safire, the speechwriter for Richard Nixon wrote a whole letter waiting for Nixon to say, sorry, Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins died that letter exists. He can read it as a historian. So now we know it was a success. But at the time, it was hair-raising pins and needles situation because Apollo one blew up on a nineteen sixty seven on the launch pad and Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee, and Ed white perished in a fireball and test exercise. So the odds of Apollo eleven working fall asleep they were even and Rachel, I think there's a real parallel between the days of Apollo and now but the guards the role of the media. In bringing these events back then into people's homes, but now into people's cell phones. Right. And every screen imaginable. Right. Of course. I mean right now, if SpaceX has a catastrophe. You see it on Twitter moments later and there's go pros all over the, the rocket itself. So the imagery that we have now is, you know, really brings you right up to the flight line almost of these launches and they're so much excitement. Brian right now surrounding space exploration, because it really does feel once again, like space is cool, that there's big things happening in space, and, you know, there's no greater discovery exploration story than that of human beings going and exploring SP space. I mean, it is it is in our DNA to explore, and we are all wanna know where we came from, we've all always looked up at the cosmos and contemplated. Our origin story. There's the. Practical and the poetic motivations to exploring space on the practical arguments why to do it. You have, you know, it's, it's sponsored technologies development. There's jobs education, national security, planetary defense, even you know, that we need a plan b what's going on. With climate change what's happening to our planet that we need to ensure their survival of, of mankind. But there's also the poetic argument and motivation to go that we want to know where we've come from that is that it is in our DNA to explore from the days that we walked out of caves to see the light. Exactly. And those I feel like the anchors fifty years ago, the best thinkers understood this Cronkite. You know in his own way, brought the majesty of the moment alive through his words and through the pictures, I thought it was Cronkite greatest broadcast moment, was covering of Apollo eleven you know, he, he would go on for hours on end he became known as the iron man of broadcasting. He was the most trusted person in America as he would soon be called. And he just did a flawless job. He had consulted people like Arthur, c Clarke, the great science fiction writer, you know, he had people like Wally Shera when of the original mercury astronauts, as anchor buddy. He you know, dealt with the history of space in fantasy rounds like a f-, you know, buck Rogers and flash, Gordon. He would talk about everything in such an informed way because he really believed that, that moment was the greatest moment of the twentieth, century. He had covered d day as the United Press International correspondent and. So he knew about g day but he thought that we broke the shackles of earth in nineteen sixty nine after the tumultuous sixties at the death of RFK and Martin Luther King junior, Vietnam war country torn apart. And then it's like a, a psalm everybody pulling together for this grand historic moment. And he had gotten a no, the astronauts, and their wives in a deeply personal way in retrospect with Cronkite didn't cover was that these were all white men, five ten and in under that were in mercury Jemma and Apollo. Meaning it wasn't Representative of diversity, and that there were women who had trained to be astronauts, call the mercury thirteen. They passed all of Dr Randy love, laces, endurance test, but due to gender bias they weren't allowed to be in the astronaut corps. So it's not until Sally ride nineteen Eighty-three that we have first American woman in. Space. But now when we talk about going back to the moon, like vice president Pence did in Huntsville, Alabama in the spring. I think the big motivator may be the first woman on the moon, if we're going back to the moon, there has to be a woman, astronaut, and that will be a big, big event that will be a TV moment that'll start galvanizing people. The problem with Apollo eleven was after we went to the moon ratings started dropping off for the other Apollo mission. Really? Yeah. They just weren't the bonanza anymore. Interesting. So Nixon cancels, the last three Apollo missions to scrap some because figures it's too risky. I'm not getting the big ratings and with the chance of dead astronauts, on my watch are very, very high. Think that the ratings that you're speaking of the dwindling ratings, also speaks to the excitement of the American people surrounding lunar missions, you know, at the time even right after Apollo eleven successful mission. American support of of the Apollo program was only at fifty three percent. So you know, we kind of look back at history with these rose colored glasses on. We think that the moon landing was this thing that really unified not only America but the world and it certainly did to an accent. But, you know, a lot of people were not convinced that the financial burden of pulling off this mission, which, you know, four percent of the federal budget over four percent of the federal budget was dedicated to the Apollo program that it was really worth it. And so then the Apollo program was cancelled early. And we haven't had a man on the moon or a woman on the moon or man back on the moon. Let alone a woman on the moon since the seventies, our final episode is all about the future of space. What, what that's going to look like whether it's going to be back on the moon, whether it's going to be going to Mars. And there's a lot to think about, and what that picture is going to be, you know, what's interesting is that we were just talk. About Americans support of a moon landing back in the day. We'll right now a recent Pew Research study showed that only thirteen percent of Americans think that sending humans to the moon should be a top priority and only eighteen percent of people think that going to Mars should be a priority of NASA. So, you know, while I'm quite biased because I myself a myspace enthusiasts the American people..

