Background information

On July 20, 1969, the American astronaut Neil Armstrong was the first human to set foot on the moon. The journey of Apollo 11, the landing, and the first steps on the moon are world news. Four days earlier, the astronauts on the Apollo 11 mission had left earth to do something no human had ever done before: walk on the moon. After four days, the lunar lander, called the Eagle, reached the lunar surface (The Eagle has landed). Hours later, on July 21, Neil Armstrong was the first human ever to set foot on the moon. He then famously said, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
