Apollo presentation tess

The goal of the Apollo Program was to send astronauts
to the moon or outer-space. The Apollo started on No. 1
to No. 17 but last year a group of men made a
scary/spooky movie called ‘Apollo 18’. Apollo 11 was
the really big mission because Neil Armstrong and Buzz
Aldrin got to walk on the moon but
Michael Collins had to stay in the
Saturn V rocket.
Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the
moon on 20th July in 1969. Buzz Aldrin was the second
person to walk on the moon. After that 10 other people
walked on the moon so there was 12 people who
walked on the moon altogether.
Neil Armstrong - Apollo 11 - July, 1969
Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin - Apollo 11 - July, 1969
Charles "Pete" Conrad - Apollo 12 - November, 1969
(may have been scheduled to land again on Apollo 20,
though unlikely as he had already walked on the Moon)
Alan Bean - Apollo 12 - November, 1969
Alan Shepard - Apollo 14 - February, 1971
Edgar Mitchell - Apollo 14 - February, 1971
David Scott - Apollo 15 - July, 1971
James Irwin - Apollo 15 - July, 1971
John Young - Apollo 16 - April, 1972 (also on Apollo 10,
without landing)
Charles Duke - Apollo 16 - April, 1972
Eugene Cernan - Apollo 17 - December, 1972 (also on
Apollo 10, without landing)
Harrison Schmitt - Apollo 17 - December, 1972
The Saturn V rocket is the rocket that travelled to the
moon with at least three men on the Apollo missions.
Saturn V was a really fast rocket because it had a such a
lot of energy, fuel and power. The last Saturn V flew in
1973. All the parts of the Saturn V rocket are: Launch
Escape Tower, Service Module, Command Module,
Lunar Module, S-IVB Third stage and S-II Second Stage.
Height: 110.6 meters
(363 feet)
Diameter: 10.6 meters
(33 feet)
Total Mass: 3,008,500
kilograms (6,699,000 lb)
Payload (Earth Orbit):
118,000 kilograms
(260,000 lb)
Payload (Lunar Orbit):
47, 000 kilograms
(103,000 lb)
The captain was Neil Armstrong, the LMP was Edwin
‘Buzz’ Aldrin and the CMP was Michael Collins and they
were travelling to the moon on April 11th of 1970.
On Apollo 13 there was a really big explosion. The big
explosion was the oxygen tank. The oxygen was spraying
out white stuff called oxygen.
The only solution was to get into the Lunar Module. But
they weren’t allowed to use the power because they
got tolled not to by Houston.
The Lunar Module designed for 2. They fit the three of
them in. To get back to earth safely, they had to turn
the power for a little bit to get a head start to circle
around the moon because that was the way that it was
going. To get back to earth safely, they had to turn the
power for a little bit to get a head start to circle around
the moon because that was the way that it was going.
Because of the head start that made it a little bit easy to
get back home. It took about 3 days to get back home to
earth safely. Because of the boost they made it home
and landed in the water (with a parachute) like every
other mission does. One of the wasn’t happy when they
got home because he didn’t get to walk on the moon. 2
of the men stayed as astronauts and the other didn’t
want to have anything to do with it. 1 of the men who
stayed as an astronauts, became a politician and died
after that and the other got to go into outer-space again.
Australia was involved in the Apollo Program because
In one of the Apollo mission, they asked Australia to use 2 of
their radio telescopes because they were considered the
best in the world. The telescopes were from Canberra,
(Honeysuckle creek) if they didn’t have them then they
wouldn’t be able to communicate with Neil Armstrong and
Buzz Aldrin and all the other people the walked on the
moon. It was the Apollo 10 43rd anniversary on the 26th of
May 1969 in Honeysuckle creek. They also requested for a
backup station from New South Wales just in case the other
2 stations failed.
