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.


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...

To take core samples of the lunar surface.
Apollo 11 was the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon.
Neil Armstrong was the first, Edwin Aldrin was the second. In total so far, 12 NASA astronauts have walked on the moon.
Rescuing the three astronauts of Apollo 13 was arguably the most  difficult rescue mission in all of human history. It showed that  humankind is not willing to give up on those in need of help. For a  few days, the whole world banded together in support of these three  individuals -- even the...
The last "manned" moon landing was Apollo 17 on December 11, 1972.
Each wheel of the rover had its own independent electrical motor.
Not in the traditional sense--there were no showers.   There were the equivalent of sponge bath available. This was  basically 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.
It was called Columbia after Jules vernes novel.
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.
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...
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 20th 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.
struggles that neil armstrong had?
No Neil Armstrong never returned to the moon, after Apollo 11 actually he retired shortly as a astronaut.
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.
On July 20, 1969 4:18 p.m EDT, Neil Armstrong was the first man to  step on the moon.   There he spoke his famous words "That's one small step for man, one  giant leap for mankind."
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.
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....
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin
The Apollo 7 spacecraft flew to test the Apollo spacecraft after the first one burnt i a fire. And astronauts Virgil grissim, edward White and roger Chaffee died.
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 liquid...
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...
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.
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.
  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!
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 they were in one spacecraft but first Neil Armstrong then Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon.
Three crews went to the moon in 1969, Apollos 10, 11, and 12. Apollo 10 was a "test run" for the moon landing and took place in May, 1969, but did not actually land. Apollo 11 was the first lunar landing (July, 1969), followed by Apollo 12 (November, 1969). Apollo 10 crew: Tom Stafford, John...
Because the moon has no atmosphere there is no wind or rain to erode the footprints.
No there was no dog . But the Russian sent a dog called Lyka.
The astronauts will have to use the lunar module , to return from the moon, they join up with the command module.   '''''INCORRECT'''''   ----   The space craft is difted back by the gravitational pull of the earth.
The Apollo 7 experiments included tests of sextant calibration, attitude control, evaporator, navigation, rendezvous radar, thermal control system, and service module propulsion systems. Really the whole flight was an experiment as it was the first manned mission of the Apollo spacecraft.
John F. Kennedy started the program to send men to the moon, butdied in 1963. After his death, Richard Nixon continued to fund JohnFitzgerald Kennedy's space program and in 1969, while Richard M.Nixon was president, the first men landed on the moon.
The members of Apollo 13 were James Lovell, Ken Mattingly, and Fred Haise. However, NASA thought Ken Mattingly had te Measels so he was replaced by Jack Swigert.
The Apollo 15 were the first to use the moon rover on the moon astronaut David scott and James Irwin were the two to travel.
As of now, no child has ever been in space.
The Apollo spacecraft took of from Cape Kennedy.
No it was president Kennedy who set the target for the u.s.a in 1961.
I suppose you could say the secret (although, like the rest of the Apollo program, it isn't very secret) is that the missions were more about politics than they were exploration.
Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon.
  == Answer ==   Unplug it. Now. If it is gas turn the gas off.   Chances are something electrical has failed. With all the lint that builds up inside those things it is a fire just waiting to be ignited. Don't use it until it is determined to be safe.   If you are a confident...
Apollo 11 was a venture by the United States government. Under the  auspices of NASA, the Apollo program sent a total of 11 missions  into space, six of which landed on the moon.
They were Neil Armstrong , Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins.
They were built throughout the 60's and into the 70's. Thespacecraft and various modules went through many, many iterationsand versions. There was not just a single design that was usedthroughout the program.
Because, there are no storms, rain, or wind,snow or even gravity along with other people steping on the moon to mess them up.
First of all Apollo 13 did not land on the moon. As the side blew out. The astronauts on board were Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise.
No Apollo missions landed people on the moon.
In order: Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, ben shepherd
Since 12 men have walked on the moon's surface, the plausibility is 100%. Obama is no Jack Kennedy, so we won't be going back on his shift. No bucks, no Buck Rogers.
The first time man landed on the moon was in 1969.
yes neil Armstrong Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first two of twelve.
The rocket that was used for Apollo 11 was the Saturn five rocket.
This is incorrect. 12 people have walked on the moon.
They landed in the sea of Tranquility.
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin
The lunar module eagle landed on the base called Tran quality sea.
No dog has ever actually been to the Moon. The first dog in space, Laika, was sent up by the Russians as part of the cosmonaut program. Too bad they had no way to bring her back alive! She died shortly after deployment due to overheating and panic, thus making her the first animal to die in space as...
The technician who installed the camera on the Modularized Equipment Stowage Assembly (MESA) . The MESA was an equipment bay located on the Descent Stage of the Lunar Module (LM). When Neil Armstrong was descending the LM ladder, he stopped after hopping onto the top rung and pulled a D-Handle....
Till now 12 people have set foot on the moon. The first man to set his foot on the moon was Neil Armstrong and the second man was Edwin Aldrin. They landed on the moon on 20 July, 1969 and stayed there for 21.6 hours abroad Apollo 11.
They were very congratulatory, proud to be fellow members of a species that could accomplish so much. Even the Russians made nice over it, although they had done their best to beat us there.
The ultimate cause of the Apollo 13 explosion (a thermostat that wasn't designed for the 68volt ground power which, when applied, fused the contacts of the thermostat open, forcing the tank heater to stay on, and increasing the temperature inside the tank to nearly 1,000 degrees, thereby melting the...
The Sea of Tranquility. That's why they called it "Tranquility Base".
