Amazing Facts

Apollo





  1. All of NASA’s first 3 Apollo astronauts were killed in a fire during training because of faulty wiring
  2. There was only 30 seconds of fuel remaining, when Apollo 11’s lunar module landed on the moon

  3. During Armstrong’s liftoff from the moon, their launch control
    broke. Armstrong had to jam a pen into the controls in order to activate
    the launch
  4. As a traditional sign of peace, Buzz Aldrin planned to leave on the
    Moon a small gold olive branch, along with an Apollo 1 patch and two
    Russian cosmonaut medallions in honor of those killed in the space race.
    He forgot about this until the very last moment, and in haste simply
    tossed them unceremoniously onto the surface on his way back up the
    ladder. The astronauts also chucked out their moonboots, backpacks, a
    sack of garbage and their urine bags
  5. The astronauts had a lot of trouble planting the American flag in
    the hard lunar soil. Despite their effots, during the lift-off, Buzz
    watched as the Stars and Stripes indeed “toppled into the dust”
  6. During liftoff, Apollo 12 lost all its contols after being struck by lightning
  7. In Apollo 14, pilot Edgar Mitchell conducted his own extra-sensory
    perception experiment. The results? The number of correct guesses were
    reportedly less than would have been obtained by random chance.
