• Canadian Xpress July 2019 Challenge - Moon Landing

    Canadian Xpress

    On July 20th, 1969 which is 50 years ago this month, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin went where no one man has gone before, becoming the first humans to land and walk on a foreign spatial body. Michael Collins flew the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface.

    Collins is the one person that most people forget about as he made history that day becoming the first solo crew of a spacecraft outside of Earth orbit for 21 hours while Armstrong and Aldrin were on the lunar surface.

    Apollo 11 was launched by a Saturn V rocket from Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida, on July 16 at 13:32 UTC and was the fifth crewed mission of NASA's Apollo program. The Apollo spacecraft had three parts: a command module (CM) with a cabin for the three astronauts which is the only part that returned to Earth. The service module (SM) which supported the command module with propulsion, electrical power, oxygen, and water and of course the lunar module (LM) that had two stages, descent stage for landing on the Moon, and an ascent stage to place the astronauts back into lunar orbit.

    This month, we trace a route these astronauts and their predecessors followed during their travels to reach the moon. Traveling from Houston Texas (KIAH) to what was known at the time as Cape Canaveral Space Center (KORL).
