You're in a spacecraft, descending to land on the moon for the first time in history, and the microphone to Earth is off. In mission control, astronauts Charles Duke Jr., James Lovell Jr. and Fred Haise Jr. keep in contact with the Apollo 11 astronauts during their lunar landing mission on July 20, 1969. Fortunately for everyone, none of the debris resulting from the Service Modules re-entry impacted the Command Module, and the astronauts all arrived safely back on Earth. The Service Module was jettisoned from the Command Module early, and the damage is clearly visible on the right side. By shifting the Service Module to a significantly different trajectory, it wouldnt even re-enter at the same time as the Command Module, but would skip off the atmosphere this time. Notice that the top one is almost unchanged while the bottom one is shattering into pieces. [3] Australian backup tapes were also erased after Goddard received the reels,[1] following the procedures established by NASA. The Apollo 11 missing tapes were those that were recorded from Apollo 11's slow-scan television telecast in its raw format on telemetry data tape at the time of the first Moon landing in 1969 and subsequently lost. 3These searches were done in August 2009. 'The Eagle has landed': Remembering Apollo 11 moon mission, descended toward the moons rocky surface on July 20, 1969, 160 heartbeats per minute: The final, frantic moments before the historic moon landing, Saturn V rocket lifted off from Kennedy Space Center, uploaded all of the audio to the Internet Archive, The human factor: What it will take to build the perfect team for traveling to Mars. George had learned about these "government surplus" auctions while an intern at the Johnson Space Center. More information on Larrys lunar eavesdropping, including some audio clips, can be found on Christopher Graneys Otter Creek-South Harrison Observatory Web page, Lunar Eavesdropping In Louisville, Kentucky. That channel was not public and it could have been very easily used to communicate information that you didnt want to be heard over the general public transmissions. The prophecies of Nostradamus: What did he predict for 2023? At a 2009 news conference in Washington, D.C., the research team released its findings regarding the tapes' disappearance. The astronauts needed an answer. AETNUK. But Armstrong and Aldrin made it to the surface safely, as we all know, and the rest is history. "Once the audio gets out there, maybe people will say, 'Hey, that was my Dad, or that was my Granddad,'" he said. On July 21, after just 21 hours and 36 minutes on the Moon, the ascent engine fired, bringing the Eagle back to dock with Columbia, and returning astronauts Aldrin and Armstrong to the Command and Service Module with astronaut Collins. NASAs Apollo 11 crew blasted off from Earth on July 16, 1969, from Cape Canaveral, Florida. As a former one-time NASA intern prepares to auction off videotapes that allegedly contain original recordings of the first moonwalk, NASA released a statement addressing claims that the agency lost the footage from the Apollo 11 mission. This was incorrect, as NASA stated that the footage on the tapes was already preserved by the agency. Part 1: How Neil Armstrong Got Ready for the Moon. The re-entry of the Service Module should have only come much later, after performing another orbit (or set of orbits) around Earth. All photos used with permission of The Courier-Journal, Louisville, Kentucky, except as noted. [3] Their findings included a videotape recorded in Sydney after the conversion but before the satellite transmission around the world, videotape from CBS News archives (direct from NASA, without commentary) and kinescopes at Johnson Space Center. 8 people executed for high treason in the UK. I was also intrigued because both in my classes and in our observatory public outreach programs I encounter people who ask whether I think we really went to the Moon. As the real-time broadcast worked and was widely recorded, preservation of the backup video was not deemed a priority in the years immediately following the mission. [2], A team of retired NASA employees and contractors tried to find the tapes in the early 2000s but was unable to do so. [1] A few short clips were shown at the news conference, showing their improved quality. [11] The converter then repeated the whole process with each new frame downloaded from space in real time. He independently detected radio transmissions from the Apollo 11 astronauts on the lunar surface. On July 21, the SPS thrusters fired, returning the Command and Service Module to Earth, with the lone mid-course correction coming on July 22. The search for the "lost tapes" began in 2006, when reports began surfacing that NASA had erased some original footage from the first moon landing. Lowry Digital completed the full moonwalk restoration project in late 2009. (NASA/Newsmakers), This artists concept shows the Command Module, undergoing re-entry in 5000 F heat. Only limited radio bandwidth was available to transmit the video signal from the lunar landings, which needed to be multiplexed with other communication and telemetry channels beamed from the Lunar Module Eagle, back to Earth. Indeed, Rutherfords story makes no mention of hearing anything unusual. By the late 1960s Baysinger was working professionally for WHAS and experimenting on the side with radio astronomy and satellite tracking. The last astronaut to walk the Moon was Gene Cernan of the Apollo 17 mission the 11th and final man to set foot on Earths only natural satellite. 