July 20, 1969: Man walks on the moon.
At 10:56 EDT, Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong spoke the immortal words “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, and then stepped out of the lunar landing module Eagle and became the first human to walk on the moon.
A television camera attached to the space craft captured the moment and was witnessed by hundreds of millions of people on Earth. Fellow crew member Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin also filmed with another camera, shooting many images of the lunar landscape. The images captured were shared with the people of Earth in 1.3 seconds — the time it takes for light to travel to Earth.
