Apollo 11 launched Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on a path to the moon, where two of the men walked several days later.

The first step on the moon, taken by Neil Armstrong on July 21, 1969, ended the Space Race with the U.S.S.R., and began the environmental movement as people saw color photos of the Earth for the first time.