4QST readers interested in this story may want to look at Grahns Tracking Apollo 17 from Florida or Flaggs University of Florida Student Satellite Tracking Station Web pages. Atkinsons book, Eight Years to the Moon, comes highly recommended by me if youre interested in the behind-the-scenes details and rarely-told stories from the Apollo era. His website, Apollo 11 in Real Time, takes viewers on a journey through the first landing on the moon, complete with restored mission material.To read more: http://cbc.ca/ Subscribe to CBC News to watch more videos: http://bit.ly/1RreYWSConnect with CBC News Online:For breaking news, video, audio and in-depth coverage: http://bit.ly/1Z0m6iXFind CBC News on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1WjG36mFollow CBC News on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1sA5P9HFor breaking news on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1WjDyksFollow CBC News on Instagram: http://bit.ly/1Z0iE7ODownload the CBC News app for iOS: http://apple.co/25mpsUzDownload the CBC News app for Android: http://bit.ly/1XxuozZFor more than 75 years, CBC News has been the source Canadians turn to, to keep them informed about their communities, their country and their world. (SSPL/Getty Images), Although there are no known photographs of the, Apollo 11 Command Module descending towards splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, all of the crewed Apollo missions ended in similar fashion: with the Command Modules heat shield protecting the astronauts during the early stages of re-entry, and a parachute deploying to slow the final stages of descent to a manageable speed. In fact, this was one piece of evidence that the Apollo 11 signals the receiver picked up were indeed from the Moon if the antenna was not kept aimed at the Moon, the signal disappeared. Heres the story youve never heard. This historic exchange on July 20, 1969 marked the end of a perilous journey to the lunar surface, but a multitude of threats still faced the pair of NASA astronauts during their surface. - Nov 12, 2018 6:00 pm UTC. NASA selected a scan converter manufactured by RCA to convert the black-and-white SSTV signals from the Apollo 7, 8, 9 and 11 missions. [24] It carried no video but did show that if any of the tapes are ever found, data could likely be read from them. He hopes to have a new Apollo 11 portal built in time for the mission's 50th anniversary next year. On July 16, 1969, the world watches as the three Apollo 11 astronauts attempt the impossible: to ride a controlled explosion off Planet Earth, land on another celestial body and return home. Sven Grahn and Richard Flagg picked up transmissions from the Apollo 17 command module in orbit around the Moon using a 30 foot radio telescope dish, but they heard only two recognizable voice transmissions, each consisting of only a few words.4. Extensive searches through Google, as well as through the EBSCO and JSTOR databases, turned up no references to it at all.3. [9] The other raw SSTV signal branch was sent to the RCA scan converter, where it was processed into an NTSC broadcast television signal. I thought it would be wonderful in those instances to have on tap a story of a local person independently verifying the presence of astronauts on the Moon. Numerous personnel in other rooms, all connected via headsets, supported the mission and the most critical conversations were recorded. [19] The missing tapes were among over 700 boxes of magnetic data tapes recorded throughout the Apollo program that have not been found. Jennifer lives in Los Angeles. [3] At the news conference, it was mentioned that Lowry Digital would complete enhancing and restoring the tapes. [35][36], Photograph of the original SSTV signal of Aldrin and Armstrong at the foot of, For the purposes of clarity and simplicity in this article, 60 fields and 30 frames per second are used. If the Command Module and the Service Module had collided or interacted in any sort of substantial, unplanned-for way, the return of the first moonwalkers could have been as disastrous as the Space Shuttle Columbias final flight. As it turned out, the 1202 alarm did recur. The story discussed how Baysinger recorded 35 minutes of conversation from VHF signals transmitted between astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins (he did not attempt to pick up the encoded S-band signals from the main Moon-Earth communication link).1 These 35 minutes included the time during which President Richard Nixon transmitted a message of congratulations to the astronauts. They were always working collaboratively.". The astronauts might not have successfully returned to Earth, however, if the procedure used to jettison the fuel from the Service Module had let it come into contact with the Command Module. The plan to avoid it was simple: the Service Module, post-separation, would perform a series of thrust maneuvers to take it safely away from the re-entry path of the Command Module. The Apollo crew and to spend 21 days in quarantine after returning to Earth. FOLLOW NBC NEWS MACH ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, AND INSTAGRAM. Baysinger told me that he got interested in radio in the early 1950s, when building a radio from scratch or modifying a military surplus device was common practice. Does 'stagehand reflected in astronaut's' visor prove it was filmed in a studio? [18], News that these analog data tapes were missing emerged on August 5, 2006, when the print and online versions of The Sydney Morning Herald published a story with the title One giant blunder for mankind: how NASA lost moon pictures. This story has been corrected to reflect that. Related: Watch NASA's Apollo 11 Moonwalk Moments in This Archive Video. The search was sparked when several still photographs appeared in the late 1990s that showed the visually superior raw SSTV transmission on ground-station