Yesterday was the anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. The next day, July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing . Armstrong spent about two and a half hours outside the spacecraft. Also on the mission was Buzz Aldrin who also walked on the moon but for slightly less time. Together they collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material for return to Earth. The third member of the mission, Michael Collins, piloted the command spacecraft alone in lunar orbit until Armstrong and Aldrin returned to it just under a day later for the trip back to Earth.
