Apollo 11 Landing: 40 Years Later

Buzz Aldrin on the Moon

Buzz Aldrin on the Moon

40 years ago today Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon.

I was only three years old on that day, and I don’t remember it. My memories of the Apollo 11┬ámission are from the books that I have read, the movies and television shows that I have watched, and the people that I have met.

A total of just 12 men have walked on the Moon. It is my hope that within the next 40 years many more will do so.
