On 20 July 1969, two Americans, Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, were the first people to set foot on another celestial body, the moon, ‘for all mankind’ as it says on the plaque on the Lunar Module Eagle. The Apollo 11mission included a third man, Mike Collins, who stayed behind in the spacecraft Columbia, orbiting the moon and waiting to collect his colleagues so they could all return to Earth together. The dangerous voyage was a complete success, and a remarkable historical milestone.