monitors. The astronauts apparently talked about seeing extraterrestrial objects on the Moon. Crew Neil Armstrong, Commander Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr., Lunar Module Pilot Michael Collins, Command Module Pilot Backup Crew James A. Lovell, Commander Fred W. Haise Jr., Lunar Module Pilot William A. Anders, Command Module Pilot So Hansen's team ordered a custom-built read head that allowed all 30 tracks to be played back at the same time. [33] The full restoration of the footage, about three hours long, was completed in December 2009. Apollo 11 is a 2019 American documentary film edited, produced and directed by Todd Douglas Miller. Through regional and national programming on multiple platforms, including CBC Television, CBC News Network, CBC Radio, CBCNews.ca, mobile and on-demand, CBC News and its internationally recognized team of award-winning journalists deliver the breaking stories, the issues, the analyses and the personalities that matter to Canadians. [12] The video seen on home television sets was further degraded by the very long and noisy analog transmission path. "Roger, we got you, we're go on that alarm," came the reassuring reply. The footage has been . The result: 19,000 hours of newly digitized audio data, ready for Hansen's speech recognition analysis, which included identifying more than 600 different voices on the tapes. Of the three Apollo 11 astronauts, Command Module pilot Michael Collins was the only one who did not set foot on the Moon. [1], Nafzger stated that the team did find several post-conversion copies of the broadcast that were of higher quality than what had been previously seen by the public. In short order I was talking to Baysinger via phone and e-mail, learning more about the lunar eavesdropping project. The Apollo 11 missing tapes were those that were recorded from Apollo 11's slow-scan television (SSTV) telecast in its raw format on telemetry data tape at the time of the first Moon landing in 1969 and subsequently lost. Mr Bara, who also appeared on the History Channel, said both of NASAs astronauts were evidently upset by something they saw on the Moon within 30 minutes of landing. Mans search will not be denied. And NASA has uploaded the full audio to the publicly accessible archive.org, an invaluable resource for historians, filmmakers, and any others keen to savor the full Apollo 11 experience. [29][30] Although Sotheby's described these tapes as "the best surviving NASA videotape recordings of the historic Apollo 11 Moon Landing" and "the earliest, sharpest and most accurate surviving video images of man's first steps on the moon",[31] a statement from NASA said these tapes "contain no material that hasn't been preserved at NASA".

Baba Vanga is credited with predicting many notable world events, but what does she think is in store for 2023? Lunar Eavesdropping: Louisvillians hear moon walk talk on homemade equipment, sporting Rutherfords byline, appeared in the Wednesday, July 23, 1969 issue of that paper front page of section B, the local news section (see Figure 1). The images show mainly the scan converted monitor and briefly the slow-scan monitor. Mr Whitehead said: It is interesting when you watch the feed of when they came back from the Moon and theyre not sitting there jumping up and down for joy and saying, I had the most incredible experience of my life, I was on the Moon. He can be reached at Jefferson Community & Technical College, 1000 Community College Dr, Louisville, KY 40272. [22], The Goddard Center's Data Evaluation Laboratory has the only known surviving piece of equipment that can read the missing tapes and was set to be closed in October 2006, causing some fear that, even if the tapes were later found, there would be no ready way to read and copy them. "So, just in case anyone thinks there is video out there that hasnt been seen, that is not the case.". The fact NASA has not been back to the Moons since the Apollo Programme wrapped up has been another point of contention between conspiracy theorists and Moon landing sceptics alike. (NASA / AFP / Getty Images), Astronaut Edwin E. Buzz Aldrin Jr., Lunar Module, Pilot, stands near a scientific experiment on the lunar surface. Three tapes containing original footage from the moon landing are up for auction. The ground stations also recorded the data on special 1-inch, 14-track tapes, one track of which was for video. And what else is very telling is that although the USSR at the time was getting to be quite able to send its own astronauts to the Moon, it never seems to have done so. The problem was that there were two types of thrusters on board the Service Module: the Minus X RCS jets and the RCS roll jets. [34] Highlights of this fully enhanced video were shown to the public for the first time at the Australian Geographic Society Awards on October 6, 2010, where Buzz Aldrin was the guest of honor. In July of 1969 a ham radio operator and amateur radio-astronomer by the name of Larry Baysinger, W4EJA, accomplished an amazing feat. According to NASA, the footage was converted for broadcast and uplinked to a satellite, then downlinked to Houston before it appeared on commercial television. I see the trail behind them what a spectacle! In July of 1969 a ham radio operator and amateur radio-astronomer by the name of Larry Baysinger, W4EJA, accomplished an amazing feat. After a 380,000 km journey, thecrew set foot on the Moon, walked upon it, installed scientific instruments, took samples, and thendeparted for Earth. Neil Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface on July 21, 1969, at 02:56 UTC; Buzz Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later. NASA has uploaded all of the audio to the Internet Archive, a nonprofit