Bruno Stanek, the White house had prepared the moon landing Failure – with a ready Eulogy. They also had a Plan B for your Live commentary?
in all seriousness, we have talked in the Studio of the "black tie". I considered myself emotionally to the calculations of Nasa: An Expedition to succeed with 90% probability, and the astronauts come back to 99 per cent live. So it came then, with seven missions, six of which are successful up to the moon landing, and one, Apollo 13, at least back to earth.
What was 50 years ago, the most exciting Moment for you?
The last ten minutes before landing. All the Rest had been tested in the main sample: the approach on the identical trajectory to an altitude of 15 kilometers above the moon's surface and return, and coupling with the mother ship in 111 kilometers altitude. During the descent on the stairs of the lunar lander, I expected no problems, although you had saved reasons, the bottom step of a staircase from the weight.
From the giant leap for mankind, Neil Armstrong announce, remained in the manned space flight little.
The reasons I see clearer than it was then, as it was called, only a dictatorship is so monumental, and then, as the United States had won the race to the moon, only a state organization could. Recent advances have provided evidence that motivated the pioneers in private companies the same benefits bring faster and for 10 percent of the cost of comparable state programs. If this is difficult to comprehend, then think of the Stagnation of the once-hugely-funded Russian space in front of the eyes, or the long-term, at least, the technological Stagnation of the Chinese.
What has brought the race to the moon in the world?
by-products from the Apollo project of Nasa, led to not less than 1200 patents, which brought the Non-Profit world space authority although no direct financial Benefit, but the United States. Throughout the world studies have shown that each in the space research unit of currency invested, the gross national product has increased by an average of four times. Already, Churchill harbored the suspicion that the technique in the era of space travel would go a lot faster than before. He was right, and there are hundreds of arguments for the Benefit of the space – satellite communications, global Navigation, resource exploration, earth observation, weather forecasts. In China or India, you have to explain to the people less than in Europe.
The Poet W. H. Auden described the moon landing as a "phallic Triumph".
Here you would have to ask the Poet what he meant exactly. Maybe but you have to ask better, one of the astronauts, their comprehensive fitness exams exceptionally potent people, including many female brought to the light of a promotion.
A less lyrical criticism of the space is: First of all, down here to clean up before we colonized new worlds.
There had not remains of man is now 10'000 or at least 2000 years of time, and so a lot of time for him now to clean up. At this point, I have come across in 50 years, a lot of inconsistencies. In radio interviews about the Mars colonization has been referred to as unnecessary, but the last question was, but then, when you can take a vacation. If meteorites have again done great damage, the person has had, once again, good luck, then one dare hardly think of the Situation when the crash of a larger celestial body is exceptionally announced with a few days warning. Also some alien uninformed know by now that you can in a timely manner to distract the smallest planet discovered to safe paths. This would then be the first Paniker, which would require that "Nasa" used him. Otherwise, there is behind nothing to clean up.
Last updated in 1972 was a man on the moon. What time is it again? And what nationality will he have?
If everything goes according to plan, the company SpaceX Elon Musk, the capacity, in five years, a manned lunar circumnavigation, as once Apollo 8 at Christmas 1968 – and to land, perhaps only five years later, also on the moon. Someone, the it a half or whole billion value is to see the earth from afar on the horizon of the Moon, will have the Chance. A Japanese has already been posted. The flight, however, with some of the American astronauts as Flight Attendants.
As you see the achievements of China in the world space?
For years, a manned Chinese space flight only takes place every few years. Risk is to be turned off at the cost of extreme deliberation. If we look at the recent unmanned landing on the moon is back, then it comes to the classification as a successful Propagandacoup. To land on the side facing away from the moon side Autonomous, is not apart from the more demanding communication more difficult. This was recognized by observers, as the media had already labeled as difficult. Since the spicy Details of the image are transmission leaked, is becoming more and more clear, how much you need to get the Chinese to technology today, in the West, whether legal or espionage.
And what is the role of Europe?
Currently, a precarious. After the expensive Ariane 5 rocket, it is in urgent need of the Ariane 6, but in the face of much-too-small flight rates, the development is not viable. Europe is also involved in Nasa's own lunar mission with the SLS rockets from the Shuttle's estate (a billion dollars per flight!) and the already outdated Orion capsule. The ESA would deliver the service module, but it is uncertain whether this will ever fly. The Russians are no longer expected, because the employee was just too expensive for Nasa, which has been overtaken by private competition. The mixed scientific-tourist development at the Moment is the Only thing that is both affordable and profitable.
The Swiss astrophysicist Kathrin Altwegg called manned missions to Mars the other day, "boy träumli".
The subsidized pusillanimity is fear of embarrassment, as well as the Nasa Moonwalker Armstrong and Cernan had to learn that Elon Musk had underestimated what relates to the re-use of rocket-only levels.
the private entrepreneurs win the race to Mars?
Yes. The state can prevent it. 2025 to 2030, the question should be answered definitely. The space, instead of the war, is the father of all things, and commercial projects instead of the taxpayers will pay for it.
The moon is, today, only as a stopover on the way to Mars. Why?
The direct flight to Mars is still the preferred method, until one is sure to be found at the moon's South pole water ice and dry ice (CO2), the methane and the oxygen is easier in the Mars ships carry as out of the gravity hole of earth.
There is deep in Mars ' interior micro-bacterial life?
It is increasingly unlikely. The people on Mars are we.
And God? According to the physicist Stephen Hawking the universe needed no Creator. Your Opinion?
Here has expressed Hawking even for me to understand.
Is the Mars landing for the same amount of attention as the moon landing?
The TV of 50 years ago was a one-time appearance, and affected all layers of the population. Today's big events are only followed by a mixture of Science Fiction friends and of the technical intelligentsia.
Who would be in the case of a manned Mars landing your preferred Live-commentator?
I don't know, and perhaps it needs no more.
Would you fly if you could?
In the first Generation, it is in need of adventurers. With 75, I'm not.
