"The moon. By good before. They got this great pitcher on this thing. Astronaut's life has been good to you several years back. You flu around the Earth nearly seven times on board Gemini Eight. Then you are the command pilot for Apollo nine. When NASA tack to take the lead on Apollo fifteen, you were thrilled. But now sadly, it's nearly time to go home. You and fellow astronaut James Irwin have been on the moon for three days, but it seems there's never enough time up here. You drive the rover out a little bit so that it's TV. Cameras can catch the launch of the lunar module from the Moon's surface and back to Earth, but you and Irwin have no intention of leaving. Not yet. There's one more task. A task the men on the ground in Houston no nothing about. they'd give me a call on your president. Clear. Ohio. Okay. And they. We do not have our TV yet. You Might WanNA check TV remote. So. Cleaning up the rover at all, and you don't want cameras rolling yet, either while the Rovers TV cameras still down, you sneak several yards away to perform your task. You don't have much time, so you have to make quick work. Once, you're a safe distance off. About Twenty feet, north of the rover reached into the large pocket of your spacesuit and pull out two items, a small plaque and a tiny aluminum object a little over three inches high. You Bend Down Place both items firmly in the moon's dust. You take a moment to consider the gravity of this moment or lack thereof. As you stand on the lunar surface, hundreds of thousands of miles from planet earth you can hardly comprehend the true immensity of it all just how small you really are. You close your eyes and say a quick prayer, thanks. Right. Okay. You get the TV camera going and the antenna aligned then make the short moonwalk back to base and prepare for the flight hall. As the lunar module lifts off, you watch out the window as the moon's rocky surface slowly fades away. You are a lucky man. Not everyone was. The astronaut in that story was Colonel David. Scott prior to launch of Apollo, Fifteen Scott and a Belgian artist named Paul. Who Doc came up with a bold idea to put a piece of art on the Moon. Van Hooydonk made the figuring which he called the fallen asleep. Scott's knocked the small sculpture and a commemorative plaque on board. Apollo fifteen in his pocket. The plaque commemorated astronauts including eight of Scott's friends who are known to have died in the space race, not just American astronauts, Soviet cosmonauts as well. It was a symbolic gesture, but had demonstrated that perhaps the tensions between the Soviet and American space programs were subsiding. Perhaps those tensions were even giving way to come rotary to the men and women who traveled to space. They were all part of fellowship that extended beyond the boundaries of nation-states. Just a few years later, the space race would officially come to an end through another act of reconciliation galactic handshake. In July nineteen, seventy five three astronauts on Apollo spacecraft linked up with two cosmonauts in the Soyuz capsule when the hatch connecting the two ships opened commander Thomas Stafford greeted, cosmonaut Alexi off with a friendly handshake. Stafford expressed hope that our joint work in space serves for the benefit of all countries and peoples on the earth. The commanders exchange, kind words and gifts. They signed international documents. They even shared a meal. A few hours later, the astronauts said goodbyes return to their ships and went their separate ways. The Apollo Soyuz test project was the first joint space flight between the Americans and the Soviets. After the fall of the Soviet Union space cooperation between the two countries significantly increased and to this day the International Space Station contains both Russian and American astronauts. The space race started with a sprint to track down von Braun climax with a race to the moon and ended with a friendly embrace. It took decades and cost billions of dollars, and the lives of many brave souls. But in its infancy space exploration was nothing more than a dream, and not just the dream of one person, the dreams of multitudes from von Braun to carol off to Kennedy and Johnson and millions of Americans and Soviets in between. The nineteen fifties, sixties and seventies, the dream of space fostered fierce competition, but in the end it also helped to superpowers transcend their rivalry, if only for a moment. In a story about space, it seems only fitting to give the last word to the brave man who took the first step. In two thousand ten, Neil Armstrong Road, some question why Americans should return to them after all they say we have already been there I find that mystifying. You would be as if sixteenth century monarchs proclaimed that we do not need to go to the new world. We have already been there. Whereas if President Thomas Jefferson announced eighteen three that Americans need not go west of the Mississippi. Lewis and Clark expedition has already been there. Americans have.

