      Before the ticker-tape parades and the heroes' welcome home, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, the U.S. astronauts responsible for successfully putting America's first moon . Mission plans called for the astronauts to photograph possible landing sites for future missions. Before this, only robotic probes had taken images of the Moon's far side. As the astronauts in their spacecraft emerged from behind the Moon, they were surprised and enchanted by an amazing view of Earth rising over the lunar horizon.

    The astronauts were big on sports and flashy cars, but weak in the classics. Mike Collins, who combined the fastest game of handball (nobody could even come close to beating him) with a taste for literature, used to say that the space program needed more English majors to get away from the engineerese in the exhaustive checklists.   The easiest way was to jump. That got them off the Moon for a few seconds. Indeed, they found that the easiest way to cover any significant distance was to do a sort of kangaroo hop. Or do you mean, how did they permanently leave? They used the si.

    Astronauts would face the same problems on a manned mission to Mars, so much of the experience gained on the moon would carry over when NASA eventually sends people to the Red Planet. The moon could also provide some creative commercial opportunities: lunar power from solar cells, protected data archives, mining of lunar metals, and research. On J , NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people to set foot on the dusty surface of the Moon. Ten other American astronauts followed. They collected hundreds of pounds of lunar soil and rock samples, conducted experiments .

Six others remained in lunar orbit aboard their Apollo spacecraft command modules. One mission, Apo was. Landing on the moon was an amazing feat for mankind, but to make the most of the trip, astronauts had to conduct scientific research so that we could learn from the experience.

This is also why the moon has phases. When the astronauts went to the moon, they wanted to be on the side facing Earth so they could communicate with us, and also they wanted to be in the sunlight so they could see and also get power to their solar arrays.

So they went around the full moon. Apollo 12 was the sixth crewed flight in the United States Apollo program and the second to land on the was launched on Novemfrom the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, four months after Apollo Commander Charles "Pete" Conrad and Apollo Lunar Module Pilot Alan L.
