Today in History: First Man on the Moon

On July, 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.  As he stepped out of the lunar landing module, 240,000 miles from earth, he spoke these words that would become enshrined in our nation’s history: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind“.

(On a side note, I watched the lunar landing with my good friend, David Garrett!)
