Today it was “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”! The nation celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first manned flight and footsteps on the moon Saturday. July 20th, 1969 saw the crew of the Eagle Lunar Lander, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, conquer the Moon, which had been prophetically inspired by President John F. Kennedy just a few years earlier. Vice President Mike Pence, along with Aldrin, appeared at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center to a stirring round of applause. Armstrong and Aldrin landed in the Sea of Tranquility on that historic date with Armstrong being the first one out of the spaceship and chanting those significant words, which truly opened up the new possibilities of space travel. Armstrong died in 2012.
