Crazy, isn't? Two score and seven years ago, three guys took 7.5 million pounds of thrust, packed it into a 365-foot rocket, and set off on a journey that one person dared to put out there, but nobody thought would ever occur... Then it did. July 16th, 2016 was 47 years to the day that Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins boarded Apollo 11, and set off. 4 days later, they landed on the moon. I'll let NASA take it from here. Enjoy. https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/apollo/apollo11.html Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong working at an equipment storage area on the lunar module. This is one of the few photos that show Armstrong during the moonwalk. Smoke and flames signal the opening of a historic journey as the Saturn V clears the launch pad. Buzz Aldrin climbs down the Eagle's ladder to the surface. Crater 308 stands out in sharp relief in this photo from lunar orbit. Instead of talking about the Dwarf Planets, My kids will be having this for their story time tonight. BL.
