Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing


Wednesday marks the anniversary of the moon landing. On July 20th, 1969, Apollo Eleven touched down on the lunar surface, at 4:18 p.m. Eastern time.

It only had 30 seconds worth of fuel remaining.

It had taken off on the morning of July 16th, carrying Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.

A little over six hours later — with more than half a billion people watching — Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon.
