That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. Apollo 11 Astronaut Neil Armstrong
Fifty years ago Neil Armstrong became the first human to step foot on the moon as Apollo 11 landed safely on its surface. Buzz Aldrin joined Armstrong on the moon while Michael Collins manned the command module that would return them to Earth. This remains the greatest technological event in human history. This event fulfilled the promise of President John F. Kennedy who said earlier in the decade this should happen. Today we remember this event that changed us all.
The important achievement of Apollo was demonstrating that humanity is not forever chained to this planet and our visions go rather further than that and our opportunities are unlimited. – Neil Armstrong, Astronaut of Apollo 11
