Final Jeopardy! Round responses

SPACE EXPLORATION
(Alex: Boy, this one was a toughie. I could tell by the furrowed brows I was looking at throughout the 30 seconds. Larry, we're going to begin with you, you were in third place. What did you put down as your response, were you able to come up with anything? What is--well, you had part of it. You couldn't think--you were on the right track. We were dealing with SPACE EXPLORATION, moon landings: the command vehicle, and the lunar lander itself. You came up with half of the equation, so we have to rule against you.)
...
(Alex: The command vehicle was called [*], the lunar lander was [*]. "[*] has landed." Unfortunately, on our program today, it did not land.)