All right, we're back from the break. Now, make sure to pick up Dr David warm flashes book. It's called moon. An illustrated history from ancient myths to the colonies of tomorrow. It's a really, really cool book, really cool, illustrations, it's breathtaking so pick that up Amazon, there's a link in the show notes for you. And now back that Dr David warm flesh and more about the space. I'll lander. Yeah. The privy delay sheet, which is means in the beginning of, and it's the first word of the of the bible in Hebrew, the bible the book of Genesis, and so Dow was, I guess about the idea that this is the beginning of the lunar exploration for Israel, and for private companies him to that it also interestingly refers back to the Apollo program because during the Apollo eight mission was the first time that, that human beings, left earth's, gravitational realm and went in orbit around the moon, and it was very risky mission. And a happened at the end of nineteen sixty eight which was a horrible year around the world. And especially in the United States there were two. Major assassinations aligning every salvations major, but to assess nations of major highly visible figures, Martin Luther King in, in April of sixty eight assassinated on the same day that there was a, a launch test launch of the Saturn, five vehicle the second time they ever launched two seven five. Now's the Apollo six mission, and it got basically no media attention because several hours later king was SAS initiated. So that's not what was on the deeming news. It was all that the king's assassination and in a couple months later in June, Robert Kennedy was assassinated. The brother of the ready assassinated president John Kennedy and the it was detected offensive in Vietnam. Major escalation of Vietnam. And this was what people are thinking about everybody knew someone of family where there is someone who was killed or injured in Vietnam. Tom, the public was not really happy. And then at the end of nineteen sixty eight three men went to the moon in hollow eight they were the moon and was at Christmas time, and they were told well do something appropriate in ended know what to do. And somebody one of their wives and found out something appropriate to do, when they, they read from the bread the, the story of, of Genesis, which in Hebrew, that's for sheet. That's the name of the probe that went to the moon. They read it in English, of course. But yeah, these three astronauts reading greening the Genesis to the whole world, and it was like something that was just really global because everybody wasn't a Christmas story, that's only going to appeal. To just one segment of humanity is a much more broadly appealing story. Everybody knows that start. So the time of this recording is may seventeenth, and tomorrow, may eighteenth is when Apollo ten launched it returned back to earth. On may twenty sixth now kit you inform us a little bit about the Apollo ten mission. Well, this, this is the mission that gets no love the very emission that when ripe before Powell eleven. So what happened here was it was address rehearsal, and you had three guys sent to the moon and this is the first time they have all the equipment that Apollo eleven would have. So in a emissions before that Apollo eight went to the moon where the command and service module, which was enough to go to the moon in orbit, the moon and come back to earth. Although it was really, really. Dangerous because there were so many unknowns, it was the first time that a, a command module would be re entering the atmosphere under the same conditions that you'd be were re entering earth's atmosphere, when you came back from any mission to the move. They didn't do through a supposedly progression mission where they winning go all the way to go to a very high orbit, and they would come back and reenter the atmosphere at that same velocity that you'd be entering. And at the same angle as you're returning from the moon. That's what Frank Borman and his crew were originally supposed to do as Apollo nine but they were switched to be called Apollo eight and launched before the mission that would then be called all night because the Central Intelligence agencies CIA got some photographs showing what looked to be like, a massive ROY. Rocket in the Soviet Union looked like the Soviet Union was going to send people on a circum lunar flight that send people around the moon. So they get went off the planning charts. It was no plan for any mission like this and said warming and crew. How about you guys go to the in the end of nineteen sixty eight and so they did it, but the lunar excursion module wasn't ready yet, so that made it even more dangerous because that could have been a lifeboat, if anything, had happened has as it actually did become a lifeboat on the later mission policy, teen those astronauts, how to use the lunar module as a lifeboat, and then Apollo nine was in lower Dorbec, but with a lunar excursion more agile suit, those a lot of testing on that. And then Apollo ten they had a lunar excursion module, and they went to the moon. And so you had three guys in that mission. You had the commander Thomas Stafford. He had the command module pilot, John Young who would stay in the command module. And then you had gene Cernan as the lunar module harlot. And the idea was to, to get everything ready certain and Stafford word of fly the lunar module will down to announce a tude almost two eight nautical miles, which is a doubt the same altitude of any typical commercial passenger flight flying save from New York to LA, you be at that altitude imagine going down from lunar orbit to that altitude, you've got your lunar excursion module, and your mission is to fly over the area where two months later Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, would be learning and you're supposed to scope out the territory and collect data and then go back and never win a moon. That's what they did. Imagine. Queen Isabella sending Columbus across the ocean say

