Sam W —- lunar landing


 Hi guys! This is my first time making a blog and I hope you enjoy it 🙂 

What is the lunar landing?

The lunar landing was a giant event in history, it’s the thing that shaped our lives, the thing that shaped HUMANITY… It was… A rocket. Yeah, a rocket that went to space. Many people were over the moon (please excuse the pun) but it was a great thing at the time.

The people on the space ship:

The people were Neil Armstrong ,Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin, and Micheal Collins.  these were the brave men that travelled to the moon.Buzz and Armstrong brought back 48.5Ib of material including 50 rocks samples of lunar soil and rock.

Apollo 11 was the first flight to send people to the Moon. It was done by NASA, the America space group. It went up to space on 16 July 1969, carrying three astronauts: Neil, Buzz and Michael. On 20 July 1969, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the moon, while Collins stayed in orbit around the Moon.

The flight was part of the space race. It finished the plan set by John Kennedy in 1961 to “land a man on the moon, and return him safely to the Earth”, before the 1960s.
