Description

Apollo 8 - Splashdown (Full Mission 42) This video covers the145 hr to recovery point in the mission, specifically the SM jettison, re-entry , splashdown and final recovery to the Aircraft Carrier Yorktown. This is the final video in the series. I would like to thank all those who have supported and given guidence through the past year, including Jim Lovell who continues to give encouragement and all the viewers on Youtube. Audio is presented in two channels at some points. Headphones are advised. The video is presented in 16:9 to allow use of photos and captions on the right of the screen. Captions are used to show PAO and other events. NOTE - Orbiter Space Simulator is used to depict events as they were happening in real time, although I do not claim attitudes/spacecraft orientation are correct. I sourced the Apollo 8 Flight Journal to assist with photo placement and audio editing. I would recommend the viewer using this as an aid whilst listening as it gives great descriptions of the technical details of the flight as it happened and explains, in laymans terms what is going on. All video, photos and audio is courtesy of NASA.
