About this creation
“Houston, Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed.”
— Neil Armstrong, transmitting from the Moon, 3:18 p.m.
“That's one small step for [a] man; one giant leap for mankind.”
Neil A. Armstrong, Commander Apollo 11
“Now approaching lunar sunrise. And for all the people back on Earth, the crew of Apollo eight has a message that we would like to send to you. "In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. And the Earth was without form and void. And darkness was upon the face of the Deep. . . . And God saw that it was good." And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, and a Merry Christmas. And God bless all of you, all of you on the good Earth.”
-flight crew of Apollo 8, live telecast Christmas Eve, 1968.
-'Buzz' Aldrin, second man to walk on the moon.
“Bob, this is Gene, and I'm on the surface; and, as I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come - but we believe not too long into the future - I'd like to just [say] what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus- Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind. Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17.”
—Gene Cernan, Apollo 17. Last man to walk on the Moon.
Hopefully this has been inspiring. I have often dreamt of setting foot on the moon, maybe someday you'll see me up there. Please, take a moment to enjoy...and dream.
