Apollo 11 Moon Landing: 40th Anniversary Photographic Retrospective - 20:17:40 UTC, 20 July 1969. Contrary to popular belief, few people remember the first words actually spoken from the Moon. The first words were procedural, hardly memorable: "Contact light; Okay, engine stop; ACA out of detent," etc. Then, in words intended for public consumption, spoken to a worldwide audience so enthralled with the mission that tens of millions were listening and watching, live, in fuzzy black and white by Neil Armstrong: "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." This photo scrapbook shows images some famous, others unknown that chronicle the epic journey of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins aboard Apollo 11, 40 years ago.
