The Moon Landing

Categories Graphic Design, IllustrationPosted on

In a 1961 address to the United States Congress, then President John F. Kennedy expressed his desire for landing men on the moon saying “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.” And though the President didn’t live to see his dream realized, NASA’s Apollo program, with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin crewing the Apollo 11 lunar mission, fulfilled Kennedy’s wish by being the first humans to set foot on the surface of the moon on July 21, 1969. Since then only five Apollo missions have landed men on the Moon, the last being in 1972.
