50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing

Post Date:07/03/2019 3:33 PM

On July 20, 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin became the first humans ever to land on the moon. About six hours after landing, Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon, famously said, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."  Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later; they spent about two hours together outside the spacecraft. The astronauts collected lunar material to bring back to Earth; these Moon Rocks are still being studied in over 100 research laboratories around the world.
