Their mission was to land on the Moon and take a closer look at Earth’s mysterious neighbor. Millions of people around the world watched and held their breath as the astronauts prepared to make history.

After a long journey, the astronauts finally reached the Moon. Neil Armstrong was the first to step out of the spacecraft. As he put his foot down on the dusty lunar surface, he said, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Those words became famous and are remembered even today!
