July 20, 1969: Moon Landing, “Hello Houston”


“Hello Houston” by Michael Bedard
(to obtain a copy click here)

July 20, 1969: America’s first landing of a lunar modul landed on the moon. Apollo 11, with commander Neil Armstrong, lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, and command module pilot Michael Collins,  left Earth on July 16, 1969.

Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon in the modul. Collins circled above.

The next day, July 21, Armstrong was the first human to walk on the moon. Buzz Aldrin followed shortly becoming number two on the moon.

We’ve been researching this but have not found the answer: is that Armstrong or Aldrin in “Hello Houston” shown above?
