According to NASA's own promotion of the rebroadcast, "Visitors can open this panel at any second of the mission and be able to hear such things as the flight surgeon threatening to quarantine the entire USS Hornet", the ship that recovered the capsule and astronauts in the ocean.
"It's actually quite fantastic that it's 50 years ago that this took place", he said. The moment's historical significance was felt all over the world.
File photo - From the deck of a boat, Janet Armstrong (nee Shearon), and her sons Mark (left) and Ricky, watch the launch of NASA's Apollo 11 mission to the moon, commanded by her husband, astronaut Neal Armstrong, Cape Canaveral (then known as Cape Kennedy), Florida, July 16, 1969.
Fifty years ago today, Apollo 11 began its voyage into American history.
The team will commemorate the Apollo 11 mission by wearing special hats during the game that feature the Apollo 11 mission emblem. "As our nation and others look to return to the Moon, we must preserve these sites for the historical, archeological, and inspirational value they hold".
NASA Live TV also rebroadcast the launch Tuesday morning, while Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins gave his perspective along with Kennedy Space Center Administrator Bob Cabana.
Their spacecraft took four days to reach the Moon, before the module known as "Eagle" touched the lunar surface on July 20, 1969.
Under a giant Saturn V replica, 900 people dined with former astronauts and von Braun's children. Mr Aldrin, 89, did not attend, while Mr Armstrong, who was their commander, died in 2012. "The program takes its name from the twin sister of Apollo and goddess of the Moon in Greek mythology". "It was the end of a 5-year period of intense, intense work". We landed, explored, got back up again, rendezvous-ed, came back. As we reflect on this milestone in space exploration, Collins will be joined by Apollo engineer JoAnn Morgan and Launch Director Charlie Blackwell-Thompson from the Launch Control Center. The SLS will surpass the Saturn V, the world's most powerful rocket to fly to date. A personalized armband was added to every spacesuit after Apollo 11, the NASA website says. Aldrin and Collins may reunite in Washington on Friday or Saturday, the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's moon landing.
