Glynn Lunney Black Teamlunar ascent Insignia Apollo 11 insignia The Apollo 11 mission emblem was designed by Collins, who wanted a symbol for "peaceful lunar landing by the United States".
Low to suggest the Apollo 11 crew be less flippant in naming their craft. During early mission planning, the names Snowcone and Haystack were used and put in the news release. It also referenced Columbiaa personification of the United States. The Lunar Module was named Eagle for the national bird of the United States, the bald eaglewhich was featured prominently on the mission insignia.
The sunlight in the image was coming from the wrong direction; the shadow should have been in the lower part of the Earth instead of the left.
NASA officials felt that the talons of the eagle looked too "warlike" and after some discussion, the olive branch was moved to the claws. Armstrong was concerned that "eleven" would not be understood by non-English speakers, so they went with "Apollo 11";  they decided not to put their names on the patch, so it would "be representative of everyone who had worked toward a lunar landing".
Anthony dollar unveiled inten years after the Apollo 11 mission. This pin had been intended to be flown on Apollo 1 and given to Slayton after the mission; but following the disastrous launch pad fire and subsequent funerals, the widows gave the pin to Slayton. Armstrong took it on Apollo Actual site was site 2.
These were the result of two years of studies based on high-resolution photography of the lunar surface by the five unmanned probes of the Lunar Orbiter program and information about surface conditions provided by the Surveyor program.
The original requirement that the site be free of craters had to be relaxed, as no such site was found. The site needed to be smoothness, with relatively few craters; with approach paths free of large hills, tall cliffs or deep craters that might confuse the landing radar and cause it to issue incorrect readings; reachable with a minimum amount of propellant; allowing for delays in the launch countdown; providing the Apollo spacecraft with a free-return trajectory, one that would allow it to coast around the Moon and safely return to Earth without requiring any engine firings should a problem arise on the way to the Moon; with good visibility during the landing approach, meaning that the Sun would be between 7 and 20 degrees behind the Lunar Module; and a general slope less than 2 degrees in the landing area.
In MayApollo 10 flew to within 15 kilometres 9. The only change in the configuration of the command module was the removal of some insulation from the forward hatch. At on May 20, the 5,tonne 5,long-ton; 6,short-ton assembly departed the Vehicle Assembly Building atop the crawler-transporterbound for Launch Pad 39A, part of Launch Complex 39while Apollo 10 was still on its way to the Moon.
A countdown test commenced on June 27, and concluded on July 2. The launch complex was floodlit on the night of July 15, when the crawler-transporter carried the mobile service structure back to its parking area.
Along with a technician, he helped Armstrong into the left hand couch at Five minutes later, Collins joined him, taking up his position on the right hand couch. Finally, Aldrin entered, taking the center couch.
The closeout crew sealed the hatch, and the cabin was purged and pressurized. The closeout crew then left the launch complex about an hour before launch time. The countdown became automated at three minutes and twenty seconds before launch time.
