On this day in 1969, the spaceflight Apollo 11 landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the moon. People watched worldwide as Armstrong took that momentous first step onto the moon, declaring, “This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
One does not simply land on the moon wearing a t-shirt and jeans. See how these Historic Space Suits evolved to allow a successful landing on the moon!
Frank Sinatra was the first music ever
heard on the Moon. Just before he
stepped out of the spacecraft and onto
the lunar surface, Buzz Aldrin reached
back and played “Fly Me to the Moon”
on a cassette tape.
