That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind

On July 20th, 1969 Apollo 11 lands on the Moon on the Sea of Tranquillity and transmits the message, “Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed." Six and a half hours later, astronaut Neil Armstrong becomes the first man to walk on the Moon, followed by Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin. As Armstrong steps onto the lunar surface he proclaims, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Across the globe, nearly 700 million television viewers witness the event as it happens.

Solar Eclipse

Stunning photos of this morning's solar eclipse

A total solar eclipse occurred this morning, captured in the Faroe Islands, and Svalbard.  A partial eclipse was visible from Scotland to northern Africa.  A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun.  The moon obscures our parent start and becomes a dark silhouette edged with light.  Because the moon blocks the sun's rays, it casts a shadow of darkness over a small part of Earth beneath it.  Lunar eclipses are different in that Earth comes between the sun and the moon.
