The Moon Landing By; Coleman G Slide 2 Apollo 11 crew On 16 July 1969, half a million people gathered near Cape Canaveral, Florida. Their attention was focused on three astronauts, Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., and Michael Collins. Slide 3 Takeoff They were in in the couches of an Apollo spacecraft bolted atop a Saturn V launch vehicle, awaiting ignition of five clustered rocket engines to boost them toward the first lunar landing. Slide 4 Moon Landing On Sunday, Armstrong and Aldrin cut loose from the command module and headed toward the surface of the moon. Armstrong set the craft down at 4:17 P.M., reporting, Houston, The Eagle has landed. Six and one half hours later, after donning a protective suit and life- sustaining backpack. Slide 5 Moon Landing Armstrong climbed down and set foot on lunar soil, saying, Thats one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Half a billion people watched on television as the two astronauts moved about on the moons surface. Slide 6 Moon Walk They talked with President Richard M. Nixon, set up scientific equipment, and gave millions of listeners a description of their experiences. Slide 7 Moon Walk While on the Sea of Tranquility, Armstrong and Aldrin deployed a television camera, raised the American flag, collected about forty-seven pounds of samples Slide 8 Leaving The Moon After two hours of exploring, they returned to the lunar module, rested for eight hours, and then started the engine of the ascent stage to rejoin Collins, who was orbiting the moon in Columbia, late Monday afternoon. Slide 9 Coming Back Home Apollo 11 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on Thursday, 24 July, a week and a day (195 hours) after departing the Florida launch site. The astronauts, greeted by Nixon aboard the U.S.S. Hornet.
