ONE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THE APOLLO 11 ASTRONAUTS LEFT BEHIND IS STILL WORKING TO THIS DAY THIS EXPERIMENT FROM 19-69 LEADING TO THE TECHNOLOGY WHICH NOW ENABLES YOUR SMART PHONE TO GIVE YOU DRIVING DIRECTIONS

FOX'S JONATHAN SERRIE HAS THE STORY 3 FIFTY YEARS AFTER THE FIRST MEN LANDED ON THE MOON, THE EXPERIMENT BUZZ ALDRIN IS HOLDING IN HIS RIGHT HAND STILL WORKS TO THIS DAYJAEGER says "What I'm holding right here is a retroreflector similar to the ones that are on the moon" THE TECHNOLOGY COMPANY — HERAEUS — MANUFACTURED THE EXPERIMENT'S KEY INGREDIENT SPECIALIZED PRISMS CALLED "CORNER CUBES

" FALLER says "I've always said it's like the Mona Lisa of optics because in the Mona Lisa, no matter where you stand in the Louvre Museum in Paris, you see yourself It looks like she's looking at you" SIMILARLY, IF YOU AIM A POWERFUL LASER AT THE APOLLO 11 LANDING SITE, THIS DEVICE WILL REFLECT THE BEAM RIGHT BACK TO YOU, EVEN IF YOU STRIKE IT AT AN ANGLE THAT'S CRUCIAL BECAUSE THE MOON IS A CONSTANTLY MOVING TARGET WITH RUGGED TERRAIN TO MINIMIZE RISK TO THE ASTRONAUTS, NASA WOULD ONLY APPROVE EXPERIMENTS WITH A QUICK SET UP

THAT BECAME A MAJOR SELLING POINT FOR SCIENTISTS BEHIND THE LUNAR REFLECTORFALLER says "And so they said, 'Well And so we said, 'Wait! Wait! Ours is just like a briefcase You just carry it out, set it down, kick a little sand under this corner and that corner'" WITH THE REFLECTOR IN PLACE, RESEARCHERS COULD MEASURE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE EARTH AND MOON WITH AN ACCURACY OF LESS THAN ONE INCH

JAEGER says "With the light, you have time zero where it fires from the laser from the Earth It goes up, hits the retroreflector, comes back If we take that time, divide it by two, multiply it by the speed of light, you've got the distance from the Earth to the Moon" THE ABILITY TO DETERMINE THE EXACT LOCATION OF DISTANT OBJECTS LED TO ADDITIONAL BREAKTHROUGHS, INCLUDING G-P-S NAVIGATION SO THE NEXT TIME YOUR SMART PHONE GETS YOU WHERE YOU NEED TO GO, THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND YOUR JOURNEY ACTUALLY BEGAN FIFTY YEARS AGO ON THE SURFACE OF THE MOON
