Apollo 11 was the spaceflight which landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface 6 hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC. A third member of the mission, Michael Collins, remained alone in lunar orbit until they returned from the surface about 15 hours later. All three astronauts returned to Earth safely after travelling in space for 8 days. and today on August 25,2012 we lost him so in his honor here are a couple of videos. This one was done back in 2009 for the 40th anniversary of his walk on the moon.
i don't know what is sadder , the fact that he has died or that his death was merely a short story on the news ( at least here ) it seems more people talk about prince harry's naked arse than one of mankinds true heroes !
the space race was probably the only good thing the cold war has ever created ( if you don't count rocky 4 that is )
