The world’s first space mission Apollo 11 has completed fifty years. On July 20, 1969, American astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first person in the world to step on the moon. This mission is considered to be the longest leap in human history. Buzz Aldrin was the second person in the world to walk on the moon after Neil. On Thursday, this special moment was recreated in the Seattle Flight Museum.

After stepping on the moon, Neil used to say some special words. He said that this is a small step of human being and a long jump of humanity. Apollo had 11 missions in total, in which 33 astronauts went. Of which 27 reached the moon. Of these, 24 were made to the moon. But only 12 were those who stepped on the surface of the moon

Four million people were connected with this special and first space mission and 53 million people watched it live. NASA has estimated that four lakh people were involved in the mission, in addition to astronauts, mission controllers, caterers, engineers, contractors, scientists, nurses, doctors and mathematicians were involved. That number of people watching live on the mission was about 15 percent of the population at that time.
