Apollo 12 Full Mission 01 (SCE to AUX)

 
BY: lunarmodule5

Published on Jul 25, 2016


The Apollo 12 full mission begins with the countdown and eventual launch on November 14th 1969 on the second lunar landing mission. Onboard are astronauts Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon and Alan Bean.

This video covers the last 3 hours _ of the countdown through to launch and orbit. The launch is infamous as the one that was struck by lightning, which caused electrical issues in the spacecraft but not to the Saturn V.

Audio used is the PAO countdown and at about the 1 min 30 seconds point the audio used is the PAO and the Flight Directors loop in separate channels. That loop includes John Aaron's call of "SCE to AUX".

Photos from the pre mission training and video are used to depict events as they happened approximately synched to the actual events. Orbiter Space Simulator AMSO is used for the simulated sequences where original footage is not available.

My thanks to Project Apollo on Facebook for support and providing photos for this series.

All photos, video and audio is courtesy NASA.

Apollo 12 - Trans Lunar Injection (Full Mission 02)

The second video in the full mission series of Apollo 12. Earth Orbit - the crew and MCC check that the lightning strike has not damaged any systems onboard the spacecraft or the booster. The platform is aligned and preparations are made for TLI. President Nixon talks to the launch control team.

This second part of the Apollo 12 mission contains the transcript for the air to ground, photos of the launch and footage of the LCC gathering of Pres Nixon. Where real time video is not available I have used Orbiter Spaceflight Simulator to depict how things might have looked.

Apollo 12 - Hello, Intrepid (Full Mission 03)

The third full mission video for Apollo 12 starts just after TLI. The S4B is positioned for the transposition and docking and the later ejection sequences. The crew show the sequences of docking to the Lunar Module Intrepid, earth shots, the S4B after ejection and interior views.

The audio sequences are incomplete in parts, and are noted in the text. Captions provide a reference to the timeline and photos/16mm sequence camera and simulator footage complete the picture of the first few hours of this flight.

All video/audio/photos are courtesy NASA

My thanks to Gary Scott (Houston controller and INCO on Apollo 13) for providing technical assistance.

Apollo 12 - Tuna Fish (Full Mission 07)

IMPORTANT Please note - Part 7 starts some 20 hours after the end of Part 6. This is because the audio from 32 hours GET to 52 GET is not currently available on the NASA audio archive. Once it becomes available I will upload Part 6a etc

Part 7 covers a 10 hour stretch of Day 3 including the infamous tuna fish event. Plans are made for the upcoming TV show.

Orbiter Space Simulator is used to depict the spacecraft as it might have been seen in flight. PTC is exagerated as the spacecraft rotation was in no way as fast as depicted.

Audio is courtesy NASA

Apollo 12 - Lights, Camera, Action! (Full Mission 08)

Day three is coming to a close and the crew give a nearly one hour TV presentation, of the LM inspection and exterior views of the Earth and Moon.

To cut down on the nearly 3 weeks it is taking me to put this series together I have decided to cut the captions except from PAO for the rest of this series. I would advise viewers to follow the action whilst reading the Apollo 12 Flight Journal which is available online and is an excellent resource.

I have used Orbiter Spaceflight Simulator to cover portions of the flight where video is not available.

Apollo 12 - Moonwalk Prep (Full Mission 16)

Apollo 12 - Moonwalk Prep (Full Mission 16)

The LM crew describe their landing site, Dick Gordon spots bot the LM and Surveyor 3 at the landing site and the LM crew press on with preperations for the first moonwalk.

For this video there is no live TV coverage, but I have added in some DAC taken from orbit by Dick Gordon. A variety of checklists and photos as well as some animation from the simulator is useed to depict events. Check lists do contain real time events. A transcript is begun again after the suits are donned which will continue through both moonwalks to come.

I could not have put this video together without sourcing information and photos from both the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal and the Apollo 12 Journal - both are invaluable tools in piecing the story together.

All audio and photos etc are courtesy NASA.

Apollo 12 - Moonwalking (Full Mission 17)

Apollo 12 - Moonwalking (Full Mission 17)

The first moonwalk begins. Pete Conrad descends the ladder with his infamous small step reference, takes a contingency sample and helps Al Bean descend the ladder. TV problems ensue and the first panoramas are taken. The Solar Wind Experiment is also placed on the surface along with the S Band Antenna.

This is the first of several videos dedicated to the moonwalks of Apollo 12 and would not have been possible without the assistance of the APoloo Lunar Surface Journal, who provided many of the cans of the checklists and my special thanks go to Brian McInall who has provided scans of his Apollo 12 LROC with superimposed annotations, which have enhanced this and subsequent videos. Many many thanks.

Apollo 12 - The Moonwalk We Never Got To See, Until Now (Full Mission Part 18)

Quote
This video shows EVA-1 from the point just after the TV camera failed through to the goodnight calls from Mission Control and PAO announcements overnight to conclude Day 5 of the mission.

LRO imagery has been used as an overlay for "mini" Pete and Al to traverse over. LRO gave us a clear indication of where the astronauts went (their footprint trail is clearly visible), where the AlSEP was laid out, rocks collected, photos taken and their visit to Middle Crescent before returning to the LM at the end of the EVA.

Using the slides created by Brian, we have been able to piece together the whole of the EVA and I have been able to edit all the pieces together to form an accurate record of what happened during the EVA.

As each photo is taken, the photo number will appear on the screen and an arrow will indicate the direction the picture was taken. The original photograph will appear by the side of the slide.

Checklists were taken from the cuff checklist and checklist handbook and reworked for ease of viewing. These appear on the left side of the screen periodically and follow the EVA as the astronauts used it to guide them through the tasks they had to complete.

Various diagrams and pre mission photos of the equipment used as well as all the ALSEP components are used periodically in appropriate places.

Orbiter Space Simulator is used for some of the CSM sequences when Dick Gordon in Yankee Clipper was in contact. I have also used some HD sequences from JAXA which show the lunar surface from orbit and Earth rise/set.

DAC footage that was taken from the Lunar Module after the EVA is added as well as all the post EVA pictures Pete and Al took from inside the LM and the pictures taken that day by Dick Gordon from lunar orbit.

Apollo 12 - Day 8 - Trans-Earth Coast (Full Mission 22)

Quote
Apollo 12 - Day 8 - Trans-Earrh Coast (Full Mission 22)

Day 8 of the mission continues. After crew wake up they perform a 5 second RCS mid-course correction to put Yankee Clipper into a more refined entry corridor. After the morning news the crew set the spacecraft with the S-Band Antennas facing the sun to analyse the effects of thermal heating on the array. There are then some P23s to align the platform followed by a water dump and the start of Passive Thermal Control (PTC) spin up. The crew also field more questions about the moonwalks.
