The Science

A trajectory is the path followed by a moving object.  In this case, it is the path that Apollo 11 took from the Earth to the moon. Apollo 11 was the first ever spaceflight that landed humans on the moon. This was designed to be a free-return trajectory, meaning the gravity of the moon allowed the space shuttle to return to Earth without any propulsion. The larger circle represents the Earth and the small one represents the moon. These are both scaled accurately with the moon being 27% the size of the Earth, while the trajectory is not to scale.

 

The Saturn V rocket launched from Kennedy Space Center on July 16, 1969. After liftoff, one and a half orbits were taken around the Earth. Then the orbit was broke and the space craft moved toward the moon. On July 19 lunar orbit was entered. Astronaut Michael Collins stayed about the Command Module Columbia, while astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong took the lunar module to the surface. The astronauts touched down on the moon July 20. To hear the moment of the landing, click on the audio clip to the right.The astronauts spent just over 21.5 hours on the surface. Their entire roundtrip journey lasted just over eight days.
