Lunar Landing 1969

Thirty-seven years ago on July 20, 1969, billions of people around the globe stopped what they were doing and watched as a test pilot from Ohio walked on the moon. He was followed by his fellow travelers Buzz Aldrin. Michael Collins stayed behind in orbit to man the fort, watching from above.

After that we could never look at ourselves in the same way again. We had, for the first time ever in human evolution, stepped on a place where truly no person had stepped before.

This is what they saw.
