Moon landing – the biggest rave the world ever had
On July, 20 1969 Neil Armstrong stepped with his left foot first on the moon while uttering the most famous lines in the English language: “One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.”
Some 600 million people watched the live event on television. It was the biggest rave the world ever had, for a precious moment uniting all in awe. Thanks to the Internet, the video of this tremendous occasion is being watched more than ever.
Armstrong admitted that he had meant to say, “One small step for a man” – including the “a”. As it stands, this feat was not only a major accomplishment for one man but for all mankind.
Apollo 11 crew: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin (who followed Armstrong onto the moon) and Michael Collins (orbiting the moon in the command module). To date, only 24 people have flown to the moon, and only 12 people have walked on the moon.
