Armstrong & Aldrin
Apollo 11 was the spacecraft that landed the first two humans on the moon. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969.
From the time of its July 16 launch until its July 24 splashdown, almost every major aspect of the mission was witnessed on television by a worldwide audience.
The original goal of the Apollo program was to send a crew into the moon’s orbit, but President John F. Kennedy wanted more. The goal was expanded.

Since the first moon mission, visitors have left 500,000 pounds of material on the moon’s surface.
Armstrong did not recite his famous quote correctly because of his excitement. Amstrong had planned to say, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind,” but he forgot the “a.”
