Giant Leap for Mankind
Thanks to Even Stevens, we’ll always know that ♪ we went to the moon in 1969. ♪ The Apollo 11 mission was a huge turning point in science. It showed that not only can man make it past our own planet, but we can safely land on a celestial body 384,000 kilometers away. And to think the hardware that made the mission a success was weaker than what our smartphones come with!
What you see in this picture is a rocket that belonged to one of the Apollo 11 modules. It took several years before divers were able to locate and extract the rocket from the depths of the ocean.
