DISC 2; LUNAR SURFACE EVA
Television from the lunar surface was via a black and white camera. Initially, this camera was attached to the modular equipment stowage assembly (MESA) which was lowered to a position off to the side of the ladder. After Armstrong and Aldrin were on the surface, the camera was placed on a tripod and moved to a location in order to present an overall view of activities. Westinghouse manufactured the lunar surface television camera. The scan rate was 10 frames per second at 320 lines of resolution.
The crew also carried a 16mm data acquisition camera (DAC) which captured an overall view of the first half of the moonwalk from a position in the lunar module pilot's window. This Mauer 16mm camera was fitted with an 18mm wide angle lens, and ran at speeds of 1, 6, 12 and 24 frames per second. Still photography on the surface used a Hasselblad 70mm camera.
Disc 2 contains the television, film and still photography from the lunar surface, arranged by on-the-fly angles you can access through your DVD player's angle button. During part one, the first angle is a composite of 16mm, TV, and Hasselblad images, the second angle is the TV transmission full screen, and the third angle is the 16mm film full screen. In part two, only the first two angles are present, as the film magazine in the 16mm camera had ended.
Two audio tracks are also available on-the-fly by using the audio button on your DVD player. By choosing track one you'll hear the air to ground transmission and public affairs officer. Track two is astronaut commentary from the post-flight debriefing.
The first lunar surface EVA was designed to test the ability of man to work in the lunar environment, collect samples for investigation on Earth, and to deploy a small number of experiments. Neil Armstrong was outside the lunar module for two hours and thirty-one minutes.
Buzz Aldrin spent one hour and fifty minutes outside the spacecraft. Man's first moonwalk was considered a complete success.
