Here’s more about this historic event that took place 45 years ago today, according to an article on aol.com:

“On July 16th, 1969, three Americans launched into space and headed straight for the moon.

Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins were all in their 30s as millions of Americans followed their historic venture to the surface of the moon.

Four days after the launch, Armstrong and Aldrin hopped into the lunar module nicknamed “Eagle” and landed on the moon.

After two hours of system checks and a quick bite, Armstrong took the very first steps.

Aldrin followed shortly after.

NASA will be live tweeting as if social media were around 45 years ago. The media team based at the Kennedy Space Center will be using the hashtag #apollo11 so you can follow along.”
