 Add the Excitement of the Moon Landing

When U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong set his left foot down upon the surface of the Moon at 10:56 p.m. EDT on July 20, 1969, he made what he famously described as, “…one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” 

The landing module landed in a place called “West Crater,” which was scattered with boulders.  After the landing, Aldrin requested everyone “…to pause for a moment and contemplate the events of the past few hours and to give thanks in his or her own way.”

Aldrin, who was an elder in his church, then proceeded to receive Communion from a kit prepared for him by his pastor.  This was blacked out of the broadcast due to an ongoing lawsuit filed against NASA concerning the crew of the Apollo 8 mission reading from the “Book of Genesis.”

Armstrong and Aldrin had several tasks to perform while on the Moon’s surface.  One of them included planting the American flag.  They first had to get used to walking around on the Moon.  They collected rock and dust samples and set out equipment to transmit readings.  They then returned to the landing module and slept.