"apollo" Discussed on Apollo 11: Beyond the Moon

"And we are back now talking about all things. Apollo eleven and the importance of the human computers. Joining me now is the author of the bestselling book, Hidden Figures. Margo Lee shutter -ly. Her book was adapted into the award-winning film, both the book and the film showcase the critical roles of women behind the scenes at NASA, especially at the Langley research center for the mercury and the Apollo missions, Marco. I know the idea for this book came to you almost a decade ago at this point. Right. It was about two thousand ten when you started thinking about exploring this subject trite, and it really came out of my own personal story. My father who's now retired worked at natural Langley in Hampton Virginia as a research scientist as a consequence, I grew up there, and I had a very, very good fortune, to know women like Christine, Darden, and Katherine Johnson and Mary Jackson as a little girl. I got to see these role. Models who worked with my father at NASA, which, you know, every kid new while the smart, people work at NASA, and it was, but it really wasn't until I started on working on this book many decades later as an adult that I got a sense, for the true, scope and depth of the work that these women did, and it's meant the world to me to be so connected to people who were both very unassuming and extremely talented and doing this work for our country and the people you introduce us to in the pages of the book and the film adaptation. There described as human computers, help us understand what that term means. Sure, Brian will today, we think of computer as a piece of desktop software something you plug it into the wall. You know, it turns on it's like trying to, and it does all of our mathematical, heavy lifting for us in addition to a lot of other things, but the fact is for most of human history. A computer was a job title. Oh, it was the name or the title of a person, whose job, it was to compute do computations, do mathematics in a variety of different fields. And for most of the twentieth century, those people were women, so so much of the twentieth century, and the great advances that we've had in technology in defense in transportation, those things have come about as a consequence of women were human computers, sitting in rooms doing math in amazing critical job. So, so tell us about what you included in the book and the differences with the film. So I when I started working on this book, it was really obvious to me from the beginning that in order to get the whole story, I would have to start in World War, Two so many things happen in our country. Somebody changes happened during local or two and, and this is very similar. So I started with World War Two, and that was really the generation of women who are portrayed in the movie. Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson Dorothee von who started either. During the war, or just after the war, and who were on the job in nineteen sixty sixty one sixty two those early sixties, which is those are the events that are portrayed in the movie Christine, Dr Darden. She came along after those women nineteen sixty seven you know, in the middle of the, you know, we were still going full steam ahead to land on the moon. So that is the reason why she is not in the movie, the producers made the decision to focus on that time period. So the time leading up to World War Two, you know, the early part of the Cold War, Korean war. And then the aftermath of, of Apollo is in my book, but it is not portrayed in the film. So let me step back in time, here again, Margot, let's go back to the Apollo period, that, that you recount in, in your book, you, of course, describe what it means for. For these women to be working in a predominantly male predominantly white work environment. How pervasive was discrimination? How prevalent were these problems that you documented? Well, I think they're really two things or a couple of different things that changed over time when the women, I began working at NASA Langley in the, in the late mid thirties when white women for started working their World War, Two was really what opened the door to black women. There was legal discrimination. There were segregated workspaces the reciprocated bathroom segregated cafeterias. This was in the state of Virginia, which, which was, then a state, were Jim crow racial segregation laws applied. And so the women really had to work in a situation where there was that kind of legalized segregation now all of the women really had to, to work through expectations. And, and let's say customs in practice. This is related to gender discrimination. So, for example, even when women did the same work as their male counterparts, they could be paid less or given less of an opportunity less of a promotion. And, you know, one of the things that's really exciting about this book, and it was exciting to me about the research was to see how those women circumvented those that institutional idea that perhaps women were not as, as good at engineering as, as they could be at, at math. You know, which are two different job categories or that the women were satisfied just doing their jobs that somehow they didn't have the same ambitions, as did their male counterparts. So