July 20, 1969 "The Eagle Has Landed"

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Associates of Florida I Inc.

Wow, has it really been 46 years since the Apollo 11 mission?

July 20th, 1969, Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that took Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins (yes there were three astronauts) to the moon. This day marked the first steps by humans on the Moon.

At 4:18 p.m. the lunar module landed in the Sea of Tranquility. At 10:39 p.m. Neil Armstrong opened the hatch on the lunar module.  At 10:56 p.m. Neil Armstrong spoke his famous quote "that's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."  At 11:11 p.m. Buzz Aldrin joined Neil Armstrong.

Looking back on this, I've always felt bad for Michael Collins. Everyone remembers Armstrong and Aldrin, but everyone seems to forget to mention the person that remained in orbit while they landed on the moon.

Thank you for the reminded Kim.  I am one of those people who didn't remember Michael Collins.  It is a good lesson to us all that everyone involved in a project or on a team plays a vital role.

Interesting article and I agree that Michael Collins should have been remembered as well.  As a matter of fact, I don't ever remember hearing his name.  Great read and something out of the norm to break up the day.  Thanks for sharing!
