Americans made huge advances in space exploration in the 1960s. The first U.S. effort to put an astronaut in orbit was the Mercury project. The next steps into space were taken under the Gemini and Apollo programs. In 1969, Apollo 10 astronauts determined a lunar module could land on the Sea of Tranquility. After that, it was decided Apollo 11 would land Americans on the moon.
 
Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins left for the moon at 9:32 a.m. on July 16, 1969. It took Apollo 11 four days to reach its destination. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin descended to the moon inside the lunar module Eagle. Collins remained in the command module ColumbiaEagle landed on the moon at 4:17 p.m., and Armstrong stepped onto the moon’s surface about six hours later. An estimated 600 million people – a fifth of the planet’s population – witnessed the live transmission of Armstrong’s “giant leap.”
 
The astronauts gathered about 46 pounds of rocks and soil. They left an Apollo 11 patch, a pouch with messages from 73 nations, an olive branch, and a plaque, which is pictured on this cover. It reads: “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon July 1969, A.D. We came in peace for all mankind.” It was signed by the three astronauts and President Richard Nixon.