"AM, seven sixty talk and breaking. Sometimes I'll get even some good natured jabs from our staff say, well, you know, you're going to space camp, you're so into the space thing to be an astronaut. Was a possible fifty years ago. It would have been great or people. That's not. Not just something to be viewed as the style, or whatever it is a living breathing part of where we go is a nation and internationally and exploration or we just say contemplate or navels on the couch. So the good news is we're back talking about space. Again, a lot of things going on SpaceX, and and blue origin and Boeing and all the talk in the plans now doing a moon landing again artists is the is the project announced that in the next few years if politicians goof it up it'd be going back and it also the first American female astronaut to set foot on the moon as well. So a lot of things and things like SpaceX when you lot musk shot, the rocket up there with the dummy and the tesla right and been captured attention people said well, look at that age de so it's not just about isn't that fun and take a ride or whatever we benefit from the space programs of the past every day, we benefit from GPS everyday all of this is. Rated. It look at our cellphones. The fun fact is you look at a cell phone. That has more computing power lot more than the Apollo astronauts had computer wise in the command module on the way to the moon. And we got to take it for granted. Like, wow. But but we should have done more for people here on earth. There were four hundred thousand plus men and women working on the space program the Apollo program alone. That's kind of a lot of bang for the buck and somebody wonder stands that more than anybody. Somebody who lived that experience, and is as vibrant as ever. General Tom Stafford to former air force officers still in his heart. Of course, general test pilot NASA astronaut among other things missions of Gemini, six Gemini, nine Apollo ten Apollo. So us got really close to the Russians before it was fashionable type about that coming up in a second. But a polygon anniversary is like now fifty years ago now, Tom Stafford and gene Cernan, John Young were busy preparing for for the launch on me. Eighteenth general, Debbie back. Welcome. Oh bark. Good to talk to you. Good. Hope. Things are good San Diego. Absolutely. It'd be more fun. When I go over to see you and Oklahoma this weekend. We'll talk about that for the big fish fiftieth anniversary celebration of politics, but fifty years ago now what what kinds of things were going just here. Just a handful of days away from launch dress rehearsal. Oh, I remember a lot of real. Well, we were going over checklist. Fly the simulator touching on critical parts of the basic both literal, and they command module up to a day before lunch. So all of that. And it wasn't like he started to you know, month and a half before launch. I mean, this is making right. And you gotta get selected in there. A lot of really great people including way back in the day. They had what was called the mercury thirteen. I mean there were there were some women as you know. But people are certainly discovered different parts of of all this in terms of the process, but I certain generation you guys are the Rockstars of could say our era any baby-boomer knows that. But we were doing big things to be prepared to do big things again. That's gotta be pretty exciting. Is that that you see it? Maybe now. I think it will be exciting, and you know, very happy. President Trump is out of gold. Lanny's boots vote female male at by twenty twenty four. We had this going before President Bush senior, George H W Bush said or twentieth. Anniversary versus the writings are too late night. Here space is big celebration. After the turn of the century. We ought to return to the Mony said this time say the baby the second decade an expedition of ours. So we started out that bath ended up being tasked to do a study. It was really great effort year report is I suppose coiled air. So everything was going great. President Bush got election by the Clinton, President Clinton said that was Bush's growing your micro passing. Pure politics is Kansas national. We can't do it. Like, you gotta have consists. Well, you know, the politics and always get in the way. And that's how that's been the history along the way here General, Tom Stafford with us, I keep thinking back to some of these every mission as you know, the maybe our listeners don't every mission that NASA did for mercury Jimmy to Apollo in. And then the space shuttle, of course, with a whole bunch one hundred thirty five missions, and then all of what's to come. But every mission in those pioneer era years was essential. You don't get to the next step without whatever the mission was at the time. I think about when you and Wally Sharar, dear friend who passed away a few years ago. And lived here in San Diego for many years when you in volley were there atop Gemini six rockets built in San Diego back in the day. And you get down to the countdown. There's initiative, and then everything shuts down and that would be where you've trained to go time to check. But I remember Wally saying that he felt it in his, but which is very eloquent way. I think we're fine. Did you think we're finding that point? Did you want to check? No. Well. We we've been to so many simulations we knew. Marking the seat of our pants. We had lifted off. So we had the signals we'd lifted off via we had SR seventy one Blackbird each action. Sheesh. Wow, defied. We just anything about one