it was it was a really it was as much an interesting, look at the Evelyn of race and gender in the workplace, as it was an look at the development of airplanes, and of our space program. We're also helping rewrite the narrative rewrite the. History that many of us have been taught for decades that, that it was mostly if not all white men in white shirts, and black, skinny ties that put men on the moon. Why did that narrative? Take hold for so long before you and others have helped correct? Well, you know, those are the pictures that we saw you, we, we always saw the pictures of mission control. Those were the, you know, the white guys and skinny ties and the white shirts, and really even more than that, when we think of the space program, we think of the astronauts, you know, the fact is that hundreds of thousands of people and their brain power, their hard work many, many years of work. We're required to put the astronauts on the moon. We have a tendency to look at the, you know, the famous people and, and assume that they got their all in their own when the reality is for, for any great achievement. There are many, many people involved in making it happen. And it just so happens that if you're talking about women if you're talking about underrepresented groups, you know, we have the idea of what is scientist, or engineer looks like and they fall outside of those those boundaries. But one of the things that I think is very exciting about the state of history. Right. Now is that we are looking for those people. And I think people Muffin assume that when they look at a great event, or they look at successful people that they should also look for what they might not know, or -ssume that there's something missing and include those people who haven't been included in the narrative in the past into the future. What are the ways you'll be continuing to do to highlight the women who contributed to this project into NASA as a whole? Well, I think one of the ways we honor their legacy is by looking at the people today, who are doing those things, one of the things that's really wonderful for me doing the touring for, for Hidden Figures, the book and the movie is, I've met so many young people who are excited about engineering. They're excited about math. They're excited about NASA. They're excited about the future of space travel. And many of those people are women and young girls, and so and, you know, they get to look to not just Dr Darden or the, the other women have. Hidden Figures, but they get to look to a number of women who are in the field making strides today. They took the female astronauts, black female astronauts, you know, these are things that would have been all been unimaginable. When the first women went to work at NASA. So I, I really think the best way to honor their legacy is to shine a spotlight on the people who are doing the work today. Margaret, thanks so much for joining me. Thank you, Brian. It's been a pleasure. We're looking forward to the worldwide television premiere of Apollo eleven on CNN this summer, thanks so much for joining us, and be sure to tune in for our next episode we're going to take you inside the media moment.

"apollo" Discussed on Apollo 11: Beyond the Moon

"Of American exceptionalism for an entire generation not only can we relive it now fifty years later. I think we need to there's a lot, we need to learn from Paulo eleven so let's get right to it. Joining me now is the director of the Apollo eleven film. Todd Dulles Miller Todd. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me what you've done what your team has done took my breath away several times during the film. I wondered for you. What, what moment? What shot encapsulates the, the Apollo mission to you? Well, I think it's actually the launch of the Saturn five rocket. We worked for the better half of a year just to get that, right. So, anytime we would have, you know, five ten minutes, scenes. We would troop down to the Smithsonian. I max theater, and then we would get the astronauts, and their families in there. Is this what it sounded like is this, what it felt like get some immediate feedback and go back into the Sweden. You know make it work too. All right. So you were using their memories to make it as real as humanly possible. That's right. What's remarkable about this film? Of course. Is you didn't shoot a single piece of footage. This is entirely an archival project. What does that mean for someone like you? Well, I think it's it made it a little bit easier in the sense that we didn't have to go out and shoot it. We had so many great cinematographers working on this. I could rattle off their names. If you wanted me to, but the list goes on and on and on. And that's one of the advantages of dealing with archival projects. But also, and this one we had large format film, which was just unheard of to get, you know, access and, and to know that this stuff existed back then how is it possible that there are videos from one of the most important moment in human history that, that were somehow hidden away sitting on shelves where nobody knew? Well, if you put yourself in that time period during the Apollo mission, so you're dealing with the late sixties and seventies, they all happened in a very. Short amount of time. So