21 July 1969: Edwin Eugene Aldrin, Jr. on the surface of The Moon in a photograph taken by Neil Alden Armstrong.
The reflection of the Lunar Module Eagle and of Armstrong can be seen in Aldrin’s face plate.
“We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. . . .”
—President John Fitzgerald Kennedy
