Remembering the Moonwalk

On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 pm (EDT), Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon.

Around the world, people stayed up late, woke up early, and stopped their work to watch their televisions or listen to their radios to witness this riveting milestone in the history of science and technology. Now, emblazoned in the popular consciousness, are Armstrong’s words: “That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Please help us preserve the public memory of this historic event in an online archive so that future generations can understand the magnitude of this experience.
