Apollo 11 50th "First Men on the Moon" : Neil Armstrong / Buzz Aldrin / Michael Collins ( All videos ):



  • Who can be so stupid fool,....... to set negative advise on such video ??? Can someone here explain the 122 negatives. I have see it in real time 50 years ago. I asked my grand father : Where they are going to ? He answered me : I will show you this evening. All the efternoon, I asked him show me, show me. Then when the moon was visible in Belgium. He showed me. I could not believe. But... it was. The 122 negative, go back to your stupidity, stay at age of ape and try to evoluate....

  • I'd love to know why TRvision videos keep freezing up. The audio continues but for weeks on whatever computer I use I can't seem to enjoy any video because they all freeze & then unfreeze about 10-15 seconds later all the while the audio continues to run. On another note I remember watching this as a kid of just 7years old. I was already a space nut from watching shows like Lost in Space, Star Trek & The Invaders but the Apollo launch seared into my psyche a deep love for the American space program. From this moment on I would never miss another manned launch & I've watched them all: Apollo, Skylab, Apollo/Soyuz, the space shuttle. I'm getting old now & still wait with a child's wonder for the next launch of astronauts in an American spacecraft. Fix your problems TRvision. I'm getting tired of your crap.

  • Too bad the majority of people watched the CBS coverage with Walter Cronkite. I missed the live coverage of the launch and splashdown having to attend a day camp . Good thing the actual land and walk on the moon was on a weekend. The end result of the technology is a society of zombies staring down 3 to 7 hours a day at a glass and steel box. Seperate a child from his phone and it is like you killed his best friend.

I was only two, and I’m not sure if there were live broadcasts to Guam back then. My dad did buy a record about the launch. I think I’ll listen to it on the 50th anniversary, which is two weeks from now. Thanks for sharing.

It is "celestial" mechanics - and that means the Earth has to be in the correct position in its rotation in relation to the moon for the launch to be successful. That has NOTHING to do with quantum physics. I always enjoy people who use words they can't spell correctly or understand...

  • I remember the moon landing and the walks on the surface, but what I was too young to remember was the incredibly insightful commentary of the reporters describing the event. Where is this level of reporting today? Where is the thoughtful commentary on how our achievements might impact the future of the species? Perhaps a future generation may look back on how baby boomers squandered the enlightenment of the 1970s on senseless partisan ideology that has left us bereft of the future we deserve? I am disgusted by current events in which political ideologues promote ignorant deniability in the face of harsh environmental reality. Perhaps we do not deserve to return to the moon until we can do so with hope for the future rather than simply conquest for the mighty?

    • @Now The Party Has Started I quite understand and I appreciate your response. I have carried out my research into our habitat and found out after 911 that we have been lied to on many things including who we are and where we live. It goes on and on. I respect anybody's beliefs because I entertained certain beliefs before but on close examination, have discovered that much of what we think we know has been handed down to us. We have not independently verified a lot. We assimilate. But it hurts when certain truths are in our faces yet many choose to believe the narrative expounded by our leaders.

      Willoughby KrenzteinburgWilloughby Krenzteinburg3 aylar önce

      george vilageorge vila3 aylar önce
    • @george vila Yes, the third stage sort of drifted away. However, they didn't dock until they were ALREADY on the way to the moon, so that third stage was on the way to the moon right along with them. Sometimes it missed the moon and wound up in a solar orbit. Sometimes they put it on a trajectory that would impact the moon. The ascent modules were crashed into the moon as well. This does not mean the S-IVBs were NOT crashed into the moon. They absolutely were. You're kind of starting to embarrass yourself at this point, kid. Here is how it worked : The Saturn V sat on a launch pad, and for Apollo missions, its payload was the Apollo space craft - which was the LM and the command and service modules. The first stage ignited and liftoff began. The first stage eventually ran out of fuel, so it was jettisoned and the second stage was ignited (the first stage fell to Earth). The second stage gets them into space, but not quite into orbit (do you know how orbits even work?). The second stage is jettisoned, and since orbit has yet to be reached, this second stage falls back to Earth as well. The third stage is fired up and the finalization of Earth orbit is executed, and the third stage is shut down....but NOT jettisoned. It has one more burn to perform. After a few orbits, the third stage fires back up and burns for about 6 minutes, putting the payload - and by sheer and utter fucking common sense - the third stage itself on a trajectory to the moon. After this burn, the command module is fired up and they leave the confines of the third stage. They do a 180 and dock back with the LM and extract it from the third stage. Meanwhile, EVERYTHING is on its way to the moon. To say that this third stage magically fell back to Earth after this is nonsense.

Von Braun's design for a rocket to get to the moon was wrong and was rejected by NASA, it was a young engineer from Chance-Vought whose concept was used for the design criteria of the Saturn V rocket. The History Channel and documentaries from other countries versions of the History Channel aren't the most reliable places to get your history lessons from, they're full of misinformation on almost every subject they cover, I just watched a documentary the other night that a European "History Expert" said what had to be a flat-out lie about an event that occured at the location he was at, since anyone who visits the spot he was standing on could clearly read the sign right behind him that speaks about the event that he was covering and it clearly gives a different story than he does, once again, jealousy rears its ugly head.
