  • We're going back to the moon, and we're going to need to train Astronauts how to land. This video is the result of trying to understand that control problem better. in the next video of this series, I'll show you footage from an actual NASA Lunar Lander software test I participated in many years ago. Also, I'd like to say express grateful I am to everyone who supports Smarter Every Day on Patreon at .

    • Great video!! Thanks! I am a physicist and not a spacecraft engineer, so maybe my question sounds strange to the engineering guys. What I am still curious is why the xy movement needs to be a component of total trust controlled by tilt of the entire lander. Why not tilting just the engine and keeping the lander stable? Then ~6x the tilt on the moon compared to earth. OR use multiple engines (front, back, left, right) to perform xy movement, without needing to tilt the lander or components after all. Curious about your comments! Cheers

    • mr.Destin, i have a question. lunar module weigh is about 15 tons. the lightest rocket i found is delta-2 with weight is about 150tons. if moon gravity is 1/6 of earth, then rocket may be 25 tons. but module must spend fuel to landing and to take of. so module weight must be is about 50tons. but real lunar module weight 15tons. how could it be?

  • I think the early "control system engineers" are better than now, with limited literary and material resources, they have to solve physics, chemical problems, first formulate systems in calculus, then translate in machine language code, write them in the brain of mechanical-electronic systems that very complex they build, they must master the knowledge all at once

    • @Niko942 my bad I thought you were saying the landings were fake. I however do not suffer any such ailments as being addicted to the dreaded NBC Narrative or cognitive dissonance. I’m 53, I’ve seen plenty, as you do if you grow up on the ‘wrong side of tracks’.

      nicsandee123nicsandee1239 päivää sitten
    • @nicsandee123 If you think about it you'll see that cognitive dissonance can't affect just anyone, it can only affect those whose perceptions are largely false. If you're able to correctly understand what happens in the world, then there simply won't be a disagreement between facts and what you already know. However I have no idea why you're talking about 'hoaxers'. No one in this thread has mentioned any kind of hoaxes, except you.

      Niko942Niko9429 päivää sitten
    • @Niko942 you know that cognitive dissonance works both ways right? It has no bias, so it could be you that suffers from that most heinous of ailments? Every wonder why hoaxers keep harping on about shadows yet you can prove all that nonsense is wrong in your own back yard? Or better still find a piece of waste ground that catches the afternoon sun, bring a shovel, some rocks and a camera. It’s easy to do. So if one of the key elements of the hoax is the photographs and the shadows but yet it is utter nonsense, why should anyone listen to or place any credence on the rest of it? Food for thought perhaps?

    • @Atlas You see, you have no idea why you support what you support. You have no logical backing, no historical evidence, no moral justification. You just repeat whatever position the media tells you to and anyone who disagrees you turn to insults and empty posturing. I never said "taxation is theft" those are your words, not mine. By reducing to a meme, you tell yourself that you don't need to look at facts or evidence or even morality.

    RichJMoneyRichJMoneyUukausi sitten
    • @Atlas yes but the counter thruster offsets an amount of WEIGHT, which you can also do by... reducing the weight. Acceleration due to gravity is constant but how it flies is based on the overall MASS vs the force of the thrusters.

  • I disagree with Mr. Ottinger that we won't go without training on an LLTV. China recently sent an unmanned flight to the moon and it landed and took off without a human pilot. The computers we have nowadays are good enough to input the Gs, and land without any experience whatsoever by themselves. I would be completely shocked if we even bothered putting a man on another LLTV ever again. I go think though that it could be useful for testing the autonomous landing of the crafts we build in the future, for both the moon and for Mars, thought I can understand why they didn't do it for the sky crane concept that placed perseverance on Mars. It still landed safely without that didn't it? Within 5 meters of it's intended landing spot.

I always had the belief from information I gathered through various articles and docs that the LLTV was useless and couldn't adequately train them for lunar landing. Wow, what an eye opening video.

IMHO (i'm a computer/software engineer) engineers from decades past that's specialized in a certain field needed to be well versed in the complementary fields as well, IE: Software/Computer with electrical, mechanical, materials engineering. I find that today the engineering practices are too hyper focused & more study into the complementary fields would not only move our technology forward faster & with increased quality, but also at a better cost for society as a whole...... The more I study & tinker in the electrical & materials engineering side of things, it's made me a better engineer 10x **** rant over ****

  • You are one smart dude, there is no doubt, and I love your videos. You posses a very down to earth way of explaining topics that is very appealing. But, I want to offer some friendly advice on the use of the phrase "for free". You cannot give or get something "for free". Inserting the word "for" implies that you have something called "free" that you can give or get in exchange for something. So, first you have to give or get something called "free" before the transaction can take place. Can't be done. The proper way to phrase it would be to simply say "I'm giving you something "free". It's proper and it sounds correct, because it is. Growing up in a family full of teachers has made it impossible for me to let this egregious misuse of the phrase impossible to ignore. However, nearly everyone misuses it, so don't feel too bad. :-} Next up will be my rant on the overuse of the word "basically", which basically has no basic meaning and is nothing more than a basic filler word. There, I feel much better now... Hey, maybe I should start a channel of my own.

I imagine engineers will pre-program all of the error correction techniques in a computer for the re-return, but the Apollo crew never had that. They had to do everything with mechanics and training. I think it will be much less of a technical challenge on each individual person, but still a staggering engineering feat overall.

Before they affixed the housing of the batteries, my Grandfather and his crew had a bronze plaque made with their names inscibed on it. They attached it to the top of the housing that covered the batteries!!!! This could have caused a mass firing event if they were caught!!! So now my Grandfather's name is on the moon! This I am very proud of! Just thought you might like to hear the story.
