Apollo Landing Took Place 45 Years Ago Sunday Sunday marked the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. On 20 July 1969, Neil Armstrong climbed down the ladder of the Apollo 11 lunar lander and placed his boot into the moon's dirt, as billions of people around the world watched. The moment still stands as perhaps the most memorable moment in all of human history, as the whole world stopped to watch what was taking place. NASA is now planning another giant leap by heading to Mars. NASA’s Denisse Aranda said, “Going to Mars, searching for life in the universe has allowed us to blend technology and innovation.” NASA today is focused on sending astronauts to Mars by first heading to an asteroid instead of back to the moon. Even with these plans, it is expected to take over a decade before astronauts are able to go beyond the ISS. (Image Credit: NASA)