the missions were happening sometimes one month after the other. So you had these cameraman down there that were shooting around the clock and a lot of that footage because it was all film footage, was being processed at labs down in Florida and they were getting sent away. There was duplication of those materials being sent to various NASA facilities in alternately, a lot of that footage, particularly the large format footage, sixty five millimeter seventy millimeters. All pre I max large format footage made its way into the national archives archive system. So we like to say that it's just an absolute testament to the artistry cinematography, but it's also a real testament to the archive, preservation system, working that these materials were kept in cold storage for decades and happily. You know, waiting for someone like you know, us, and our, our team to come along in our on our earth them. So our tax payer dollar's at work. That's correct value with the government archiving all of this. Cereal. And then it takes a corporation and filmmakers to come along and dig it up and into this, and it really the stars really aligned we just happen to be we're based in New York, and we were working with a post production facility that was dealing with some newer technology in the film scanning business when a lot of the companies lot of these post houses. We're getting out of that business. So we presented a new way of doing things in a cost effective manner. We were willing to take on all the materials, we didn't care how long it took I could speak for myself wanting to direct space film. If I was if this was going to be the one that I'd want to know every single frame of film footage soundbite still image. That was in existence, so we could tell the story and the most accurate way. And how many hours of footage, did you have at your disposal? So believe it or not, we're still quantifying it because it's still with our agreements with the national archives were were. Still in the process of dealing with the holdings in the collections. But all told we deal in real counts and also and data storage, and what's been digitized. So we're approaching about to PetO bytes of data. How much is that? It's a lot. A lot a lot of terabytes, but then realize we had about close about five hundred reels. And that includes a couple hundred of the large format reels. And then also all the sixteen the original sixteen millimeter in thirty five millimeter as well for people who aren't big movie buffs who, who don't know the lingo, what makes large format so exceptionally special if you can just imagine it's just it's pure math. If you look at traditional films that if you grew up in the eighties or nineties, traditionally, you were watching thirty five millimeter in the film, with was literally thirty five millimeters in length, so sixty five millimeters just double that once it's printed to seventy so it's just better quality. It's all chemistry, you know, develop when we came along, we actually people are familiar with the term four k we did a ton of testing with, with our host production facility on the materials we settled on eight k, which is actually four times as as much. Quality, but it's still the bandwidth was just absolutely brutal. The deal with we had to really develop workflows and stored solutions to be able to handle, you know, all the material it's so striking because the actual television broadcast on the day of the moon landing was really low quality you could barely tell it was going on at times. And when you show is this experience now fifty years later, it's as if we're there on the moon. It just speaks to the difference between that live capability fifty years ago versus something that can be edited and produced and perfect it, right? Yeah. I think the biggest response we've gotten is that people that live through at there were old enough to actually remember it just say, we had no idea that all of that was going on because that's what they remember. It's just watching it on a slow scan signal that was being being back to the earth from the moon black, and white lot of shadows scratchy audio. Yeah. And it but it's also a real. Testament to the people that were involved in that project. I mean to develop those technologies to be able, I mean that was, you know, that was groundbreaking stuff, not only the television signal, but obviously, you know, just the computer systems, you know, to be able to go to the moon, hundreds hundreds of astonishing feats. One of them was to be able to broadcast it live. And yet, what we see through your film, is that there were so many angles that viewers weren't seen at the time. So tell us about the movie making the idea, for example, to build suspense by using the metrics at the bottom of the screen where you sometimes display the speed the distance that time as the mission launched, and then landed on the moon, then returned to earth, where that idea come from. Well, we had a lot of really great people working on the, on the fella, just put together a really great team, most of everyone that worked on it, I'd worked with with for over a decade. So we all kind of felt like we were in our prime, when this, you know came along, we all kind of dealt in shorthand. The one division that was new to us was