THESE APOLLO 11 MISSION PHOTOS WILL TRANSPORT YOU BACK TO A REMARKABLE DAY IN HISTORY

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong made history when he landed on the moon with Buzz Aldrin and took that first “small step for mankind” on the lunar surface. Forty-five years later, we remember that day during the Apollo 11 mission as one that changed the world forever.

While you’ve probably seen the iconic picture of Buzz Aldrin next to the U.S. flag, you probably haven’t seen these behind the scenes photos of the Apollo 11 mission. So check out photos of their launch day breakfast and suiting up to leave the earth here.
