      But they traveled more than that since they went around the earth and moon to get sling.

    3:15 Um I Think They Had To Fire The SPS On The Service Module To Enter Lunar Orbit! But Great Video!

                        The Earth's orbital speed around the Sun is claimed to be approximately 67,000 mph. The Moon is claimed to orbit the Earth, so under this model, the Moon is therefore also moving 67,000 mph around the Sun. Once the Apollo spacecraft broke free of Earth's orbit, it must still be traveling at 67,000 mph in orbit around the Sun. First of all, why is the human speed record claimed to be only 24,790 mph by the Apollo 10 mission? More importantly, how did the Apollo spacecraft and crew manage the 67,000 mph orbital speed around the Sun while being outside the protection of the Earth's atmosphere?

                          1) The 67,000 mph is _earth_ moving relative to the _sun;_ the 24,790 mph is relative is _Apollo_ relative to the _earth._
                          2) Apollo was moving 67,000 mph relative to the sun is because it was on the earth; it was in orbit around the sun too! You don't just lose that speed because you're suddenly outside the atmosphere.

                        I appreciate this video because it's the best conceptual representation of how the Apollo missions occurred. I always thought I had a pretty good idea of how the spacecraft worked but didnt realize they disconnected and rotated 180 to attach to the lunar module. Very nice video!

                            I can't believe they did all of that seamlessly without any hiccups or catastrophic failures (especially that 360 maneuver) in 1969 while it took Musk like 3 or 4 failed launches just to make it to outer orbit in early 2000's???

                                Both the ascent module and the service module had rockets, so your premise is false. They had rockets.

                                The Ascent module and then the SM (Service module) rocket was used.
                                However none of it was real so they merely got the bus from the studio: easy!

                              Awesome animation. Please excuse my OCD, but at around 3:15 they had to fire the engine as a break in order to actually get into lunar orbit.

                                4:21 Everybody that worked on the Apollo mission and really every particle of humanity is somewhere in that picture except for 3 Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, The crew on Apollo 11, Earth looks so small, insignificant, fragile.

                                                @TimReed22222 (C) There's no meaningful atmosphere on the Moon, so, no aerodynamic shrouds needed, which reduces the mass of the launch vehicle even further.

                                                They used hypergolic fuels, 2 chemicals that explode on contact! One of those 2 chemicals is an oxidizer. Guess what's in the oxidizer.

                                                They didn't need a multi-stage rocket to take off from the moon because (A) the mass they had to launch was very small and (B) the moon's gravity is much lower than earth's.

                                                  You are basically admitting you cannot prove the Apollo missions were real. I agree: you can't.

                                                  yeah, i said the audio was kinda convincing, i know radio was invented earlier, followed by many innovations, but the video was not. i tried to google and found that satellite broadcasting was still initiated in the 1960s. if they used it, there would be a lot of flaws in the video, but the quality was good (like old handy-cam). i doubt they used uhf to transmit images since the range is about 60 km.

                                                  fulhit badr -“I just can’t believe the live broadcast”

                                                  Why not? Radio waves travel forever at the speed of light. All you need is a transmitter and a sensitive enough receiver. Ham radio operators have been using earth moon earth communications since the ‘40s.

                                                Me watching this because me and my friend are having a space race on kerbal space program and we’re not allowed to directly search up how to get to the moon on kerbal space program so I decided to see how it happened irl

                                                  NASA created SIX movie simulaiton sets called "the moon" I can absolutely believe that people still believe that NASA sent man to the Lunar surface.... One of these movie sets was in Hawaii near the base of several volcanos... Now NASA claims that there were these hills on the moon and you can see them in the Apollo filming.... HOWEVER...these hills are the SAME HILLS which are located in Hawaii. Films like this generate billions... Just like a movie at the theater... the Apollo movies have generated billions. It is funny how sooo, many people are convinced that NASA actually sent man physically to the Lunar surface.... Its an ILLUSION people. WHY, RECENTLY NASA anounced that they COULD NOT return astronauts back to Earth's surface once they have left Earth's low orbit...? WHY would NASA announce that ANY MISSIONS outside of Earth's low orbit would be ONE-WAY ONLY...? Ask yourself this question: IF NASA was capable of sending man to the Lunar surface in the 60s, why is it impossible to sent astronauts back with today's technology....? It SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY no problem to send man to the Lunar surface in the old space craft technology... RIGHT...!! All the people who believe this is possible....send you $$$$ to NASA.

                                                    every body except usa knows that by faking nasa went to moon using apollo saturn 5 rocket within 4 days from earth to moon
                                                    crew landing andd closest distance from earth to moon is 360000 kms that means 90000 kms per day 90000/24 =3750 km/s per hour 63kms/min almost 1 km/second and nowa days they are not sending to space anything with that speed

                                                      Chaitu Lion - so, why do you think “but but BIG NUMBERS!!” means they couldn’t go to the moon?

                                                      Every ship that reaches LEO is going at 8 km/s just by being in orbit. The effort to reach the moon isn’t that much more.

                                                    This is the original flight path from the official packet and flight plan at the time of Apollo 11. Where is the flight path that they used to go around the Van Allen belts? This may need to be updated to reflect that.

                                                          So while flying to through space, they detached, flipped around, and reattached...how do you even test that before hand? Oddly enough that, and launching back into moon orbit and reattaching and heading home, they feel like very impossible.
