At 10:56 p.m. EDT, astronaut
Neil Armstrong, 240,000 miles from
Earth, speaks these words to more than a billion people listening
at home: “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”      

Stepping off the Apollo 11 lunar landing module Eagle, Armstrong 
became the first human to walk on the surface of the moon.
