Apollo 11’s journey to the moon, How America became a superpower 2 days ago   05:14

The moon landing was a feat of engineering, accomplished through the careful deconstruction of a 3,000 ton spacecraft.

Apollo 11 launched on July 16, 1969, carrying Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on a journey to pull off humankind’s first moon landing. The eight-day journey was made possible by the careful deconstruction of the Saturn V rocket and Apollo spacecraft, and made use of a technique of docking components of the spacecraft in lunar orbit so the astronauts could land on, and then launch from, the lunar surface.

The earth is _flat!_

Fake...nasa deleted all the data...and say we dont have the technology now.. in 2019...are u kidding nasa?...it's that good to lie to all of humanity ...

Nasa created the WHOLE CONSPERICY... Satern 5 rockets ONLY made it into low Earths orbit. Nasa ALSO HAD CREATED A MIN OF 6 SIMULATION sets for the illussion of the Apollo missions. NONE ONE THE APOLLO FLIGHTS ever made it to the Lunar surface with Astronauts... The move sets WERE CALLED "THE MOON"... This conspericy is fueled by cover ups and gut wrenching hypocrites. HAS ANY SPACE CRAFT (becides the so called Apollo) MANNED OR UNMANNED EVER RETURNED TO EARTH's SURFACE...NO I didn't think so... So many people are lead to believe in something which never happened. Buzz Aldrin...what did he just say... At least he had the guts to admit "we didn't go there"
I loved this video!
Damn flat earthers in this comment section r all delusional and dumb. If they would fake the moon landing or the earth isnt round then people in the B.C era or middle ages are blind delusional stupid people. People like Da Vinci , Galileo r drug users? Smh. Kys flat earthers. You will go down as the most dumb theorist ever in the history of mankind.
One small step for A man
One Giant leap... for mankind

One gripe: a maneuver roughly as large is the trans-earth injection was needed to slow Apollo down to reach a stable lunar orbit. It wasn't just "pulled into orbit" by the moon. In fact, the trajectory(called a free-return trajectory) was specifically designed so that the mission could be aborted by skipping that maneuver, and letting the moon's gravity slingshot the ship back to Earth. This is important because it's one of the things that allowed the Apollo 13 astronauts to survive after the mission malfunctioned on the way there.

Man to the moon

It still common for me
It’s didn’t called Rocket Science for nothing.
This was 50 years ago imagine now with the technology advancement we have now the 2024 moon landing will be epic. Who’s excited?
Real deal
Not true, i need some fuel rocket for correction, otherwise it wouldnt just stay in orbit like that,
willy anguiano
hahaha , 2019 and some humans actually believe this nonsense. ask yourself why nasa has never gotten back after 6 consecutive trips 50 yrs back with calculator technology? why can they only fly on to "earths orbit" with today's technology! how were they able to fly over the van allen belts? its just contradiction after contradiction! open your fn eyes and start questioning this Disney bullcrap.
flat world
Apollo Hollywood lol space travel is fake
Ildar Karimov
Ha ha The moon landing was fake

Funny the way the graphics show a crater under the lander that the pictures etc didn't show, apparently it didn't even disturb any dust at all?
American And Proud of it
And the bullshit continues.......

Don't try to see the flags on the moon. That is impossible. Only try to realise the truth. There is no moon. Then you will find it's not the moon that you see but a reflection of light from what is only called the moon.
What you think you see as the moon is,
in fact a refracted reflection of the ice nodule from the center of the ice dome about 90 miles above us.
This is expressed in the clockwise reversed minorred rotation of the counter clockwise rotating dome; represented in the opposite flow of the sun moon and wondering stars/planets against the firmament canopy of fixed frozen stars (sonoluminecence).
The supposed crater patterns on the nodule/moon reflection also shows how the light illuminates the moon from right to left in all phases as the light reflects on and off within each 28 day piriod. Remember the reversed reflection and movement, due to the curved mirror effect, like a reflection of your face in a shined spoon.
It's all an optical illusion. This is how they can push their deception. This is also why so many will be lost to the Great Delusion of God for believing the Heliocentric lies of men.
yeah, sure... moon landing, aha...

Way to hard for 60's technology , what about bathroom , food, water and oxygen usage up for that time period...it sounds good....maybe they never went back because they can't fool any one any more as they did back then...and by the way I watched it live in 69 I was 6 and thought it was real....I still would like to believe it was real...did anyone see the video when the 3 were being interviewed and were look like 3 lying souls...their heads were down...if I went to the moon I would jumping up and down with excitement ...but they were not....nasa had everything to gain by lying....remember who controls the tv sets....Hollywood ....Gov ? two fakes from the get go...I'm not buying into this BS.....

2:07 Correction: Cuba seceded from the US in 1902.

With over 800 military bases around the globe, the US is easily the most powerful nation on earth. But it wasn't always this way. The US once played an insignificant role in global affairs. In this 8-minute video, you can see the transformation.
