Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Playlist


July 20th, 1969 was one of the most important
days in space and science history. It was the day that the Apollo 11 mission
landed on the lunar surface. The day humans walked
on the Moon for the first time. The day we explored another world. This event and the missions that followed
it taught us so much about our closest neighbor, but even more than that, they showed us what
humans are capable of. And maybe unsurprisingly, they proved that we can accomplish a lot if we
just put our minds to something. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo
11, and we here at SciShow, along with creators all over YouTube, have
been making special videos to celebrate. Our team decided to honor this mission by
producing our first-ever documentary: an episode called “Was the Apollo Program
a Bad Idea?” In it, we travel all over the country trying to get
answers about the program’s risks and rewards. Because while Apollo is totally worth celebrating,
it was also really hard to pull off, and it kind of makes you wonder if all of
our success was just good luck. To explore this question, we talked to some
fascinating people, including some YouTube experts you might recognize. And we hope that you’ll check out our episode
after this. But we’re not the only creators celebrating
this milestone. There’s some amazing content out there,
and in this playlist, we’ve put together some of our favorite
Apollo-themed videos. So whether you’re learning about the lunar
landing for the first time or got to watch it live when it happened, we hope you will enjoy them and I’m sure
you’re gonna learn something new.

    I swear that I had a teacher in Sussex that's swears that we did not land on the moon and that it was a fake production directed by Stanley Kubrick. And also something like Richard Nixon even you it was fake and made comments about it being fake. I'm not even joking. I can even give this teacher's name and the exact school if anyone wants to investigate this as to why a teacher is spreading this kinds of information to children.

    Oh I thought this would be SciShows recommendation of music to mark the Apollo landing (I listen to filk, so there are more of those than you'd expect). I'm excited to watch the actual playlist and learn some things. But I'm also going to recommend the song a Toast to the unknown heroes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zotaRLROtw&list=PL8394E70A4DB81B5D&index=4) as a song honoring those oft forgotten people who worked to make the Apollo landing possible.

    Sucks that space is fake though lol, kids just believe this crap because they love cartoons and cgi. Gravity turn on a rocket is fake news it would expel far more energy then going straight up, it is landed in the ocean destroying are reefs. Fake x just has the ability to catch them on a ship instead of crashing them.

    The solar radiation on the moon while standing on it would be so stong youd get radiation sickness and probably die in a matter of hours. We never went there, πŸ‘ and dont say they had protective gear, unless they were wearing full lead its impossible we dont have any other protective material that would stop that level of radiation.

    Has it been that long? I was 19 when it happened. I was just 11 days short of being 11 when Gagarin took his flight. So, there were only 8 years between the first space flight and the first (well, the only so far) Moon landing. And now, fifty years after that, that is still the farthest any human has ever gone to? WTH?

    My dad was telling me a story about when they were watching the moon landing he was 6 and my grandfather who was a hardcore no nonsense ww2 veteran actually cried when Neil Armstrong made his speech and my grandfather said β€œI never thought I would see that”. The moon landing was more then a science experiment it was a world wide social shift in how people view the human race and what we can accomplish if we work together

    I guess form our privileged position fifty years in the future. It's difficult to imagine a time when the Apollo missions weren't obviously going to be a success. Six successful missions seems to confirm our confidence. But Apollo 13 stands as a reminder of just how fragile and dangerous the program was. The fact that Nixon had a speech written and ready to deliver should the Apollo 11 astronauts have died is telling. That for all our national bravado. We were basically strapping pilots in to a bomb and hoping we did all the math right.

    I've heard that there's no such thing as luck in space exploration. Because, if you attribute failure to luck, you can avoid blame and won't learn from your mistakes. Ether you did a good job or a bad one. And you need to prepare yourself to learn from both. I wasn't alive for the Apollo missions. But I was alive to see Challenger go up in flames. That was my first real memory of space flight since it made big news.

    The Apollo program wasn't a bad idea, no. It was a big idea with stupendous risks involved and a lot riding on it politically and internationally. It's important to step back and remember that it wasn't always guaranteed to work. The whole world really did hold it's breath.
