Now we are celebrating the Anniversary of the first men landed on the moon. The USA challenged itself to defeat the Russians. They send out astronauts to the most hazardous and dangerous adventure : “to walk to the moon”
On July 21, 1969, while some of us were sleeping and some of us were not even alive yet, two men took over the television. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are the first men to have landed on the moon. An astonishing triumph for the USA. We awed by the courage of the two astronauts. They didn’t care if they were not able to come back to Earth.

How do they feel when they see the earth from afar. They are outside of the planet that they live on. Goosebumps I must say. This is what they called a “historic step for human species”. The Moon is a hundred thousand and more kilometers distant from the Earth, and we did it. Neil Armstrong called it “ One giant leap for mankind”. It was a breakthrough that we can do anything with the help of science. It’s another technological achievements that we can soar high and go outside and beyond the space and step your foot on the cosmic sand.
Lunar Rover is the advanced technology that helps these men to roam on the moon’s surface. Neil Armstrong said the historic words, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
What Else are we capable of? Thanks to Apollo, it makes the impossible possible.
