Ever wondered what the early astronauts said during those tense moments as they traveled into the unknown reaches of outer space?
Now you can listen in thanks to the magic of Spacelog.org, a new website recently created by British programmer Andrew Godwin. You can view the actual NASA transcripts online of famous missions like Apollo 13 and John Glenn’s mission Mercury-Atlas 6 aboard Friendship 7 as he became the first American to reach orbit around the Earth.
Besides reading the transcripts, you can also browse actual photographs and other historical documents from these missions that show some of the real problems the astronauts encountered. Revel in the key moments like Jim Lovell’s now famous (and often misquoted) words, “Houston, we’ve had a problem.”
More exciting transcripts are expected to be added to this already fascinating website, so you’ll want to check it out on a regular basis to see more in this amazing window into our space adventures.
