From our space agency SJOERD VAN DER WERF AMSTERDAM, 24 July. The landing site of the Apollo-11 has been changed. The flight control in Houston came to this decision because the original landing area is currently being plagued by a tropical storm. Now the point where the Apollo has to descend tonight has been moved 398 kilometers.
24 Juli 1969, Criticizing moon race with Russians. The battle for the moon.
STRANGELY ENOUGH, NASA – ordered by President Eisenhower to forget all about a moon landing, was able to produce fully detailed plans that not only showed that a moon landing was indeed possible, but also that such a landing was the only space project that would offer the opportunity to gain an advantage over the Russians. In these plans, the year 1967 and not 1969 is stated as the year for the landing.
