It happened 44 Years Ago Today

ManOnMoon

On July 20, 1969, 44 years ago today, man left the planet earth, flew over 238,000 miles in a spaceship, and landed on the moon. He got out of the space craft and walked around on the surface of the moon.  Amazing.

Here is a NASA photo of Astronaut Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin on the moon. In Aldrin’s faceplate you can see the reflection of fellow Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to step on the moon and the Lunar Module. Click on the image for a larger view.

Can’t wait until we go back.
