On May 24, 1961, President John F. Kennedy challenged American scientists to land a man on the Moon.  While Kennedy did not live to see his vision realized, it was accomplished in just eight years. Fittingly, Apollo 11 was launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on July 16, 1969.  Among the items astronaut Neil Armstrong carried with him was a piece of wood from the Wright brothers' 1903 plane, to show how far aviation had advanced. On July 20, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the lunar surface while Michael Collins orbited the Moon.  Back on Earth, a record 600 million people watched as Armstrong took the first steps on the Moon.  In addition to collecting samples, setting up equipment, and conducting experiments, the astronauts left behind a plaque that reads, "Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon.  July 1969, A.D.  We came in peace for all mankind."  After returning to Earth, they were honored with parades, a world tour, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  The mission has also been honored on several US stamps, including a set for the 50th anniversary in 2019. The Moon landing was a pivotal event of the century.  It was a major technological feat and ushered in a new era in space cooperation in which the US collaborated with Space Race rivals, the Soviet Union.
