    We're going back to the moon, and we're going to need to train Astronauts how to land. This video is the result of trying to understand that control problem better. in the next video of this series, I'll show you footage from an actual NASA Lunar Lander software test I participated in many years ago. Also, I'd like to say express grateful I am to everyone who supports Smarter Every Day on Patreon at .

    @MaGaO true, but the software to land reliably is fairly new and getting better all the time. Most of the failed Mars landings happened without the benefit of the sensors and algorithms available now. It's still best to train the pilots of course.

  3. MaGaO

    @Almaadin Many Mars probes have crashed. If humans are aboard, it makes sense to train them just in case.

    @Almaadin that was done on gullible lol. Mars supposedly is 1% density of earth atmosphere. which means no air. an you need air to slow parachute and need air for lift when they eventually fly helicopter drone. so the impossible without air debunks your Mars landing 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭😭😂🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😭😭

  5. Almaadin

    I disagree with your thesis statement. After watching perseverance land itself, I think we could definitely automate landing on the moon. It is probably still a good idea to train astronauts to land on the moon but I don't think we HAVE to.

    Destin, I have a friend who has an LLTV sitting in his shed at work. I was fortunate enough to get a tour of his "work" and I can honestly say as much fun as it looks... yeah, no... His work is the same AFRC mentioned in your video. I was most impressed by the Peroxide thrusters mounted on every corner and axis of the unit. A tour of the Armstrong facility was the most incredible thing I have had the opportunity to experience. if you are ever there ask about the LLTV and perhaps they can take you to the closet for a look see. God Bless you man, I love your take on science.

    Another great video. It would be interesting to know more about the rocket motor that was on the lander and got it back to the orbiter. I had read something where the NASA engineers made it as simple as possible; without any electrical connections to reduce points of failure. It was basically just a mixing of two (2) chemicals by means of the turning of two (2) mechanical valves. Thanks in advance.

    I flew a test device in Grumman hangar 5 over a mosaic set of lunar photos. All I had was a mockup of the LM cockpit. I made 3 test landing attempts for evaluation data. 50 years later I toured the hangar at the Cape Canaveral facility and in an alcove next to the Saturn V rocket was the same unit I tested at the Grumman facility. I worked at Grumman for 30+ years on the A-6 Intruder , the F-14 Tomcat,and The JSTARS . Fun years!

    Hey, I know this video is about the moon, but I have had this question on my mind for a while now, and the recent Mars landing has brought it back again (and I can't think of anyone else to ask) so here goes... This is regarding the 7 minutes of terror: Do you think that it is possible for NASA to build signal amplifiers that would be strategically placed between Mars and Earth, and these would boost the signal enough to reduce the delay in communication time? Or is this still too far in the future? I'm thinking 2 or 3 satellites spaced evenly across the distance whose purpose is to catch and slingshot the signals back and forth... Thank you for your response (provided you get this message, or for anyone else who may have a theory/answer).

  64. Atlas

    The delay is because of the finite speed of light. There's nothing that can be done about that.

    Another reason why people suspect it is fake is because in 1960s, there were no integrated circuits. All computation was using vacuum tubes. There is no way that they could fit that many vacuum tubes into that small module to achieve the REAL TIME SIGNAL PROCESSING FOR LIVE BROADCASTING. Once you realize it is physically impossible with 1960s technologies, you will realize the truth. Hard science won't lie.

  100. Jin Kuang

    Jin Kuang2 kun oldin

    @Atlas You have no idea what you are talking about. Noise filtering is a main operation for real time signal processing. Back in the 1960s there is a big room in TV station doing it. In fact, not until 80s do we start having broadcasting vehicles small enough to fit into a van. And that is 1980s. Think about what is in 1960s when you need to fit a life supporting system AND a broadcasting system into that landing module.

  103. Jin Kuang

    Jin Kuang3 kun oldin

    Landing is relatively easy. Launching the heavy life support module back up to 300 miles orbit is hard, even with 1/6 gravity. That is the real reason why people suspect the US landing and returning are fake. If you have a chance to look at the return rocket combustion video, you will conclude it was a joke.

  104. Atlas

    AtlasKun oldin

    @Jin Kuang Just do the calculations yourself, if you really care that much. Blueprints are freely available to the public. I have no idea what you mean by 'technology data'.

  105. Jin Kuang

    Jin KuangKun oldin

    Do you know why so much evidence were destroyed due to "negligence"? These evidence should be the most valuable technology data and blue prints for humanity. But no ... they were accidentally destroyed. Now we can not go back to the moon! Fundamental contradiction on how technology progress. How US suddenly get to land on the moon on the first try (very disruptive in technology progressing) and how suddenly it simply disappear (very disruptive in technology progressing).

  106. Jin Kuang

    Jin KuangKun oldin

    @Atlas I have not seen one single video or documentation on the combustion fuel needed to propel this ascending module (life supporting) back to 300 miles high up in orbit. The only video I saw was that laughable shot from the "moon surface" video on the combustion capture.

    Seems like they could have solved their simulation problem by installing 4 smaller jets at each corner and throttle their lift to that of 5/6 the weight of the aircraft. Once they have done that, they could install the 5th main jet to move the 1/6 remaining weight and effectively have exactly what they would need on the moon. Then when they built the lunar landing craft they could do the exact same operation only to a 1/6 weight scale on the trust. Seems a lot simpler than building some giant platform crane that can in no way provide a consistent lift or 90° pull and will in no way be duplicatable on the moon.

    According to Don Pettit, we've lost the technology to go back to the moon. Maybe bc it was a Hollywood soundstage.

    We didn’t actually “lose the technology”, lol. We lost the infrastructure. Since you’re a flattard, look up what that word means.

    'According to Don Pettit, we've lost the technology to go back to the moon'. According to an idiot that means all the Apollo missions were a gigantic hoax....

    okay so i dont get it if we had to simulate the moon's gravity why not try the free fall thing, just in a very controlled environment where to simulate the moon's gravity?

    Mr. Wayne Ottiger I love that guy. I hope more people interviewed him, keep him company and leech off from his wonderful mind.

    Hold up are we being pulled down to the earth or is the earth pushing up against us? Honestly you should do a video on gravity, there are couple contradicting theories

    Great we’re going back to the moon hopefully start making a lunar base, but it’s cool to think nowadays there are literally hundreds of space simulators, what would take a couple months of calculating some numbers would take mins now

    are these now rendered obsolete by accelerometer and gyroscope like in a quadcopter drone?
