The Apollo 11 space mission culminated in a monumental event: on July 20, 1969, the first-ever crewed lunar landing took place. The vessel carried astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, who after setting foot on the moon’s surface uttered the famous line, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Read on to find out how New York City is celebrating the landing of the Eagle lunar module 50 years on.
