… one giant leap for mankind.” -Neil Armstrong, July 20, 1969.
Happy Anniversary, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins!
While Neil and Buzz took a stroll on the lunar surface, Astronaut Mike Collins was orbiting in the Apollo 11 Command Module making sure that the other two would be able to make it home safely.
BTW, for all the conspiracy theorists who point to a “waving” flag on an airless moon as proof of a fake landing, you should know that the American flag on the moon had wire mesh in its fabric. This is precisely because in an airless environment, the flag would simply hang limp and show up in photos as nothing more than a swatch of fabric.
How Does The Flag Wave On the Moon?
