14 kwietnia 1969 kierownik programu  Apollo George Low ogłosił podczas konferencji prasowej, że Neil  Armstrong najprawdopodobniej będzie pierwszą osobą, która jako pierwsza zejdzie na powierzchnię Księżyca.

(...) On April 14, Apollo Spacecraft Program Manager George M. Low announced in a press conference that Commander Neil A. Armstrong would most likely be the first person to exit the LM and take humanity’s first steps on the lunar surface. Lunar Module Pilot Edwin A. “Buzz” Aldrin would follow about 20 minutes later. The primary rationale for this decision was logistical – because of the way the LM’s hatch opened inward, it would be difficult at best for Aldrin to exit first, as he would need to climb over Armstrong in the cramped quarters of the cabin, both of them wearing bulky spacesuits. Apollo 11’s third crewmember, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, was to remain in lunar orbit during the lunar landing. (...)

50 Years Ago: One Month til Apollo 11 Liftoff
June 17, 2019


Apollo 10 and 11 astronauts (clockwise from left) Collins, Aldrin, Cernan, Stafford, Armstrong, and Young meet to discuss the lessons learned from the Apollo 10 mission.

The achievement of President John F. Kennedy’s goal of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth was just one month away. Between May 18 and 26, 1969, Apollo 10 astronauts Thomas P. Stafford, Eugene A. Cernan, and John W. Young successfully carried out a dress rehearsal for the Moon landing mission. On June 3, they met with the Apollo 11 crew of Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins to describe their mission to them and pass along all the lessons they learned. As Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins intensified their training for the historic mission, NASA was preparing to support the mission as well as the return of the crew from the Moon. On June 5, Armstrong and Aldrin conducted a simulation of the lunar surface Extravehicular Activity (EVA) at the Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC), now the Johnson Space Center in Houston. On June 11, Apollo Program Director at NASA Headquarters Lt. Gen. Sam C. Phillips announced that it was NASA’s intention to carry out the first human lunar landing during the Apollo 11 mission in July pending successful completion of all required preflight activities. The decision was based on the results from the successful Apollo 10 mission and the readiness of mission preparations for Apollo 11. The launch would take place on July 16 and the landing on July 20.

Countdown to Apollo 11
June 18, 2019



In June 1969, just a month before liftoff, the Apollo 11 astronauts continued training at NASA's Kennedy Space Center for their mission. On June 18, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin rehearsed their lunar surface spacewalk in the Flight Crew Training Building, including practicing deploying the Early Apollo Surface Experiment Package (EASEP) suite of experiments. The investigators for the experiments were present to observe the simulation. The astronauts also spent much time in the Lunar Module and Command Module simulators rehearsing various phases of their upcoming mission. For many of these simulations, the team of flight controllers in Mission Control at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston also participated.

Na początku lipca 1969 miał miejsce  CDDT (Countdown Demonstration Test).

50 Years Ago: Apollo 11 Passes Countdown Test
July 2, 2019

The major activity at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) the first week of July 1969 was the Countdown Demonstration Test (CDDT) for the Apollo 11 Moon landing mission. The CDDT, a full dress rehearsal for the actual countdown to launch, consisted of two parts. The “wet” test included fueling the rocket as if for flight, with the countdown cutting off just prior to first stage engine ignition, and did not involve the flight crew. This was followed by the “dry” test, an abbreviated countdown without fueling the rocket but with the flight crew boarding the Command Module (CM) as if on launch day. The wet countdown was completed on July 2, and the dry test the next day, with astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins suiting up and climbing aboard their CM. Controllers in Firing Room 1 of the Launch Control Center (LCC) at Launch Complex 39 monitored all aspects of the CDDT as they would on launch day. The test was a complete success, clearing the way for the start of the actual countdown. (...)

In the White Room at Launch Pad 39A, the closeout crew prepare to close the hatch to the Apollo 11 CM during the CDDT.

(...) On July 2, NASA announced that Armstrong and Aldrin would leave three symbolic items behind on the Moon to commemorate the historic first landing – an American flag, a commemorative plaque, and a silicon disc bearing messages from world leaders. NASA Administrator Thomas O. Paine created the Committee on Symbolic Activities for the First Lunar Landing and appointed Willis H. Shapley, NASA Associate Deputy Administrator, as its chair on Feb. 25, 1969. After reviewing advice from the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, the Archivist of the United States, the NASA Historical Advisory Committee, the Space Council, and congressional committees, Shapley’s committee recommended to Administrator Paine that these three items be flown. The astronauts would plant the three-by-five-foot flag near their Lunar Module (LM) during their spacewalk. The stainless steel plaque bore the images of the two hemispheres of the Earth and this inscription,

Here men from the Planet Earth

first set foot upon the Moon

July 1969 A.D.

we came in peace for all mankind


The signatures of the three astronauts and President Richard M. Nixon also appeared on the plaque. Workers mounted it on the forward landing leg strut of the LM. The messages of goodwill from 73 world leaders were etched on the one-and-one-half-inch silicon disc using the technique to make microcircuits for electronic equipment. The crew placed the disc on the lunar surface at the end of their spacewalk.