hundred percent bureaucracy. So that would have been so get your two hundred percent. Oh to think what happened probably to again those coming. Which leads me to the Jimmy nine thing. We're a friend gene Cernan last man on the moon, you Gina there. And he was supposed to be the second American spacewalk. He's going to go out untethered, and it all went to, you know, where he called it the spacewalk from hell, and I remember years ago, the late gene Cernan, telling me about how he's watching TV or something because you Tom Stafford as his as his cO mission, the astronauts that were kept saying we had a plan for Gina. We have plan, and you're out some panel this way, you're on your panel somewhere. Well, we would just kind of if you couldn't get him back in because everything's too bloated. We would've turned him into a satellite genes. Like, excuse me. He he kind of had a hunch Disney. Well. Takes too long should be in. What happened? What did sleepy goby, my shoot up Ruben mobile mobile. Yeah. Don't bet sixteen that is. But dick said we can't afford to leave him out there. Ties again, what about that? I said. Sick. I gotta have the hatch open to bring him back in. That's how and what that means. We've never simulated ever. So it's kinda funny. Of course, we're have communication days. When you go out to watch that joke show up. They're all finally get plugged in. To the comm systems on the spacecraft. Jimmy. I sure hey, Tom, what was cockatiel about solo talk for a second. I said, Gino, he said he hoped would have a real good place. General Tom Stafford with his legendary astronaut Gemini, six Gemini, nine Apollo ten and fellow Sawyers going onto a politician. And that was when NASA stop letting cute names to be applied to do command, module's and lunar module. So they command module's Charlie Brown, and the lunar module Snoopy, and here was the launch of Mateen fifty years ago this Saturday when John Young, and and you Tom Stafford and gene Cernan went to do everything, but the landing so the two months later that Apollo eleven Neil Armstrong of Buzz Aldrin, step out as the first humans on the on the lunar surface. And today, I love the fact that it looks like Snoopy is the only lunar module vet still hasn't turned to embers up there at somewhere of weird orbit around the sun. Is that right? That's right. She only litter or part of the about your shelf. I market will fly forever until this galaxy cry. That'd be comes by the earth every four years. Now, we attempted to when you get down within nine miles of the lunar surface. Again, everything was the dress rehearsal for the moon landing. Just just two months later were you tempted to go, well, we're this close. Let's let's take down though. Sure people asset we had a heavyweight you who are too heavy to land. What was that by design because NASA new you guys might? It was way to deliver modular. Sue, heavy Massa gave ten thousand dollars a pound for every they could pull out of the decent. That's a lot about those. The first light weight lodge. They kept getting lighter, and then they stretch tax or, Hugh, but he landed with only seventeen seconds. We had zero would have been out of you. Well, well, and the rest is the rest is history, and they get the moon landing with people do the terms of those six that we did as a nation hard to believe it's been fifty years day, actually, not quite as long from the last landing. But fifty from the first that none of that happens without the kind of thing that you did on that mission fifty years ago. And I think one of the more interesting he while I say even more interesting missions was a policy as a nineteen seventy five where we had Russians not exactly cooperating with us. We had some detente going. I have had some some cooperation. But here was the first ever. US and the Soviets at the time coming together, and you got to be pretty close to the Russians. Well, before it was fashionable in these days of Russia. Russia russia. You were colluding with Russians. Well, you're training with them. Knows as we call them Soviet. They're all Russia, and it was the Soviet Union. I the Cold War each country had four to six thousand nuclear weapons as you AB. They show a couple of dollars tax go up. You know, and and you know, huge armies tying. That we did showed two countries could reach a common goal and work together. And it worked super when I shopped hands Liana food, I act they kind of said that was the end of the Cold War and far human space. It wasn't as the basis of what we later on shoveled beer. And now, the international space to read from Putin airlines until we get some new things going on there Thomas, Stafford former Gemini and Apollo astronaut and really still always an American icon and test pilot general air force. The other part of the story that I love is the fact that not only did you have that that breaking down of the Cold War and Alexei Leonov who is the first man for human to walk in space. He became great friends. You still are you go over there? Sometimes you go hunting. And in fact, on one trip came back with a couple of kids you adopted from Russia, which is pretty admirable not what you do in later seasons in life. Right bar. I didn't know twenty eight years later after. That may be about a life. Second wife job do rushing off just commend convince kids joy to our life. And how old are the kids now. Well, the oldest was twenty eight laster. She SMU this one is just waiting for graduated from Yale. Well as fantastic, and and and again blessing. Here's you keep doing what you love to do is you do and and helping next generations understand the importance of the space program and the Apollo missions. And so forth. It just history. General it's why with your museum the Stafford museum in Weatherford, Oklahoma.

