  Contact Light - a personal retrospective of Project Apollo
Project Mercury concluded in 1963 after six successful Earth-orbital and sub-orbital flights, and Project Gemini continued paving the way to the Moon in March of 1965.
The Apollo project was dealt a major setback in early 1967 with the tragic Apollo 1 fire and death of its crewmen during training, and it wasn't until October of 1968 (23 months after the final Gemini flight) that manned missions resumed with the launch of earth orbital mission Apollo 7.
Apollo 17 set records for total duration of lunar EVA's (22 hours), distance driven with the LRV (36 km.) and lunar samples collected (254 lbs.), and brought the manned lunar landing missions to conclusion in grand fashion with a spectacular televised lunar liftoff.

  Apollo Project
The success of the Apollo Project rested on the development of the Saturn series of launch vehicles, and, in particular the Saturn V moon rocket.
President Eisenhower initially opposed this development beyond the Mercury Project, but Apollo was given the green light by his successor on May 21, 1961, when President Kennedy declared America’s goal of placing humans on the Moon by the end of the decade.
Apollo 7 and 9 were Earth-orbiting missions to test the CM and LM.

Project Apollo was a series of human spaceflight missions undertaken by the United States of America using the Apollo spacecraft, conducted during the years 1961-1972.
During Project Apollo, six highly complex manned craft landed on the Moon, took off and returned to Earth using a relatively low level of technology.
Their project worked more towards first sending an unmanned lander to the Moons surface to collect samples, take pictures and measure radiation levels.

 Adobe Reveals More Details on Apollo
The idea behind Apollo, Hay said, is to enable apps currently made from Flash and PDF to "move beyond the browser" by assigning Flash-based apps a desktop icon that can be launched like traditional apps and utilities.
Apollo will also bridge the print and software world, traditionally Adobe's bailiwick, with the exuberance of the third-party developer market, which was Macromedia's bread-and-butter.
Hay added that Adobe plans to get a free Apollo public alpha download into developers' hands as quickly as possible on the Adobe Labs site so they can experiment with creating their own apps, but it won't be until much later this year.

 APOLLO
APOLLO measures the round-trip travel time of laser pulses bounced off the lunar retroreflectors to a precision of a few picoseconds, corresponding to about one millimeter of precision in range to the moon.
A total of four lunar retroreflectors are functional: three Apollo reflectors from Apollo 11, 14, and 15 (three times bigger than 11 and 14), and one French-built, Soviet landed (unmanned) unit from the Luna 21 mission.
APOLLO has benefited from the professional expertise of: Larry Carey, Peter Doherty, Erik Swanson, Sterling Fisher, Tim van Wechel, Allan Myers, Mark Klaene, Russell Owen, and Jeff Morgan.

 ACNielsen Trends&Insights - Media on the Move: How to Measure In- and Out-of-Home Media Consumption
Another way to think about Project Apollo is that it would aggregate a “day in the life” of thousands of consumers.
Here's an example of what Project Apollo might capture and aggregate in “a day in the life” of a health conscious, Visa- and MasterCard-toting married woman, age 41, with a 13-year-old daughter who lives a hectic life, eats out four to six times a week and places a premium on convenience.
With Apollo, the connection from exposure to action will be clear, direct and measurable, informed by a robust collection of rich consumer profiles contributed by panel members.
