Apollo 11 - United
States space vehicle that landed on the Moon at
10:56 P.M. on July 20, 1969.
When astronaut Neil A. Armstrong set foot on the
lunar surface he said "That's one small step for
man, one giant leap for mankind."
Shortly before this famous quote Americans heard
at approximately 6:00 P.M. EST Astronaut
Armstrong report "Houston, Tranquility base
here. The Eagle has landed." [referring to the
Eagle Lunar Module].
On the second mission to the Moon [Apollo 12] on
October 27, 1969, Commander Charles "Pete"
Conrad stepped off the Lunar Module and stated
"Whoopee! Man, that may have been a small one
for Neil, but that's a long one for me!"