"Crews there were thomas stafford john young new gene cernan and they were all veterans of the gemini program which preceded the polo so what were the rules and a call to tell stafford was commander on this flight so he was the one kind of calling all the shots gene cernan was the lunar module pilot suit with tom stafford and jeans earning who actually went down close to the surface and that left john young at the command module so pilot which meant that he was the first person in history to orbit the moon alone in the command module which meant you know for the forty five minutes at you're on the far side of the moon there is no communication you are very much alone he was the first person to experience that she she also would have been the person if something had happened and they they crushed on the moon but he would have to come home alone yeah that's that's part of apollo missions we don't talk about is the reality that the yeah everyone talks about the command module pilot gets the bum rap 'cause he doesn't get they got in the mail but at the same time he only person who safety and returned to earth and guaranteed yeah now what's interesting about these three astronauts is that a both john young gene cernan went back to the moon young on apollo sixteen ensuring was the very last man on the moon on apollo seventeen so they went to the moon twice and then tom suffered went on an did de apollo soyuz project which was the first cooperative project between americans and the soviet union yeah three really dining really enviable careers is astronaut astronaut john young josh you one of my heroes because he's he only astronaut who flew on gemini on apollo went to the moon twice walked on the moon and then was the commander of the very first space shuttle mission quite a guy here okay so in a politician did come very close to the moon we have some tape here what that was like let's hear from a very excited tom stafford in gene cernan we go and we doubt among them charlie cook up are landing right are death and taking pictures here it's a fantastic site the crater the new traders throw out very very light light almost white grey by comparison to the dirtier counter whites in grades and brown right over there in another appeared to be almost every press crater there's visible boehner's both down in homicides around but the hook down that these guys were former fighter pilot and landed on aircraft carriers that's how they landed appeal hook down a grab a cable there so there were circles of the movie could have landed really closed actually i found it interesting point of comparison so nine mile through the back forty seven thousand feet a commercial flight is between thirty six thousand and forty two thousand feet so imagine looking down to the moon from a commercial plane close they were among yeah and and when he says down among them human doubt among the mountain peak or sell they are flying through the valleys how how frustrating do you think it was for them to be that close the lending but not actually wanting to go back up again probably immensely frustrating although to speak to them they would never admit to that end they could actually have landed on the moon there's always the speculation what would have happened if they'd gone rogue and just gone to the landing 'cause they had everything ready to go they were actually short changed on fuel in the at that stage of of the lunar module newbie didn't have enough you'll get off the moon so they landed in gone against mission orders which let's be honest a bunch of military guys would never do that they might have done it to their death unfortunately though leah good thing they kept that urge you to check now let's talk about snoopy be a lunar lander because there was recent news about possibly seeing it because they just discarded after they finished with it yeah which is lucky thing for future generations 'cause most it'd be apollo at the lunar lander athens agents were actually directed to smash into the moon for the sake of taking seismic measurement and apollo ten because they had landed there was nothing on the moon to measure the impact so instead of putting it towards the moon.

"It may be the case that this American would act as a refuse for these mega mama's doing the late places in Holocene also considering that the Hampton pressure from the initiatives, people was probably not very high. So we imagine to depaz on a scenario where people and place a seed megaphone. China where coexisting independent bus for several millennium. What did you discover that changing line of reasoning? Well, we reaced a decide co coupla board. They where we found clear evidence of the handing of a giant on his loss. We have to sort of knives associated with bones of these giant kind of slows me to you. We had dated this bones. And we got dates between seven to nine thousand before present by the content of collagen, Dino that they're gonna part of the bone which is data with material was thirty low and the deposited ecological deposit was below and stratagem with very high or gunning contents. So now with Dr Thomas Stafford and and Dr Emily same they develop new on very sophisticated methodology. To pre treat the sub both he newer. They're to separate. What is really collagen from the bone, and what is other systems like humic acid coming from this inorganic sediments about the delay? Which would contaminate the sample saying the previous samples that you took were contaminated than that the radiocarbon dates or his accurate as they could be which was giving you that other range of date. Yes. You got the point. Megan we are saying that because of the low content of collagen that this sample hat due to the genetic process. Very common in the pampas. The premiums are the cabin date probably dated call Tim, plus humid, and fully acid, and it did happen in this side with suspect that the same would happen in the other side quick produce early Holocene dates so now your new dates are saying that these. Mega-fauna did not persist in the