50 Years Ago: National Goal Nears Fulfillment
July 9, 2019


Aldrin, Armstrong, and Collins during the July 14 press conference at KSC.

July 1969 – Apollo 11 astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins were ready to embark on their historic journey to fulfill President John F. Kennedy’s goal to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to the Earth. Arriving at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) after the Fourth of July holiday weekend, they busied themselves with final training for the mission. All three piloted aerobatic flights aboard T-38 Talon training aircraft, spent time reviewing their flight plan, Armstrong and Aldrin trained in the Lunar Module (LM) simulator while Collins did the same in the Command Module (CM) simulator, Aldrin experienced one-sixth gravity during KC-135 parabolic flights, and Armstrong flew helicopters to hone his skills for piloting the LM to the lunar surface. Two days before launch the trio held a brief news conference, with reporters asking any final questions via a television link up – NASA wanted to minimize the astronauts’ exposure to people to prevent any illnesses that might delay the mission or cause any problems during the flight. The preliminary countdown for launch began on July 11 and the terminal countdown three days later. (...)

Artist Russ Arasmith's Visions of Apollo
July 15, 2019

On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 lifted off for the Moon and into history. Artist Russ Arasmith's vision of Apollo was a potent vision of the program that shows in the works he created. ​Arasmith worked for the Los Angeles Times for 32 years and served as Editorial Art Director for 17 of those years. He created all the space drawings for the Times. The drawings were the result of extensive briefings he attended at various NASA centers. All were done before the fact on the same schedule with the individual missions involved. The articles and the drawing were run in the Los Angeles Times on the day the actual event occurred. The Times Syndicate then distributed the art work to 300 newspapers all over the world. Arasmith retired from the Los Angeles Times in 1992. He passed away in 2018, leaving a body of work for posterity.

World Joins NASA in Celebrating Apollo as the Agency Looks to the Future
July 22, 2019


The 50-year anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission with NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin is celebrated in a 17-minute show, “Apollo 50: Go for the Moon”, which combined full-motion projection-mapping artwork on the Washington Monument and archival footage to recreate the launch of Apollo 11 and tell the story of the first Moon landing. Friday, July 19, 2019 in Washington. Credits: NASA/Bill Ingalls

When Apollo 11 landed on the Moon, more than 600 million people – approximately one-sixth the world’s population – reportedly saw the television footage of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin taking humanity’s first steps on another world. Fifty years later, the world came together again around Apollo 11, but the advent of social media fundamentally changed how people did so, allowing them to interact much more directly by sharing imagery, memories and thoughts with their own global audience.

Moonshot: Flight of Apollo 19

Kelly from Ontario was born just two days before Apollo 11 launched. While she doesn’t remember the Moon landing, the impact of the mission still followed her throughout her life. As a physics teacher, every year she helps her students launch high altitude balloons.

This year’s balloon was dubbed “Moonshot: Flight of Apollo '19”, and held a tiny Moon lander and a miniature Neil Armstrong holding a “50” flag. It reached an altitude of over 20 miles!


Kelly from Ontario, Canada, is a high school physics, computer science and math teacher. She organizes high altitude balloon launches at her high school, and this year her class dubbed the flight "Moonshot: Flight of Apollo '19" as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The balloon achieved an altitude of over 20 miles, and on board were a tiny Moon lander and Neil Armstrong figure holding a "50" flag. These images were captured at max altitude, just after the balloon burst. Credits: Courtesy of Kelly from Ontario, Canada

Candid Apollo
July 24, 2018



Upon splashing down, the Apollo 11 crew underwent a 21-day quarantine. The purpose of this was to protect against the small possibility of lunar contagion. This procedure was discontinued after Apollo 14. This photo provides a candid view of the astronauts in the Mobile Quarantine Facility.

