Apollo Moon Missions

The Apollo Moon Missions were a series of NASA missions that put 12 men on the moon through six space flights during 1961-1975. This category is for questions and answers about those missions.


Almost all of the early astronauts were military (and some civilian) test pilots.
Electrical fault on an O2 canister caused an explosion in the oxygen tank which also damaged the second tank. This left the spacecraft virtually crippled, as the oxygen tanks were necessary for the supply of electrical power. . CO2 scrubbers became saturated by change in mission profile. The Lunar...
Niel Armstrong said "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

To take core samples of the lunar surface.
The first moon landing by Apollo 11 was on July 20, 1969. The final moon landing by Apollo 17 was on December 11, 1972. The Apollo 17 Lunar Module departed the Moon on December 15, 1972, and no human has set foot on the Moon since.
Apollo 11 was the first manned spacecraft to land on the Moon, July20-21, 1969. Five other missions, Apollo 12 and 14 thru 17, alsomade lunar landings from 1970 to 1972.

The flight time to the Moon for the Apollo missions (1968-1972) wasabout 3 days.
Rescuing the three astronauts of Apollo 13 was arguably the mostdifficult rescue mission in all of human history. It showed thathumankind is not willing to give up on those in need of help. For afew days, the whole world banded together in support of these threeindividuals -- even the USSR, whom the...
Curiosity because its there and to find develop and take advantage of Military and economic opportunity's.
Apollo 12 traveled to the moon and back to earth.
The Apollo 8 crew were the first to orbit the moon. They took video and pictures then returned to Earth.

Well, for starters, they went in the lunar morning, when it hadn't warmed up yet. Remember, a lunar day is about 14 Earth days, so morning lasts a good long time! Second, there is no air on the Moon, so the only things that get hot are physical objects like the astronauts and the lunar soil. The...
Not in the traditional sense--there were no showers. There were the equivalent of sponge bath available. This wasbasically a wet-nap that astronauts could use to clean with.
Apollo 18, 19, and 20's missions were cancelled because of the lack of funds so they decided to cancel those missions and save money.
The first man to land on the moon was Neil Armstrong , in July 1969.
One of the most complete resources for the moon missions is http://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/frame.html
I believe they recycle water from their urine and sweat and allother liquid excreted into drinking water.
It was called Columbia after Jules vernes novel.
The gas buildup during the Apollo 13 mission was a problem in both the CM and LM. The reason the Apollo 13 movie focuses on the LM is because that was where the crew most of their time, keeping an eye on the systems that were running and trying to stay warm. Also, because the CM was shut down, the...
When the Apollo 11 astronauts landed on the moon, the president of the U.S.A was Richard Nixon.
Three. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins.
The trip to the moon had to be taken as the President John Kennedy had set a target of landing a man on the moon and to bring him back safely , before december 311969.
Total mission duration from launch to splashdown: 8 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes.
The Apollo 11 mission sent the lunar module "Eagle" to the moon.
So the Americans could beat the Russians to the moon.
When you say the 'Space Race' I assume that you mean the race to the moon that happened during the 1960s between the USA and the USSR (now Russia), as, nowadays there is much more co-operation between the nations who have a space programme. This 'space race' was extremely important because it not...
Total EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity) time was 2 hours, 36 minutes, 40 seconds.
He put a American flag and said That's one step for man a giant leap for mankind.
Cape Canaveral, Florida, launch pad 39-A aboard the Saturn V on July 16, 1969.
That's a hard number to state with any real accuracy. The first three missions took place on foot, making the walked distance slightly easier to chart, but the final three had LRV's, so while they certainly did walk quite a bit, the distance was not captured or recorded. the following distances...
Apollo 11 landed on the moon on July 20 th 1969.
Apollo 11 returned to the earth on 24/7/1969.
If you are asking how much it cost to develop, the final cost was around US$38,000,000 (1971 dollars). If you are asking about mass, it had a mass 463 lbm.
It was sent to orbit the moon twice and land safely.
struggles that neil armstrong had?
No,he never went back to the moon
No Neil Armstrong never returned to the moon, after Apollo 11 actually he retired shortly as a astronaut.
Neil Armstrong helped his community by visiting the moon and making it back.
The Command module was named Columbia, and the lunar module was called Eagle after Jules Vernes novel From the earth to the moon.
People can walk on the moon wearing a specially designed space suit such as NASA used for the Apollo moon missions. The suit contains the environmental conditions necessary and also the weight to offset the weak gravity of the moon.
Rock, core, and soil samples, as well as many hundreds of pictures and many hours of video
On July 20, 1969 4:18 p.m EDT, Neil Armstrong was the first man tostep on the moon. There he spoke his famous words "That's one small step for man, onegiant leap for mankind."
They collected core, rock and soil samples, they took pictures, and they set up long term science experiments
The asro nauts landed on the moon, that faces earth, as they do not land on the dark side, as they would be out of rado track with earth.
They landed on the area called Tranquility Base.
Some landed in the Mare, some landed in the highlands.
Apollo 8, launched December 21, 1968, entering lunar orbit December 24, 1968.
Apollo 13 was sent to the moon to collect a metric ton of moon rocks for analysis back on earth
No. The Moon has gravity, about 1/6 as much as the Earth does. This means that things weigh less and fall more slowly than on Earth. If they didn't have to wear space suits, they could jump higher and run faster than on Earth. One astronaut tried to see how high he could jump in his bulky spacesuit....

All of the Apollos used the same fuels, although they used two different boosters. Spacecraft (CSM) - Aerozine 50 and Nitrogen Tetroxide LM - Aerozine 50 and Nitrogen Tetroxide The launch vehicles used RP-1 (basically kerosene) and liquid oxygen for the first stage and liquid hydrogen and...
While in space, it was just folded up, attached to the LM. After they are on the Moon, the astronauts pulled a lanyard, causing it to unfold. Then they released it, got it ready, and used it for exploring. One of the LRV's (Lunar Roving Vehicles) went over 17 miles!
Commander) James A Lovell, (Lunar module pilot) Fred W. Haise, and (Command module pilot) John L 'Jack' Swigert.
Apollo 11 landed at the sea of tranquality.

Most of the huge Saturn V rocket used in the Apollo 11 mission was destroyed. This was all planned as most of the rocket ship was just a container for the enormous amount of fuel necessary for the mission. The only parts that actually went to the moon were the command module, the service module and...
A variety of people have, inlcuding an old Chinese emperor who strapped a variety of fire crackers to his throne.....he was never seen again.
if you're asking me, i would say because i am not rich and im not in the NASA I have a really good memory and would remember landing on the moon.

As there is no wind on the moon. The footprints will stay for ages.
It was called the Apollo and Soyuz program, in this program both the spacecrafts docked with each other, and the crew changed over.
To date, no black astronauts have walked on the moon.
I believe they discovered a planet a couple of years ago, that they named Krypton, but i believe it has been downgraded since then to a dwarf planet or an asteriod. And I don't think it could sustain life.. So no superman coming from that planet!
Apollo 13 did not land on the moon. They had an explosion in the Service Module during their trip from the Earth to the moon and were forced to abandon the mission and return to Earth.
No. This was a test mission and never intended for a trip to the moon. They only orbited the earth.
Neil armstrong took one small step in the sea of Tran quality.
It was a very proud moment for all Americans and a historical moment for all mankind as well.
No the spacecraft was not a evil one.
