American Lunar module Apollo 11 was the first manned spaceflight to land on the moon, on July 20, 1969. The two man crew, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, landed in the south-west region of Sea of Tranquility.
July 21, 1969, marked the historic event of first man on the moon. The astronauts made their 2 hour 31 minute and 40 second excursion onto the surface of the moon, with Neil Armstrong as the first man on the moon. After taking his first step, Armstrong uttered now famous phrase, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
The astronauts spent 21 hours 36 minutes and 21 seconds on the lunar surface before rejoining command module Columbia, which Michael Collins piloted while Armstrong and Aldrin were on the moon’s surface.
