NASA's journey into the universe

Image 5 of 10


NASA's Apollo program, which ran from 1961-75, was primarily concerned with landing astronauts on the moon, following President Kennedy's announcement in 1961 that NASA would land a man on the moon by the end of the decade. The Apollo program's crowning achievement, the first successful moonwalk, came on July 20, 1969, by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. In this photograph Buzz Aldrin is seen on the left and the lunar landing module in the background on the right.
