“That’s One Small Step For Man…”

“… one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong, July 20, 1969 from Tranquility Base on the moon.

Forty years ago today, long before manned space flight came to be defined as a quick jaunt around the Earth, man reached higher and further. Apollo 11 and the men who blasted off atop its Saturn V rocket – Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins – took mankind to the moon. It was a unifying moment for mankind as a billion people watched men from the planet Earth step onto the surface of the moon.

A plaque marks the spot at Tranquility Base where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked the lunar surface. It reads: “Here Men From The Planet Earth First Set Foot Upon the Moon, July 1969 A.D. We Came in Peace For All Mankind.”
