Working on a special series of pieces celebrating the Apollo program and our reach for the moon. It will focus on the missions and machines that took us to the moon. In my mind the key missions were: Apollo 4 - the first test of the Saturn V in the configuration that would take us to the moon; Apollo 8 - Our first trip to the moon, when we saw earthrise; Apollo 11 - when we set foot on the moon; and Apollo 13 - arguably our finest hour in space! Above is a loose concept of where I am going with the Apollo 4 piece.
Launch visibility for LADEE is from S. Carolina to parts of Canada, & west to Ohio border. Launch is Sept 6 @ 11:27.
