NASA Marks Anniversary Of Apollo 11 Launch
MOON SHOT: Forty years ago, on July 16, 1969, Mission Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin lifted off in a Saturn V rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on NASA’s Apollo 11 mission to the moon. Launch took place at 9:32 a.m. local time and the astronauts reached Earth orbit 12 minutes later. Apollo 11 was the fifth human spaceflight in the Apollo program, the third human trip to the moon, and the first to land astronauts on its surface.
