A look at the most notable details of the Apollo 11 mission, including what’s inside the spacecraft and its cargo, and what NASA plans to do to preserve the historic mission.
Continue Reading BelowThe space agency has a long history of trying to preserve its Apollo spacecraft and cargo from being destroyed during the launch.
In the early days, the space agency used the term “cargo recovery” to describe how it planned to salvage the mission’s components.
Today, the term is reserved for the recovery of the spacecraft from the ocean.
Apollo 11 had been scheduled to be launched into space in late May.
But the mission had been delayed due to the impact of Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 hurricane that hit the Bahamas, leaving a massive debris field in the Atlantic Ocean.
The space shuttle, the only shuttle to have launched into orbit, had to make a forced landing on a Florida beach in June 2021.
The mission was supposed to be a test flight, but when the weather worsened and NASA was forced to cancel the launch due to Hurricane Irma, the shuttle was forced into an emergency landing at Kennedy Space Center.
The recovery of Apollo 11 was a key milestone in NASA’s recovery efforts.
The Apollo 11 cargo is a collection of a number of instruments and science instruments, including the cameras used in the first Earth observation missions, the first two telephones, a pair of cameras for a Viking orbiter, and two small cameras for the Cassini spacecraft.
A number of the instruments were sent to Earth as part of the mission, but some of them will be on the International Space Station in the months ahead.NASA also plans to use some of the artifacts from the spacecraft to create a “high-tech” museum dedicated to the Apollo era, the agency announced last month.
NASA also wants to use the artifacts for education programs and other projects.
The spacecraft was carrying the Lunar Orbiter Module (LOM), a spacecraft that was the first spacecraft to use a solid rocket booster.
The spacecraft was the only one of the four Lunar Orbiters that carried a human payload, and it carried astronauts Rick Husband and Eugene Cernan.
Apollos 11 also carried instruments for a pair a NASA mission called the Lunar Microwave Sounder (LMS), which was a spacecraft to study the Moon’s surface.
The LMS was intended to help scientists learn about how lunar dust behaves, and NASA hopes that it will be able to detect lunar geysers.
Apos 11 was one of two missions that launched in support of the Space Launch System (SLS), a rocket that would allow NASA to launch missions into low-Earth orbit and eventually send astronauts to Mars.
The other mission, the Cassiopeia mission, is a probe that will help scientists study the impact event on the moon that led to the formation of the Earth and a number in the solar system.NASA plans to reuse the Apollo spacecrafts parts from Apollo 11 in future missions.NASA has already sent two robotic spacecrafts to the moon in the future, and the agency has plans to send one more mission to the lunar surface as early as 2024.
