Above site ays the Saturn V could lift 250,000 lbs (125 tons) into earth orbit or 95,000 lbs (47.5 tons) to the moon. A NASA site says the last Saturn V had a payload of 116,000 pounds above the Instrument Unit.
21. http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse/SEhelp/ApolloLaser.html . Apollo Laser Ranging Experiments : average distance between the centers of the Earth and the Moon is 385,000 kilometers with an accuracy of better than one part in 10 billion.
22. http://www.skyimagelab.com/995ap11moonl.html Shortly after the flag was raised, Armstrong expressed the feelings of the crew in a conversation with President Richard Nixon, who called them from the Oval Office in the White House, some 240,000 miles away.
23. http:// www.georgefcram.com/education/6agl_10.pdf 238,900 miles that separate the earth and the moon.
25. According to CNN, "Just after he took over as NASA administrator, Sean O'Keefe said the Apollo technique (3 stage Saturn V) was simply too slow for exploration beyond Earth orbit." By my calculations, 6 to 8 years would be the travel time to Mars using a Saturn V system if it could be done. http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/...rs&Display=Facts Mars is 206,600,000 km s / 128,400,000 miles to 249,200,000 km / 154,900,000 miles from the earth. 52353 hrs / 71.6688819 months/ 5.97240683 years to 70519 hours / 96.5373118 months / 8.04477598 years. The first moon landing launched July 16, 1969; 09:32:00 am EDT. Four days later, 20 July 1969 at 04:17 p.m. EDT we landed on the moon. 20 Travel time 4 days, 6 hrs, 45 minutes. 102.75 hrs to travel between 225,700 and 252,000 miles 21 means the Saturn V system traveled an average of between 2196.59 and 2452.55 miles per hour. At that rate it would take.
I like to tip web sites. If you do too, here's a way. (PayPal or Credit Card.)
About Tips: I put this donation link up when I started getting over 2 million hits a day to see if the site would pay for itself. I personally like to tip when I have a good experience at a restaruant or when something really entertains me or makes my life better.
