Compiled from Saturn V launch vehicle flight evaluation reports, Apollo mission preliminary science reports, and mission reports. Apollo 16 data based on seismic data due to loss of S-IVB tracking prior to impact; impact time is +/- 4 seconds; impact site is +/-0.7 latitude and +/- 0.3 longitude. Impact times for all vehicles are when impact signal was received on Earth.
