Neil Armstrong stepped out from the Eagle, to be the first Man to walk on the Moon . Buzz Aldrin followed and joined him shortly after.
On 16th July, 1969 the USA got ready to launch the Saturn V rocket on its journey to the Moon, from Cape Kennedy, Florida.
..... Armstrong and Aldrin prepared to land by climbing into the lunar module, The Eagle, and descending down onto the Moon's surface.
At 09:32 the Saturn V rocket launched from the tower. On board were Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin.
WE DID IT!
Whilst Collins remained in the Command Module and orbited the Moon.....
Let's take some photographs and collect space rocks and soil to study back on Earth.
That's one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind.
It then took the Apollo Crew 3 days to finally reach the Moon.
After only 12 minutes, the astronauts were orbiting the Earth.
After 21 hours on the Moon, Armstrong and Aldrin finally returned to the Command Module to reunite with a relieved Michael Collins and to make the journey back to Earth.
We've left The Eagle orbiting the Moon now!
And you too, Michael!We tried to put the American flag in the ground. Not sure if it will stay standing though!
It's so good to see you guys!Columbia and I have been around the Moon 30 times whilst we've been waiting!
Or our footprints!
The Moon landing was watched by nearly 600 million people around the world.
The Apollo 11 Crew returned to Earth and landed in the Pacific Ocean on 24th July , 1969. They were placed in quarantine for 21 days .
Across the USA, Moon parties were held to celebrate this monumental achievement.
Hip, Hip, Hurray! for the Astronauts!
