50th Anniversary—The First Man on the Moon (July 21, 1969)

“That’s one small step for man, a giant leap for mankind” are Neil Armstrong’s famous words when he steps on the moon for the first time in human history. More than half a billion people watch the event live on their TV screens. Not only is the moon landing the first global television spectacle but it is also the pinnacle in the space race between the USA and the Soviet Union. After the “Sputnik crisis” had paralyzed the USA, President John F. Kennedy announced the goal to send a man to the moon and safely back to earth before the end of the decade. He launches the Apollo program, which receives up to 4 percent of the yearly federal budget and employs up to 400,000 people. A prominent employee was the German engineer Wernher von Braun, who had developed the V2-rocket during the Third Reich.   

After the completion of several test runs Kennedy’s vision becomes reality with the Apollo 11 mission, shortly before his self-proclaimed deadline. On July 16, 1969 a Saturn-V-rocket with three astronauts aboard is launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  Three days later they reach the lunar orbit. While Michael Collins flies the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin continue on the Apollo lunar module Eagle and land on the moon the following day. A few hours later—on July 21 at 02:56:20 UTC—they enter the lunar surface, plant a US flag, deploy measurement tools and take a variety of samples. After a 2.5-hour walk on the moon they return to the Columbia, which splashes down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24th. 

Following a three-week-quarantine the Apollo heroes are received with a ticker-tape-parade in New York City. In October 1969 the three astronauts visit West Berlin as part of a goodwill tour that takes them to 22 countries.
