Apollo 11 Exploration of the Moon – Mapped

Infographic version of Neil Armstrong’s “hop and bounce” around the moon … other than driving out to right field to get a hot dog … wait, am I interpreting it right?

(full res version HERE).

With a baseball field underneath so you get a sense of scale … (there is a version over a soccer field for non-baseball playing countries).

Neil Armstrong chimes in to say it looks about right. (Put me in coach, I wanna …).

NASA pages on Apollo 11.

And of course the 4 ex-NASA employees who stole moon rocks (when they could not break into the 5′ foot safe, they just wheeled the entire safe out …). The FBI summary.

    looks like a big loogie.

    that trip into outfield is when they went to check on the Transformer, right?

    By “drive” they mean walk right? (Or bounce if you want to go there) Because Apollo 11 didn’t have the Lunar Rover. The headline is deceptive.

    (MET: Oops, I thought Apollo 11 was the one with the rover …).

    I was wondering why there was a baseball field on the moon for the first few seconds

    (MET: Ignore the alien built ballpark, it’s just a shadow or weather balloon).

    I was only 2 at the time, but my parents made sure to sit me in front of the TV to watch it. I only wish they had snapped a photo of me watching.

    As for Neil Armstrong, Boiler Up!!

    I remember watching that on black and white TV that we had… it seemed so surreal…

    Great trip back in time.
