Let’s Celebrate 45th Anniversary Of Moon Landing

July 20, 2014 will mark the 45th anniversary of the first moonwalk.

On July 16, 1969 the three Apollo 11 astronauts – Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin “Buzz” E. Aldrin – left the Earth and took off for the Moon. They returned heroes in a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on July 24. It was possibly the most productive 8 day trip in human history.

This anniversary of landing on the moon celebrates one of the greatest achievements of the modern age. To celebrate this event we’ve prepared for you this collection of photographs. Enjoy.
