Apollo 11: the New web site replays the first moon landing mission in real-time

Ben Feist, a new web site, “Apollo 11 in Real Time” replays from the first lunar landing mission, 50 years later.

With just a single click, which is a new web site, you can go back 50 years and take place in real-time, the action of the first lunar landing mission.

However, when the Apollo 11 in Real-Time,” creator Ben Feist of the law, it will make you want to click a lot more often than just once.

“You can just leave the mission in front of you. However, if you want to dig in, it’s a deep and wide rabbit hole of information that I could think of,” said Feist in an interview with the collectSPACE.com. “I’ve been trying to make it worth the effort to explore it.”

Feist’s website ApolloInRealTime.org reps from NASA’s Apollo 11 mission as it happened, second by second. The web site, the coverage will begin 20 hours before the launch, which took place on July 16, 1969, and will continue to, just after Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins climbed aboard the USS Hornet recovery ship, on the 24th of July. It makes use of all of, and only of, the mission statement, photos, movies, tv shows and much, much more — all of them are synced to the Ground, Elapsed Time, and the mission of the master clock.

“If you would like to see a particular picture, for example, to make the whole experience a jump at the moment the picture is taken. If you want to study the lunar samples, which can be found at the time of the sample in the container to be filled,” Feist, is described.

The site, however, goes much further than the organisation of the well-known media. Apollo 11 in Real-Time at present, tens of thousands of hours of audio, and, as the case may be, of the respective images, which has rarely been seen and has never been accessible until now.

“With the help of the archivist, and Stephen Slater, to the web-site is the most comprehensive presentation of the mission of the historical film has ever been assembled,” said Feist. “It includes all of the 16 mm film is scanned for the the recent documentary, ‘Apollo 11.’ A lot of this movie had the sound on for the first time, carefully lip-synced to the recovered transmission control data had just been digitized.

“It’s pretty much guaranteed that visitors will see things they have never seen before,” he said.

They will hear things they’ve never heard of it. At the core of the site, it is in the less than 11,000 hours of use, Mission Control audio that is in sync with the mission of the bell for the first time.

For each point in the mission, and allows visitors to open a window that allows 50 channels of audio for each of the monitoring positions in the Mission Control, and a variety of other communications loops described in Feist. For example, if you want to listen to what the Coaching officer in charge of computer operations), said that during the landing on the moon, and the crew will be in touch with the famous program alarms, just to cast a vote. Then you can go back to the top of the landing again, but this time to listen to the CapCom [capsule communicator], or FIDO [flight dynamics officer], etc., etc.

“I’ve been doing my best to make this website a tool that will allow people to explore the use of the mission’s activities have been carried out ‘behind the scenes’,” he said.

Feist had previously produced a similar site for the Apollo 17 mission, the last mission to land man on the moon, and it was because of this site that he was hired to fix the audio for the director, Todd Douglas Miller’s documentary, “Apollo 11,” was released by NEON and CNN Films.

Both of these projects, and the multi-year process of the building of the Apollo 11 in Real-Time, does Feist have a fresh appreciation for the purpose of classification.

“It runs through the whole of the mission, it is well worth the effort. You really get to know the personalities of the crew and the controllers. It feels very modern, as if it is happening right now,” he said.

And, beginning on July 16, the — plus-50 years of age.

“During the anniversary, click on the ‘here and Now’ of the start button, puts you in the mission will be exactly 50 years later, in the second,” said Feist. “If I had my way, all of humanity would have to take a moment in their busy lives, tune in, and enjoy the scale of what humanity can achieve when we work together.”
