A Giant Step for Mankind

It is the anniversary of the first Lunar landing. On this day in 1969, the Lunar lander called Eagle landed on the Moon. Its two man crew of Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin were the first humans who ever sat their feet on another celestial body than Earth. They were followed by a few other men until December 1972. We are still waiting for the next manned Lunar landing.

The first Lunar landing is worth celebrating. It was a great feat and every human may be proud of it. It truly was a great step for mankind, as Neil Armstrong put it.
