We Choose the Moon
On 20 July 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr. successfully landed on the surface of the moon. The next day, the two left the landing craft, Eagle, to become the first people to set foot on another astronomical body. While there, they planted an American flag, spoke with President Richard Nixon, and collected soil and rock samples while astronaut Michael Collins orbited above in the command ship, Columbia.
