In the summer of 1969, the United States space agency known as NASA achieved a decade-long goal it had sought: landing a man on the moon and returning him to Earth. Fulfilling a promise laid out by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin went to the moon and back.

Four days later, the crew approached the moon with Michael Collins piloting the command module as Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong descended to the moon in the Eagle lunar lander.
