The National Geographic cover story on the first satellite of the satellite team is out today.
We’ve covered satellite technology before.
But the satellite that eventually landed on the moon had a whole other set of challenges.
The launch of the Apollo 11 mission in 1969 took place in a remote area of the Moon called “Apollo Base Camp.”
In that time, the Apollo astronauts were still recovering from the effects of the first lunar landing.
They needed to be able to return to Earth and get to their families.
NASA wanted a spacecraft that could land safely and safely.
The team’s first attempt to land on the Moon came in 1976.
It was a test flight.
After the spacecraft successfully touched down on the lunar surface, it was given the name Apollo 7.
In order to do this, the team had to find a way to keep the spacecraft from getting destroyed.
A rocket called the Apollo 1 booster flew into orbit.
While the spacecraft was in orbit, it would send data back to Earth in an attempt to keep it alive.
However, the spacecraft would not survive the trip to the Moon.
NASA didn’t want to leave its astronauts stranded in space.
So in 1981, they used a modified version of the Saturn V rocket to try to land the spacecraft on the surface of the moon.
With all the debris that the rocket had to contend with, the Saturn rocket would fail.
Instead of getting hit by the Saturn, the rocket would fall back to earth.
Eventually, the crew managed to land a rocket on the base camp.
As a result, NASA was able to get the astronauts out of lunar orbit.
And that was the end of Apollo 7, and the beginning of the beginning.
