NASA’s best ever achievement was to defeat the Soviet Union in reaching the moon first. The date 20 of the month of July of the year 1969 was reported in history when NASA’s Apollo 11 spacecraft landed on the Moon. Apollo 11 became the first ever rover to land on the Moon and the astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldir, and Michael Collins became the first ever humans to reach the Moon. Neil Armstrong was the first man to his foot on the lunar and the second man was Buzz Aldir.

This historic event is studied all over the world today. Apollo 11 landed on the moon on July 21. Armstrong set his foot on the surface of the moon after six hours of the landing of the spacecraft and around 650 million people all around the world witnessed Armstrong descended to the dusty surface of the Moon. Armstrong was happy and proud at that moment as he conveyed, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” After setting his foot on the surface of the Moon, Armstrong started reporting at the NASA’s Mission Control in Houston, Texas, as he explained the description of the surface of the lunar. The conversations and the reports from back then are still under NASA’s inventory.

NASA saved every transcript and audio conversations between Armstrong and his crew members so that it can help them study more about the Moon. NASA has stored all the data in a digitalized way so that they do not experience any sort of difficulty in finding and studying the mission report. Armstrong conveyed that Moon’s surface is dusty and they did not experience any sort of difficulty in walking on the Moon. Armstrong also said that he noticed his footprint behind on the surface. Moon has only one-sixth gravity of Earth, the astronaut said movements were easier than in Earthly simulations.
