It was 44 years ago today that Man's first attempt to Land on the Moon was Launched from Cape Kennedy Florida.



The Crew: CDR Neil Armstrong, CMP Michael Collins, LMP Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin



The Mission Flight Plan






In July of 1969, America sent the first humans to the moon. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins were aboard the mission named Apollo 11.
The launch vehicle they rode, the Saturn 5 rocket, is still the most powerful machine ever built. It generated almost 8 million pounds of thrust and even after nearly 40 years, it is the only vehicle that has carried men beyond earth's gravity.
Watch it now, as you would have seen it on July 16, 1969, at 9:26 AM EDT. T-minus 00:5:59 and counting.