Holocene since they didn't make it to twelve thousand years before. Now, exactly we are saying that given the fact that we have these accurate and precise date with suspect about the other early Holocene dates in pampas and it had happened. Then the time of coexistence between humans and megaphone reduce loss reuse to one to two thousand years instead of five to six thousand years ride the time span get shorter. And that case is increasing possibility that humans actually had some impact, right? Some influence in the extensions of these places in Fono. Is there a chance that there any other Pleistocene mega-fauna that could have persisted into the Holocene or do you not see any evidence of that given? This new way of dating I think that it is one on animal the which is called the tattoo see Guinea, which you said become a dealer, but number b but is a bigger than the current contemporary Armadillo and this animal which weighed about fifty sixty or seventy kilos is a chance that this Medina law survive, but in regards to the big animals like jam gonna slows or Lipton's the really big one. Yeah. The real big one to one who weighed more than one tonne way at Buca very we ever suspicious about that possibility. But again, Megan I have to say that we have to rebate all the other sites now ride with this with this new methodology because we are suspecting that the samples were contaminated, but we cannot be completely sure until we perform a serious anew rather cavern dates following the same the dollar. So with this Armadillo was. Not hunted by people is that a reason that it could have persist noise was handed by people, but because of the smaller size, it has more higher tippety rates. So maybe it was handed, but because of the high rebuked red compared with the Liptons, for example, it seemed that it will probably able to survive and also maybe was more flexible to the climatic change the next step with your research is re dating some of these samples that you took from steady sites in the past. Is there also other areas that you want to look into? Yes. I mean, we we are trying to reestablish some of the sites. It seems that the pampas is one of the best places to test this hypothesis because we have an extended grassland with precipitation on a huge variety of displaced us in mega bama's, much more. For example, done in Patagonia where you have very good preservation of bone indicates..

I think of something you're very confined space. Oh. Be good for everyone's mental health. Do you want to hear so many even worse ages ago instead of an instrument being played in order to get the astronauts to calm down? They would play in the international space station, just to calm them elevator music. I used to just be played. Imagine being stuck in an elevator. That's what it would have been still. They still play the music sometimes. So the music wakes up in the building is. Picked by the council communicate. So also is the Capcom who's an astronaut who's on the ground. So they don't have responsibility for the music that they pick to wake people up. Surely, I think they do pick things they like. And they do the ask, you know. It's going to be a Paul McCartney song. They might ask Paul McCartney to record a Hulu wake up here in space. And then they wake up and. Good. Yeah. And it would be songs sometimes relevant to certain missions. So when Chris Hadfield had to do his first spacewalk he was the first Canadian believe to do that his wife was able to pick that morning song. And she picked song was dear to him in the lyrics suggested going out into the frontiers. And so it's it's quite a cool tradition voice. Still actually started another band while he was in space max, q he had on earth and up in space. He had Astro Hawaii. That was the name of the man and it had five of the astronauts as well as cosmonauts and so the instruments included to Qatar two flutes, which I now know what that is. And an improvised drum which was played using metallic unit that usually stores Russian cosmonauts feces. So that was there drama. They've had so many out in space. They're all kind of music lovers on even from really early flight. So nine hundred sixty five was a classic. You know back before Nassar Sunday clamping down on smuggling stuff into space. Everyone just took loads of shell there. And we'll share a junior and Thomas Stafford snuck bells in a hormone occur up and they'd practice what they were going to do before.

"Moon, the command service module and lunar modules, separated and performed a station keeping lunar orbit, which meant that they were traveling not together because they were separate, but in an orbit where they could have a rendezvous if necessary. One Estra naught. John Young stayed aboard the command module as pilot. The other two astronauts Thomas Stafford and Eugene Cernan boarded the lunar module and that would simulate what the crew of Apollo eleven would do in preparation for a lunar landing. The command Ma. Module would stay in orbit around the moon and the other two astronauts would get to go down on the lunar surface, not not with Apollo ten, but with Apollo eleven. So an Apollo ten. They just simulated this by going into orbit around the moon, but not actually landing on an after sixteen lunar orbits the two modules docked again, and Stafford and Cernan came back aboard, the command service module with young, and then they jettisoned the lunar module enter turned home. The command module. By that on that particular mission had the nickname Charlie Brown and the lunar module's nickname was Snoopy, which I thought was cute. The oppo tints spacecraft completed, all its mission objectives and performed a maneuver to enter transact injection came back home without major incident and splashdown on may twenty six thousand nine hundred sixty nine. And so the stage was set for a real lunar landing. And now we're finally up to Apollo eleven all the Apollo missions were historic, but this is the one that most people talk about if they're not talking about Apollo thirteen, which.
