The Best Books About the Apollo Program and Landing on the Moon

What If Buzz and Neil Didn't Come Back from the Moon? Nixon Had a Secret Plan.

Astronaut Michael Collins (R) speaks with NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center Director Robert Cabana at Launch Pad 39A at the NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center on the 50th anniversary of the launch of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, in Cape Canaveral, Florida, U.S., July 16, 2019.

The PITMS instrument will provide an early opportunity to study the dynamic behaviour of water on the Moon today, as well as proving some of the detection technology that will be used by the OU on subsequent missions. Armstrong was then the first person to walk on the space rock, famously saying, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".

The Apollo 11 was also the fifth manned flight of the command and service modules in the series and the third flight of a lunar module, which Armstrong and Aldrin used to get to the moon's surface.

In another commemoration of the historic launch, the spacesuit that Armstrong wore during the mission went on public display for the first time in 13 years at the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum in Washington. Collins said there was "a great deal of merit" to the recent push for a lunar return.

About 100 of the original 500 launch controllers and managers on July 16, 1969, reunited in the firing room Tuesday morning. "And the answer was 'No, I felt fine!'" "I was very happy to be where I was and to see this complicated mission unfold".

"I would enjoy a perfectly enjoyable hot coffee, I had music if I wanted to. Good old Command Module Columbia had every facility that I needed, and it was plenty big and I really enjoyed my time by myself instead of being terribly lonely".

What was the Apollo 11 mission? "As our nation and others look to return to the Moon, we must preserve these sites for the historical, archeological, and inspirational value they hold".

Morris said he continued to work on the team for most Apollo missions before the space program ended. The moment's historical significance was felt all over the world.

For his part, President Donald Trump relaunched the race to re-conquer the Moon and Mars after taking office in 2017.

The instrument selected by NASA is a variant of OU's ProSPA mobile laboratory already in development for the European Space Agency and scheduled to land near to the Moon's south pole on a Russian spacecraft in 2025.
