PODCAST REPEAT: Throwback to this day (July 20, 2019), when we did our first ever podcast episode on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and the very first Moon Landing that took place on July 20, 1969.

At 20:17 GMT on July 20, 1969, the Eagle lunar module landed on the Moon. American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon at 2:56 GMT on July 21, 1969. He stepped out of the Apollo 11 lunar module and onto the Moon’s surface, in an area called the ‘Sea of Tranquility.’ Shortly after him, at 03:15 GMT, Armstrong was joined by the lunar module pilot, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. Both astronauts collected data and soil samples before planting the US flag at 03:41 GMT. Meanwhile, Michael Collins successfully orbited the Moon in the mothership Columbia.

Neil and Buzz also unveiled a plaque bearing President Nixon’s signature and an inscription reading

“Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind.”
