Launch of Apollo 11

On July 16, 1969, the huge, 363-feet tall Saturn V rocket launches on the Apollo 11 mission from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, Kennedy Space Center, at 9:32 a.m. EDT. Onboard the Apollo 11 spacecraft are astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, commander; Michael Collins, command module pilot; and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., lunar module pilot. Apollo 11 was the United States' first lunar landing mission. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the Lunar Module 'Eagle' to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the moon, astronaut Collins remained with the Command and Service Modules 'Columbia' in lunar orbit.

I was thinking more of the 'mapping spheres' from "Prometheus" the film.  Drop them down the hole and let them get on with it - well worth the mobile roaming charges.

I have enjoyed this and other celebrations of the Apollo program in the media this week. I remember very well following the Apollo missions in my childhood, and they strongly encouraged my pursuit of math, science and engineering.

A smartphone in space?  The roaming charges would be astronomical!
