A detailed account of every second of the Apollo 11 descent and landing. The video combines data from the onboard computer for altitude and pitch angle, 16mm film that was shot throughout the descent at 6 frames per second. The audio recording is from two sources. The air/ground transmissions are on the left stereo channel and the mission control flight director loop is on the right channel. Subtitles are included to aid comprehension. This is part of the Apollo Flight Journal, Apollo 11 collection.

Week 7

Introduction

In this activity, you will use a model to learn how objects are launched into space.

Is it possible to put an unpowered object into orbit?

 

Procedure

Below is a picture of the starting screen of a model of Newton's Cannon.

To run the model, press the Turn On button and leave it on; it will turn black when it is on. Then press the Launch button. If the satellite crashes, you will see an explosion and a pile of debris to mark the crash site.

  • Leave the “turn on” button on (black) to run the model.
  • The chart records the settings and how far the satellite went before crashing.
  • “Erase dots” cleans up earlier runs.
  • The slider labeled MainScale changes the scale of the Earth. If the satellite goes off the screen, reduce the scale until you can see it.
  • The Model Speed slider makes the model run faster or slower. You can speed it up if you get tired of waiting!
  • The atmosphere, though visible in the model to give a sense of scale, has no effect on the satellite.
