Neil Armstrong Becomes the First Man to Walk on the Moon (1969)

As commander of Apollo 11, Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the Moon. With hundreds of millions watching a broadcast of his history-making moonwalk, he uttered the now famous line, "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." Buzz Aldrin followed, and the two astronauts proceeded to set up scientific equipment, conduct experiments, and collect samples from the lunar surface. What other spacecraft landed on the moon while Apollo 11 was still there? More...

Ever since the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969 – which celebrates its 50th anniversary today – sceptics have claimed it was all a con.

But space rock specialist and ANU scientist Professor Trevor Ireland says rocks prove the mission really did take place.

He says such fakery would simply be too costly and difficult.

"Any attempt to make Moon rocks in a laboratory would be a monumental failure and likely cost more money than it took Nasa to get to the Moon and back," Professor Ireland explained. The Sun.

Three new minerals were discovered in the rock samples collected by the astronauts: armalcolite, tranquillityite, and pyroxferroite. Armalcolite was named after Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins.

Awesome.

I am sure they were there. As for the three different minerals discovered, assuming that Moon was once part of Earth, I woud be sceptic.
