It’s Been 45 Years Since First Moon Landing


Agency Report

“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind,” astronaut Neil Armstrong said 45 years ago, as he descended from a short ladder and stepped onto the moon.

On July 20, 1969, Armstrong and Edwin Eugene “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. were the first men to land on the moon.


In an effort to outpace the Soviet Union in “The Space Race,” Time reports that President John F. Kennedy finally made good on his 1961 promise to get an American on the lunar surface with the success of the Apollo 11 mission. (Although President Richard Nixon was in office at the time of the landing.)