Nastase historian. Department, the historical division, led by Bill Berry, and we challenged them time and time again, to just try just to continually strive for accuracy, whether it was in the narrative of the film, or if it was throwing up a graphic dealing with velocity of the command module, it you know, as it was spinning around the earth. So a lot of that had been broadcast actually live by the public affairs officer, that was in Michigan control. So you had transcripts of that, but to try to match it with telemetry data as well. I'd never really seen that done in a kind of an entertaining way, I'd seen like, you know, the, the big cable channel, you know specials that, you know, the Uber nerd version of it, which I love, and I could say that because I'm an honorary member, but I just wanted it to feel like you were going on a, you know, on an adventure of sorts that was based in reality. We always joked in the team that this, you were we wanted to feel like it was Dunkirk in space, meaning that you win. You got dropped into a situation. You went there. There. And hopefully you made it back OK and the graphical reinforcement of velocity. How high they were and what they were doing to was always something. I wanted to articulate through graphics on the screen, Michael Collins. For instance, does this amazing maneuver, where after they they're in earth. Orbit. They liked to candle to go to the moon, and it's a big deal to light every time you light an engine and space. It's a big deal, but he lights it, and then they separate and their traveling twenty five thousand miles per hour. Plus, and he's, they separate from, you know, from the third stage he doesn't one eighty and then docks with both spacecraft traveling through the vacuum of space at that speed. And it's an incredible achievement in what they did. So you don't get that sense, a lot of times and fiction and nonfiction films that I'd seen before. So I wanted people to feel that and that was one way to depict, and I'm going to use that as a plug because Michael Collins is on our next episode. So we will talk with him about that maneuver, and so much more. Tell us about the various materials that you all brought in to, to make this. I mean the scene for example, that shows the physical touchdown of the spacecraft carrying buzzing Neil. How was that video footage? Generated who was at a series of photographs that were sped up or what was it? True video. I mean two of my favorite shots in cinema history. Forget about whether they're documentaries or fiction films are the landing of the lunar module during the Apollo eleven mission, which was shot by Buzz Aldrin through, you know with a sixteen millimeter camera out the limb window during touchdown. We show it in the film, as an unbroken shot. It always pains me when people break it up, it's beautiful. There's a reason why the astronauts themselves or American society of cinematographer members, my second favorite is Michael Collins shot. The lunar module coming off of the surface of the moon through the command module a window and they're just absolutely amazing. These guys trading for years on, you know, how to operate these systems, and it just wasn't the film Cam. It was also the stills the mission of Apollo eleven wasn't necessarily photograph. They were there to land safely on the moon and get home. But what they did do was still. They still photograph the thousand and twenty five images spread across seven magazines of seventy millimeter hustle, blah. Not to be confused with the film footage, but it's gorgeous. I mean and it stands the test of time. It's, you know, you throw that up on a big screen, or, and it's just it's just jaw dropping to see the, you know, the artistry that these astronauts had, and what kind of reactions have you been getting as this film is seeing both by by older, folks. Remember the mission by younger people who may not have any real sense of what happened on the Apollo missions..

"apollo" Discussed on Apollo 11: Beyond the Moon

"Welcome to Apollo eleven beyond the moon. I'm Brian Stelter, CNN's chief media correspondent, and an amateur space buff. I may superfan of the CNN film. Apollo eleven. It's already won a bunch of awards and a lot of you've already seen it in theaters across the country. We loved the film so much that we decide to do this podcast. To learn more about how the film was made and how the country was changed forever by putting a man on the moon. If you haven't seen the film, yet, you're gonna learn a lot about the mission and about movie making. And if you have seen the film, we're gonna take you behind the scenes with additional stories you've never heard Apollo eleven the film will have its worldwide television premiere this summer on CNN before we jump in today's episode with Apollo eleven's director Todd Douglas Miller. Let's just take a minute to set the scene of America nineteen sixty nine. Richard Nixon is president. The average income is eight thousand five hundred fifty dollars. Woodstock is about to become the musical event of the century Sesame Street is making its television debut and the draft for the Vietnam war is beginning. There was so much going on such a consequential moment in time. But this was the most important event of the mall. All script for man..

