At 10:56 p.m. EDT, American astronaut Neil Armstrong, 240,000 miles from Earth, speaks these words to more than a billion people listening at home: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Stepping off the lunar landing module Eagle, Armstrong became the first human to walk on the surface of the moon.
Even though I was born far too late to see any of the Apollo missions, there are few things that fill me with pride in the human spirit than the images of Armstrong and Aldrin landing and walking on the moon.
What are your feelings of the moon landings? What do you think the future planned missions to the moon might mean to the future of mankind?
