In 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to step foot on the Moon. The two astronauts spent 2 hours and 13 minutes on the lunar surface gathering rock samples, setting up tests and a US flag. They also took photos and left behind footprints along with a plaque commemorating the historic event.