"apollo" Discussed on Liftoff

"I am so excited for less mutiny and more moon on this episode. I think we should jump right in. That's right. We don't want a moon Tany. Boy. All right now before we get to the mission. It's self. I want to talk about Saturn five because this is the first mission with satisfied and people onboard at first flew as a part of the crude Apollo four and Apollo six missions those were the tests with no people on top of a giant scary rocket Apollo eight would be the first time astronauts road, the saddened five into space. Of course, the Apollo six seven five as we've talked about in a past episode experienced several issues during its flight, including a violent pogo oscillation two minutes into flight that would have pretty seriously injured. Crew if they were on board after it's troublesome. I stage of been shed the S two second-stage began to experience its own problems having to engine shutdown due to a ruptured fuel line and my personal favorite cross wired connections between the Motors and onboard instrumentation. Yeah, they were just trying to hot wire there. These issues caused as you might expect major concerns within NASA. The pogo would have been strong enough to put the crew in dangerous. I said they could have been injured or worse. Premature engine shutdown. Also, not good could make getting into the right orbit for lunar injection difficult. And then you can't go to the moon due to the tight timelines where there's a goal to be on the moon by the end of the decade assembly of the Apollo eight Saturn five began in December nineteen sixty seven just a few weeks after Apollo four. So by the time Apollo six flew and those problems were uncovered the Saturn fives Lord stages actually already been stacked within the vehicle assembly building. So NASA with the amazing amount of work d- stack them stack. These guys take them back apart to address the shortcomings, but the rocket was rejoined in the fall of nineteen sixty eight that's a bad meeting. Right. It's like, oh, we actually need to take this thing back apart. So we can fix it. Yeah. Yeah. But that was that was why a politics was was not good. It was not good. It was good in that. They saw all these problems and they got to fix them. But it was bad in that they had to start taking rockets apart in order to do that. And you talk about the end of the decade. Yeah. We're talking about a year away. That's the deadline to get to the moon. So things are tightening up. Now, the rocket wasn't the only Apollo hardware causing delays, the lunar module was behind schedule. And in August of sixty eight NASA announced the testing, the limb would not be part of Apollo eight. That was a real bummer as we'll find out for one of the crewmembers NASA administrator Thomas Paine said that they plan for eight only to use the Apollo command service module to CSM pending the successful flight of Apollo.

"apollo" Discussed on TechStuff

"Welcome to tech stuff. I am more host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer without stuff works in the of all things tech and we are in fact continuing our journey into space or at least the history of space travel. And I know we talked a lot about space. We're going to be talking more about space for the next few episodes because it's a fascinating topic and I love looking into it and there's so much to talk about the this episode. We're going to focus on the later Apollo missions, and we will also switch over and talk about the development of the Soyuz spacecraft, the Soviet space craft that was intended to be a competitor to Apollo and is a workhorse for space travel. Now. I mean, it's the only spacecraft spoiler alert that will actually bring people back and forth between the international. Space station in upcoming episodes. I'll talk more about launch vehicles which we frequently will refer to as rockets. And I will also talk about the space shuttle program. And then after that, we will move onto non space related topics. I know talked a lot about it, but I could've gone into even more detail about the various spacecraft and their subsystems and how they all work. But I realize that it would be overkill and I didn't want to go absolutely nuts. So let's pick up where we left off, which was after the return of the Apollo eleven capsule now Apollo eleven wasn't just a phenomenal achievement in science engineering, astronaut training, although it was definitely all of those things, but it was also effectively the end of the space race that had started when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik into orbit and put that out as the first man made satellite earth orbit. The Soviets had one, those early victories Sputnik being the first one, but also they were the. I put a human into orbit. They were the first to put a woman into space, but the Americans had managed to be the first to dock spacecraft in orbit and no one else was able to put people on the moon. Although the Soviets did try to do that to talk more about those efforts later in the Sepah sewed Apollo eleven pretty much sealed the deal. And after that success, the space race was affectively over symbolically. It would not be over for a few more years, but the Apollo project still had several more missions before it would end Apollo eleven was not the end of the Apollo program. Apollo twelve was the second mission to have a lunar landing. The crew would deploy tech called the Apollo lunar surface experiments package or all set a l. SAP this was a collection of geophysical instruments. Apollo eleven had a more modest collection of experiments that they carried that one was called the early Apollo surface experiments package. Edge or e Sep that one had to official experiments and then two additional experiments that were not officially part of e Sep. This is where I start looking into NASA records, and I say, what's the difference between officially being part of something and not officially being part of something, but still going along for the ride and being left on the moon. But maybe that's just me getting confused by semantics NASA on Apollo. Eleven was mostly focused on landing people on the frequent moon and then getting them back home safely. So science was sort of a secondary priority, right? It was not the highest priority for NASA for that for the Apollo eleven mission. They had some scientific experiments they wanted to include, but mostly they just wanted to concentrate on getting people on the moon and then getting them back home safely. The purpose of all sap was to monitor the environment of an a region close to the Apollo landing. Site for at least a year after the end of the visit to the moon, Apollo seventeen version of all set was designed to to operate for two years. And so they're, they Apollo twelve. One was just the first also all of the other following Apollo missions would bring similar packages along some of them worked for up to eight years before mission control would shut down all remaining all set projects on September..
