March 27, 2019

Space Public Outreach Team Member, Jason Zeng from Bozeman presented a program entitled Our Place in the Universe, to students in Zurich on March 19 and in Chinook on March 20.

It was the main event on July 20, 1969. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, and Michael Collins, NASA's Apollo 11 crew, had made the historic, 240,000 mile trip from Earth to the moon.

At 10:56 p.m. EDT, with millions of people gathered around their televisions to watch or their radios to listen, Armstrong and Aldrin stepped off the lunar landing module, the Eagle, and became the first humans to walk on the surface of the moon. After the two stepped onto the lunar surface, Armstrong proclaimed these famous words: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
