    WHEN IS APOLLO 50TH ANNIVERSARY


    July 20, 1969, was when Apollo 11 blasted off from the USA, sending astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on a journey to the moon and back. It took around three days to get to the moon, and then Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21 hours and 26 minutes on the lunar surface, becoming the first humans to set foot on it. Exactly 50 years ago, the world heard these famous words as Neil Armstrong lowered onto the surface of the Moon: “That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.”
     
    The mission, dubbed Apollo 11, was the climax of the Apollo program, which pushed human spaceflight forward faster than ever before. Fifty years after the mission, people across the world are once again celebrating the moon landing, the odds that were stacked against it and how it continues to influence spaceflight.
