The first manned Moon landing in 1969

April 23, 2008


Video: NASA via YouTube

The United States achieved the first manned landing on the surface of the Earth’s Moon on the 20th July 1969. Neil Armstrong was the first human to step onto the moon, with those now famous words “One small step for man, a giant leap for mankind.”.

The Apollo 11 mission was manned by Neil Armstrong, Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin and Michael Collins, however only Armstrong and Aldrin proceeded to the moon, Collins remaining in orbit while the lunar module was landed. I would feel just a little ripped off if I was Michael, imagine going all the way to the Moon and having to stay in the command module and wait in orbit while the other 2 get to travel down to the moon.

The thing that I find amazing about the whole Moon landing thing is that I have more processing power and memory in my Sony Clie handheld PDA than the computers on the whole of the Apollo 11 spacecraft. It is just incredible what can be done with the will and the knowhow.
