50 years ago, a single adventure captured the minds of the whole World when on 16th July 1969, Apollo 11 took off from Cape Canaveral carrying 3 brave souls destined to make history for mankind. The spacecraft carried Commander Neil A. Armstrong, Command Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin.
On July 20th the Lunar landing craft called Eagle 1 safely touched down. Several hours Neil Armstrong and 'Buzz' Aldrin became the first humans to stand on the moon.
