50 years of landing on the moon: celebrate anniversary with NASA
Apollo Flight Control Center
It took several years to study documentary chronicles, photographs, and interview surviving witnesses in order to restore the Apollo program in Houston. A ceremony was held at the Lyndon Johnson Space Center on June 28, at which, among others, there were employees who controlled all the Apollo-11 spacecraft systems.
Interactive photos of the landing site
To assess the magnitude of the work done by astronauts on the lunar surface, you can follow the link to the site of LRO - a probe that has been engaged in detailed mapping of the Earth’s natural satellite for 10 years. In the image with a resolution of 40 cm per pixel, covering the entire landing area and extra-ship activities of Aldrin and Armstrong, each object with which they interacted is marked. If you choose the Temporal Traverse demo mode above the image, a scale appears under the image, moving the slider along it, you can hear all the conversations and observe where each astronaut was at a given time.
Interactive historical broadcast
If astronaut movements were simply marked on the LRO images and crew talks with each other and the MCC are attached to each point on the map, then on the apolloinrealtime website you can familiarize yourself with the full interactive broadcast of the entire flight. The archived restored video and audio files, photographs and transcripts are collected together. By simply moving the mouse or finger along the timeline, the resource visitor simultaneously sees and hears everything just like the employees of the flight control center, astronauts and other contemporaries of the event. At its core, this resource is an interactive documentary film that allows to some extent to approach the epoch-making achievement of mankind, which unites the entire globe for a week.
