Apollo 11 | The Eagle Has Landed

leave a comment »

Forty years ago today President Kennedy’s “We choose to go to the Moon” speech became a reality.  Apollo 11 made up of two Americans that landed on the Moon on July, 10, 1969 at 4:17 pm EDT in the lunar module “Eagle”, with another American orbiting the Moon, awaiting their return to the “Colombia” command module, and hundreds of thousands of other Americans behind the scenes.  Having always been a fascinated with NASA and the American Space Program, these images always intrigue me and bring out the wonder of what the human race is capable of.
