Apollo 11: Four things you may not know about the first moon landing

https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-48907836


tldr
1. Saturn V is still the largest and most powerful rocket ever built

2. Apollo was about the same size as a large car

3. African-American women skilled in maths helped to work out the route to the Moon

4. No-one knows where the Apollo 11 module is now

The command module is at the National Air and Space Museum. The service module burned up in earths atmosphere. The lunar module descent stage is still sitting where Neil Armstrong landed it. The lunar module ascent stage was crashed into the moon* to test the seismometer left there.


* exactly where it crashed IS unknown, true wink

It's been a lot of years since I have been there but at one time the U.S. Space and Rocket center, in Huntsville, Alabama, had a full Saturn V lift system laid out horizontally in the outdoor display area. I think it is indoors now.

They have two, with one indoors and laid out.

The one outside, and vertical, is a fake. A 1:1 scale model.

Lies, no African American women were involved in the maths that involved the Lunar missions. The following people were involved only, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and John Glenn. They used a massive sheet four hundred meters square with chalk. No one else was involved in the maths, it took 4 days to do the calculations, no one slept or went home. they stayed there throughout the time the calculations were carried out.
Flying to the moon involves primarily a board with numbers and a stop watch.
The Astronauts did their own calculations as it is their flight, no one else on Planet Earth had the skill or Qualifications or experience in order to carry it out. All of them were test pilots for the US Navy, none of them was sick on the flight. Neil was awake the whole 9 days of the flight and did not use anything to keep awake. The Apollo 11 Module is in a Museum the rest is in space in outer orbit floating around. The bottom of the Lunar module is still on the moon.(you can see it with a telescope)

Ok, you did it once. Going for a second helping is just in poor taste.

This is an interesting comparison:

Saturn V is in the middle and the NASA Space Launch concept next to it.

Those people that I mentioned are the only ones who did the calculations for the trip to the moon and back. They used a 400meter square board when they did it, it took 4 days without sleep to do the calculation. When they flew to the moon Neil had to use just a stop watch to control thruster bursts in order to make the journey. Neil never slept for 9 days, no one else on the ground had anything to do with those calculations. That movie with those women is a total lie no such thing ever happened. There were 4 women working for NASA at the time, none of them was involved in anything to do with the calculations of the SpaceShip. There was one who was an Engineer who was involved in one panel on the Lander.

You are very hard to take seriously when you say things that are just impossible.

Give it a rest.

Not wanting to seem like a pile-on, but really Sub, you are not playing nicely in posting stuff that you yourself know is rubbish. It's known as trolling.

Subs, check this out. An amazing series called the Moon Machines. The link is the show about the navigation computer used on Apollo.

Any truth that the first parts to touch the moon were Canadian made?


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I dunno... would they really want to risk having something tell them to "Take off, you hoser!" just as they were touching down? Seems kind of counter-productive...
