Other Apollo Missions
« on: May 24, 2021, 01:34:09 am »
I tried looking around briefly if this question had already been asked and answered but didn't see anything.

Is there a chance other Apollo missions will be added to this site?

I'd love to hear the Apollo 8 mission since it is the first trip to the moon. Apollo 12 would be awesome too with the lightning strike after take off and hearing John Aaron in action earning his "steely eyed missile man" name. And I'm sure all the missions have amazing parts of them that I'm not aware of.
Thanks for this amazing site!

Yes! We're working on Apollo 16 now. It probably not going to be ready for the 50th anniversary, but we'll try.

It'll take a while for all of those tapes to be restored. I would be interested to hear Apollo 7 myself to hear how mission control, and in particular Glynn Lunney, reacts to Wally Schirra's wanton insubordination. That said, they probably wouldn't say anything too critical of the astronauts on the loops...

Apologies if this is an obvious answer one way or the other, but is this going to include the Mission Control audio as well, or will it be like 17?

I've been keeping my eye on the relevant NSF grant page and the project is clearly going ahead but I can't tell where they actually are, if anywhere, with further digitization of the tapes. It's clearly planned, though, and the project is due to end in 2023, so here's hoping. https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=2016725&HistoricalAwards=false

Needless to say I know that everyone involved in all of this is doing all they possibly can! This has been such an amazing resource and it will be wonderful to hear and see more, in whatever order it comes. (But yes, if I were wishing I would put in a vote for 7 or 8.)
