31.000 personas posaron para este retrato. Sin las nuevas 'herramientas' (en este caso el video), dos cineastas alemanes -Lerch y Heltz- no hubieran podido lograr esta imagen sintética compuesta por los rostros simultáneos de 31.000 visitantes al Centro Georges Pompidou en 1983.

A tense dialogue and then 'The Eagle has landed'

Eagle's powered let-down to the moon on Sunday afternoon was a surpassingly suspenseful maneuver.The dialogue between Eagle, whose on-board computer kept ringing false alarms, and Houston--with occasional interpolations by Apollo Control--was heard by tens of millions. A part of the sequence follows.

---


CONTROL: Altitude about 46,000 feet,
continuing to descend. . . . 2 minutes 20
seconds [into the burn of the descent
engine]. Everything looking good.

EAGLE: Our position checks downrange
here seem to be a little long.

HOUSTON: Eagle, you are go--you are go
to continue power descent.

EAGLE: We've got good [radar] lock on.
Altitude lights out. . . . And the earth right
out our front window.

EAGLE: 1202, 1202!

CONTROL: Good radar data. Altitude now
33,500 feet.

EAGLE: Give us the reading on the 1202
program alarm.

HOUSTON: Roger. We got--we're go on
that alarm.

CONTROL: Still go. Altitude 27,000 feet.

EAGLE: [We] throttle down better than in
the simulator.

CONTROL: Altitude now 21,000 feet. Still
looking very good. Velocity down now to
1,200 feet per second.

HOUSTON: You're looking great to us,
Eagle.

EAGLE: Good, roger.

HOUSTON: Eagle, you're looking great,
coming up 9 minutes.

CONTROL: We're now in the approach
phase, looking good. Altitude 5,200 feet.

HOUSTON: You're go for landing. Over.

EAGLE: Roger, understand. Go for landing
3,000 feet.

EAGLE: 12 alarm. 1201.

HOUSTON: Roger, 1201 alarm.

EAGLE: We're go. Hang tight. We're go.

2,000 feet. 47 degrees.

HOUSTON: Eagle looking great. You're go.

CONTROL: Altitude 1,600 . . . 1,400.

33 degrees. 600 feet, down at 19 . . . 540
feet . . . 400 . . . 350 down at 4. . . .
We're pegged on horizontal velocity. 300
feet, down 3 1/2 . . . a minute. Got the
shadow out there . . . altitude-velocity
lights. 3 1/2 down, 220 feet. 13 forward.
1 of 2 22/02/00 11:47 p.m..11 forward, coming
down nicely . . . 75 feet, things looking good.

down. Faint shadow. 4 forward. Drifting to
the right a little.

HOUSTON: 30 seconds.

EAGLE: Drifting right. Contact light. Okay,
engine stop.

HOUSTON: We copy you down, Eagle.

EAGLE: Houston, Tranquillity Base here.
The Eagle has landed.

HOUSTON: Roger, Tranquillity, we copy
you on the ground. You got a bunch of
guys about to turn blue. We're breathing
again. Thanks a lot.
