(NASA HISTORY) – At 3:58pm (EST), 50 years ago on November 24, 1969, Apollo 12 completed its 10-day “Pinpoint Mission” with one more precise action, splashing down in the Pacific Ocean about 3 miles from its target area and the U.S.S. Hornet recovery ship.
On top of that, the mission’s total flight time of 244 hours, 36 minutes, and 25 seconds was just 62 seconds longer than originally planned.
Right on schedule.
