Apollo 11 The Complete Descent. Fifty years ago two people took a trip to the moon. Watch the video and follow the journey to the moon.

A detailed account of every second of the Apollo 11 descent and landing on the moon. The video combines data from the onboard computer for altitude and pitch angle. Also 16mm film that was shot throughout the descent at 6 frames per second, and audio recording from the air/ground transmissions and the mission control flight director loop with subtitles.

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC.

They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth

    The thing that made the landing special is because my dad worked on the rocket that landed the USA on the moon; he worked at Rocketdyne in Canoga Park, California from 1954 to 1975 when he retired.

    Now, there is a man, Bart Sibrel, who thinks that the US didn’t land on the moon, but he is mistaken, and too pig headed to admit it. I removed what Mr. Sibrel wrote, and replaced it with this:
