At 174 hours, 24 minutes the spacecraft will be approximately half way between the Earth and the Moon in terms of distance, and it will be 102,888 nautical miles [190,549 km] from the Earth and the same distance from the Moon. She is now married as Janice Aldrin Schuss and her recollections of the moon landing are recounted in First on the Moon: What It Was Like When Man Landed on the Moon, by Barbara Hehner, Hyperion, 1999. That was sufficient to allow the antennae to move again and continue tracking Apollo 11. Often in instrumentation, the output of a particular sensor is a voltage which bears some sort of relationship with the phenomenon that is being measured. For example, selection 5-C yields the injector valve temperature for the negative pitch thruster on the B ring. Apollo 11 is 135,920 nautical miles [251,724 km] from Earth. Although tropical storms will not affect weather in the landing area, the Apollo 11 crew should get a good view of the tropical storm Viola, located in the western North Pacific, and also the remains of the tropical storm Claudia, located southeast of Hawaii.

That last comment came from Mike Collins referring to Al Bean who is the Lunar Module Pilot for Apollo 12. Image credit: Image Science and Analysis Laboratory, NASA-Johnson Space Center. 16:27 JUL. First, by standardising the range, it is easier to telemeter the signals to Earth as the five-volt range can be represented in a simple digital range, say from binary 00000000 to binary 11111111 (0 to 255 decimal). The Apollo 11 spacecraft sits atop its Saturn V launch vehicle on Pad 39A at the John F.

This is a second preliminary PAD whose provision hedges against the remote possibility of a communication problem later. The knobs used to select a reading are marked in numbers for the left knob and letters for the right knob. Day 3 . We'll continue to stand by for any further communications with the spacecraft. Capsule Communicator Owen Garriot put in a call at 171 hours, about 10 minutes after the Surgeon reported biomedical data showed all three crewmen awake. 8 Days: to the Moon and Back 8 Days: to the Moon and Back 8 Days: to the Moon and Back. That's scheduled to occur at a Ground Elapsed Time of 177 hours, 30 minutes; which would be 6:02 pm Central Daylight Time. Mike has pointed out that using the telescope to find stars is very difficult and this is something that would have to be done every time the IMU is powered up. Some showers have been reported near the landing area, but these are expected to move westward, leaving the recovery area with partly cloudy skies, east-north-easterly winds, 10 to 15 knots, and 4-foot seas. She is a mother and a special education teacher, and apparently loves her unusual name. After a successfull moon landing, the Apollo 11 Command Module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969. Share this video on FacebookShare this video on Twitter. The lowest voltage reading was 4.5V and since 1V represents 20°F, this reading must represent 10°F below the maximum, or 40°F. An electronics unit takes all these voltage ranges and changes them all to fit within the range 0V to 5V. It focuses on the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, the first spaceflight from which men walked on the Moon. Day 6.

We're 30 hours, 34 minutes, 37 seconds away from entry of Apollo 11 into the Earth's atmosphere. If the thrusters require heating before the CM RCS propellant system is pressurised, then it is possible to send power to the manual direct coils, thereby warming the thruster assembly. At 175 hours, 51 minutes; Apollo 11 is 98,034 nautical miles [181,559 km] from the Earth. Charles Force died in 2007.