website that hosts cultural artifacts in digital form. Various experts had told him that it could not be done. Instead of a series of thrusters firing to move the Service Module away from the Command Module, shifting it to a different trajectory and eliminating the possibility of a collision, the way the thrusters actually fired put the entire mission at risk. The live auction will begin on July 20 at 11 am EDT. President Richard Nixon awarded the three men the Presidential Medal of Freedom the highest civilian award in the US. Those first four crewed trips to the Moon Apollo 8, 10, 11 and 12 could have all ended in potential disaster. ]]> The Apollo Command/Service Module was used for the Apollo program which landed astronauts on the Moon between 1969 and 1972. [1][2] It was confirmed that these tapes were shipped to Johns Hopkins University, but they could not be found by the search team. That final step alone, which returned the astronauts from their presence around to Moon after journeying back to Earth was one of the most crucial. "An intensive search of archives and records concluded that the most likely scenario was that the program managers determined there was no longer a need to keep the tapes since all the video was recorded elsewhere and they were erased and reused," NASA officials said in the statement. Rutherfords story briefly mentioned how Baysinger had been previously successful in constructing a device to detect radio signals from Jupiter and in tracking and reproducing pictures transmitted from Earth-orbiting satellites. CedTR Ara 11, website Unlimited 2 ndir, 7 Aralk tarihinde yaynlanan yar oyunudur. Apollo 11 landed 13 degrees, 19 minutes north latitude and 169 degrees, nine minutes west longitude July 24, 1969. Brown, flying about 450 miles (725 km) away from the re-entry point, reported the following: I see the two of them, one above the other. Video from those tapes was converted to a format which could be broadcast on television. The agency dismissed claims that it had lost footage of the first moonwalk. The space agency aims to send remote rovers to Mars by 2024, followed by manned crews in 2028. [9], The RCA scan converter operated on an optical conversion principle. Shortly after the. Going to Mars will involve all sorts of risks. Rutherford finished the story with Needless to say, the receiver worked to perfection Sunday night.. When I got back to Rutherford about how I was interested in the story and had found it in the July 23, 1969 Courier-Journal, he mentioned that Baysinger actually still lived in Louisville retired from a radio career but still active in ham radio. He independently detected radio transmissions from the Apollo 11 astronauts on the lunar surface. We have a tape of the air/ground [communication] during the launch phase. According to our records, the flight plan of Apollo 11 went off without a hitch. They are sometimes garbled and sometimes have long periods of no voice. [28], NASA held a news conference at the Newseum, in Washington, D.C. regarding the missing tapes on July 16, 2009 the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11's launch from Cape Kennedy. . Four days after that, the astronauts successfully returned to Earth, but that was not a foregone conclusion. Follow us on Twitter @Spacedotcom and on Facebook. The launch and this one corrective burn were so successful that the other three scheduled SPS maneuvers were not even needed. He expert said: During the 1969 Apollo Moon mission, after the landing, there was a very strange gap in radio transmissions. You can see the bits flying off. Others will follow, and surely find their way home. "I think that Apollo 11 is one of the biggest engineering accomplishments in human history," Greg Wiseman, an audio engineer at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston involved in the project,. Ed. It briefly described the antenna used for the lunar eavesdropping project a fully steerable 8 12 foot corner horn and it briefly discussed the amazing sensitivity of the receiver, which Baysinger specially modified for the lunar eavesdropping project. NASA's mission control center was, and still is, located in the nondescript Building 30 on the campus of Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. What is really interesting about that story though, is the fact that within 30 minutes of landing on the Moon, that story was circulating around NASA that, hey guess what, they saw something on the rim of the crater, they were all upset, they didnt know what to do, they didnt know if they should go out.. Baysingers wife and daughter watched the Apollo 11 landing on TV while Baysinger and Rutherford listened via Baysingers equipment. The combined original and copied fields created the first full 525-line interlaced frame and the signal was then sent to Houston. As NASA prepares to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing next year, it has released newly unearthed backchannel conversations from the mission to the public, giving us an unprecedented peek at what was happening behind the scenes. center-left of the image, consists of two types of thrusters that control both acceleration and orientation. Its contents were transmitted to the ground periodically during the mission. Rabie moved to New York to pursue a master's degree in science journalism at New York University. Maybe he could find out things that NASA did not want the public to know about. It is best to listen to the tapes while simultaneously viewing the same mission elapsed time on the transcript, since often the recordings are faint. It is possible that there had been other projects like Larry Baysingers and perhaps these projects were told in articles like Glenn Rutherfords.
