1969.06.20 - List of records for Apollo 11


Sigurd A. Sjoberg, MSC Deputy Director of Flight Operations, informed MSC management of a list of records that could be set in the Apollo 11 flight.

Plans were made to file claims with the Fdration Aronautique Internationale for:

Class records for lunar missions

- Duration of stay on the surface of the moon.

- Duration of stay inside the spacecraft on the surface of the moon.

- Duration of stay outside the spacecraft on the surface of the moon.

- Greatest mass landed on the moon.

- Greatest mass lifted to lunar orbit from the surface of the moon.

- Duration of stay in lunar orbit (The Apollo 10 record would be broken if the optional sleep period after rendezvous and before transearth injection were included.)

Absolute world record

- EVA record-duration of stay outside spacecraft.
