MEN ON THE MOON

By: Natalie Alexander

the beginning of space travel
The Beginning of Space Travel…
  • Fifty years after the Wright Brothers invented the first propelled plane, space travel was considered.
  • The U.S.S.R. and the U.S. began a race to see who could get the first craft into space.
  • The U.S.S.R. wins, sending the first unmanned craft, Sputnik, into space.
  • The U.S.S.R. also sent Sputnik 2 into space, carrying a dog named Laika.

  • After Sputnik and Sputnik 2 were launched, the next race began: the race to send the first manned craft into space.
  • The U.S.S.R. won again, sending Yuri A. Gargarin into space on Vostok 1.
  • However, on July 20th, 1969, NASA sent Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin, Jr. to the moon.

One small step for man…
  • Neil Armstrong was the first one out of their lunar lander, the Eagle. He set up a small camera outside the shuttle.
  • 600 million people watched as he and Aldrin set foot on the moon.
  • Armstrong then recited the famous quote: “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
  • The two astronauts then planted an American flag on the moon’s surface.
behind the scenes
Behind the scenes…
  • While Armstrong and Aldrin are well known for actually stepping on the moon, there was another person in space with them.
  • Michael Collins stayed aboard the Colombia(the command module) while Armstrong and Aldrin became two of the most famous men in history.
  • Collins is the third member of the Apollo 11 mission that is not as well known.

  • On July 24th, 1969, the Colombia reentered Earth’s atmosphere.
  • Parachutes were released, and the Colombiadrifted into the Pacific Ocean thirteen miles from the target point.
what happened next
What happened Next?
  • Since the Apollo 11 mission, space travel has advanced considerably.
  • There have been many more moon landings.
  • We have also put a rover on Mars, many satellites and even a space station into orbit, and cameras and telescopes all over space.
  • The data from the moon landing has contributed to all of these achievements.
