50 years since man landed on the moon

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. Commander Neil Armstrong, Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, and Command Module Pilot Michael Collins formed the American crew that landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969.

Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours 39 minutes later on July 21; Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft. Michael Collins was the only one of the three not to walk on the moon.

Have you ever wondered why Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon, not “Buzz” Aldrin. Find out here.

There are also heaps of archive movies on the NASA page here.

“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
