The now famous picture of Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon taken by Neil Armstrong in 1969, when the Apollo 11 mission saw the first Moon landing. The Apollo 11 moon landing evened the score in the Space Race, and with equal impact worldwide of Sputnik and Gagarin. Americans stayed up late the night of July 20, 1969, and watched as Neil Armstrong came down the ladder of the Lunar Module and stepped on lunar soil with the words, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for Mankind." While shipmate Michael Collins orbited above in the Command Module, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin conducted their experiments on the moon surface.
