50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing
On 20th / 21st July 1969, spaceflight Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the moon's surface to explore and collect material to bring back to earth. Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon were broadcast live on television worldwide - a truly remarkable achievement for the United States. All over the world people heard Neil Armstrong's words: "one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind."
