Project Stars 1969 – The Eagle Has Landed

Stars 1969 by Max Qubit

This is my original ‘Stars’ video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bnrx1UY_-Fc … where I am playing the GForce impOSCar softsynth, remixed with Apollo 11 Moon landing film footage united by filmmaker Stephen Slater, working with archive film company Footagevault.

About the Apollo 11 footage: This split screen montage combines footage from four different cameras used by Nasa to capture the moment Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon on July 20 1969. While the images captured 41 years ago have regularly been seen, they have almost always lacked a synchronised soundtrack. Now filmmaker Stephen Slater, working with archive film company Footagevault, has united the visual material with recordings of the original mission audio. This video shows the moment the Lunar Module, called Eagle, separated from the Command Module, Columbia, to make its descent to the lunar surface. As the landing began, Armstrong reported they were “running long”. Eagle was four seconds further along its descent trajectory than planned, and would land miles west of the intended site.

Armstrong’s first words after landing were: “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.”