50 Years Ago: Apollo 11 Astronauts Leave Quarantine…
Aug. 12, 2019

(...) On the evening of Aug. 10, MSC Director of Medical Research and Operations Dr. Charles A. Berry opened the door to the LRL’s Crew Reception Area (CRA), and Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins stepped out into the hallway. They were welcomed by MSC Director Robert L. Gilruth, other NASA officials and colleagues, and a swarm of reporters once they stepped outside the building into the hot and muggy Houston night. It was the first time they could freely interact with the outside world since their preflight quarantine began more than a month before. Individual cars whisked the astronauts to their homes for reunions with their families. The next day was a day off for the astronauts and they spent it with their families. To prepare for the upcoming events, Aldrin and Collins went shopping for new suits, while apparently Armstrong had an adequate number and spent the day relaxing by his pool. (...)

Two views from the Apollo 11 crew postflight press conference in the MSC Auditorium: (left to right) Aldrin, Armstrong, and Collins.

On Aug. 12, Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins entered MSC’s Auditorium to a capacity crowd of reporters and TV crews who saluted them with a standing ovation. Armstrong set the stage for the press conference with the following opening statement,

“It was our pleasure to participate in one great adventure. It's an adventure that took place, not just in the month of July, but rather one that took place in the last decade. We … had the opportunity to share that adventure over its developing and unfolding in the past months and years. It's our privilege today to share with you some of the details of that final month of July that was certainly the highlight, for the three of us, of that decade.”

For the next 45 minutes the astronauts described their historic mission in great detail, using photographs and film clips taken during the flight to illustrate their presentation. (...)

When President Richard M. Nixon greeted the astronauts aboard the USS Hornet on splashdown day, he had invited them and their wives to a state dinner in Los Angeles in their honor. True to his word, President Nixon even lent them his presidential jet for the occasion. The trip to Los Angeles began at 5 AM on Aug. 13, when Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins accompanied by their wives and children boarded the VC-137B aircraft (a modified Boeing 707 called Air Force One when the President was aboard) at Ellington Air Force Base (AFB) near MSC. However, their first destination was not Los Angeles but New York City. They landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport and were whisked by helicopter to the Wall Street heliport. From there, the astronauts were treated to the largest, longest, and loudest tickertape parade in the city’s history. At City Hall, Mayor John V. Lindsey placed the gold medal of New York City around their necks. The parade then continued to the United Nations (UN) where UN Secretary General U Thant welcomed them. The astronauts made brief speeches at each stop. An estimated four million people lined the parade route. They were whisked back to the airport where they boarded the presidential plane, bound for Chicago. (...)

After landing at Los Angeles International Airport where they were welcomed by Mayor Samuel W. “Sam” Yorty, they flew by helicopter to the Century Plaza Hotel for President Nixon’s promised state dinner, the first ever to be held outside of Washington, DC. Among the 1,440 guests assembled for the gala were the President and Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and their families, 14 members of the President’s Cabinet, 44 Governors including California Governor Ronald W. Reagan who welcomed everyone to his state, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 50 members of Congress, NASA Administrator Thomas O. Paine and 48 astronauts, ambassadors from 83 countries and numerous celebrities. The state dinner was televised live so all Americans could share the moment. Guidance Controller Steve Bales, who during the critical moments of the descent to the Moon decided that the landing could proceed despite the guidance computer’s program alarms, accepted a NASA Group Achievement Award on behalf of the entire flight operations team. In a sense, Bales represented the 400,000 Americans who had worked on the Apollo program and made the Moon landing possible.(...)

After a day that was perhaps as stressful as the day of the lunar landing itself, the astronauts and their families, accompanied by NASA Administrator Paine, flew back to Houston on Aug. 14 aboard the presidential jet. Their postflight duties, however, were far from over. The next day, the same day as a giant music festival was getting underway in upstate New York, Armstrong, Collins, and Aldrin taped an interview with the CBS News Face the Nation program that aired Aug. 17. During the program, Collins announced his decision that Apollo 11 was his last space flight but that he would remain with NASA for the foreseeable future. On Aug. 16, it was Houston’s turn to welcome the astronauts with another tickertape parade attended by about 250,000 cheering supporters. The parade was followed by a barbecue party in the Houston Astrodome for an estimated crowd of 50,000 people, with Frank Sinatra as the emcee. Much more lay ahead in the coming months for the Apollo 11 astronauts and their wives as they adjusted to being worldwide celebrities. (...)

(...)

Armstrong, Aldrin i Collins już nigdy więcej nie wybrali się w lot kosmiczny. Wraz z końcem programu Apollo (w 1975 roku, po misji Apollo-Sojuz) nastąpiła przerwa w realizacji amerykańskich lotów załogowych – aż do czasu pierwszego lotu promu kosmicznego (STS-1, prom Columbia, 1981 rok).
