In 1961, President John F. Kennedy issued the momentous proposition that the United States should successfully land on the moon before the decades end. America did not disappoint, and on July 16th, the Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket launched from Merritt Island, Florida. The crew consisted of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. On July 20th, they landed the Apollo Eagle module on the lunar surface. Just over six hours later, Armstrong made history as the first person to ever set foot on the moon.
