Apollo 11 Moon Mission

It’s been half a century since Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon.

The Apollo 11 program was the only time the U.S. put astronauts on the surface of another planet.

Armstrong is one of just 12 people in all of human history to do so. But NASA is using the 50th anniversary to promote it’s new project, called Artemis.
