Recent Updates and Additions
These are updates that have been made to the Apollo 11 Flight Journal in recent months.
Thanks to George Vila for pointing out two errors. In the Launch chapter, the audio file for the PAO announcement at T minus 1 hour, 11 minutes, 55 seconds was wrong. The correct audio will now be available at that link. The chapter, Day 2: Laser Experiment, had an incorrect chapter heading. It said 'part 4' when it ought to have been 'part 3'.
