The Apollo 11 Moon Landing was televised worldwide and watched by 500-600 million, becoming a major cultural touchstone of the 1960s. Crowds from across the globe were mesmerized by the event, as shown in this clips from the film “Moonwalk One,” recently digitized by our colleagues in the National Archives’ Media Preservation Lab.

Happy 45th anniversary of the moon landing, earthlings! The National Air & Space Museum is live-tweeting it (or whatever you call it when it’s something that already happened but they’re tweeting in real-time)! I can’t believe I don’t know where my astronaut ice cream is! Are you a little giddy about it? I AM!

- July 20th, 1969 - Apollo 11

It was 45 years ago today that man first set foot upon the moon.  We salute the incredible spirit and determination of the thousands upon thousands of men and women that contributed to man’s greatest achievement in exploration.

THESE APOLLO 11 MISSION PHOTOS WILL TRANSPORT YOU BACK TO A REMARKABLE DAY IN HISTORY

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong made history when he landed on the moon with Buzz Aldrin and took that first “small step for mankind” on the lunar surface. Forty-five years later, we remember that day during the Apollo 11 mission as one that changed the world forever.

While you’ve probably seen the iconic picture of Buzz Aldrin next to the U.S. flag, you probably haven’t seen these behind the scenes photos of the Apollo 11 mission. So check out photos of their launch day breakfast and suiting up to leave the earth here.

Forty-five years ago today, two human beings first set foot on the moon. On July 20, 1969, the lunar module of Apollo 11 touched down in the Sea of Tranquility, and forever changed how we view our place in the universe. When I think about the fact that four and a half decades ago, at the very moment I am writing this, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were walking on the freakin’ moon, I am humbled and inspired.

I’ve combined some of my favorite photos from Apollo 11 with some of the actual words spoken by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins.

Apollo 11 Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin make the first moonwalk, on July 20, 1969.

In these clips they can been seen planting the U.S. Flag on the lunar surface and experimenting with various types of movement in the Moon’s lower gravity, including loping strides and kangaroo hops.

On July 20, 1969, with 600 million people watching on TV, an American crew landed on the Moon—the first people ever to walk on another world. The Apollo 11 mission had three crew members: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, who piloted the craft that would return them to Earth, while the others became the first two men ever to walk its surface.
