"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Words spoken on this day in 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their first steps on the Moon. At that time, the @nasa astronauts made history as a result of the ideological and technological arms race culminated with the Apollo 11 mission. For the next three days on the lunar surface, they would conduct scientific tests and explorations as the world's First men on the Moon. It was estimated that more than one fifth of the human population watched Armstrong and Aldrin land on the moon. No one watching could possibly forget that moment.
Last year, Guinness World Records was honoured to welcome @drbuzzaldrin to GWR London HQ. The now 86-year-old remains passionate about the continuing discoveries in outer space and is currently interested in Mars in particular: "The children born between the years 2000 and 2010 will be the ones making the first landings on Mars. And it’s those kids that we would like to ensure are enthusiastic about the future." #guinnessworldrecords #space #NASA #NeilArmstrong #BuzzAldrin #astronauts #racetospace #galaxy #Moon #discover #Mars #outerspace #mission #Apollo11 #onthisday
