Apollo 11 was the first space mission that landed humans on the moon, 47 years ago today. Neil Armstrong took his famous first steps on the moon hours later (the 21st), and uttered those iconic words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Decades later, we still get excited thinking of this monumental advancement.
