A man on the moon
On the twenty-first of July 1969 American astronaut Neil Armstrong opened the door of the lunar module, the Eagle, and walked outside. He was on the moon. He was the first man in history to walk on the moon. It was a fantastic moment.

A few minutes later, Buzz Aldrin was the second man on the moon. Armstrong and Aldrin then took photos and made a film of their short time on the moon. They also collected information and spoke to the American president, Richard Nixon, on the phone. Nixon said it was a 'historic phone call'. They placed an American flag there and left.

The twenty-first of July 1969 was a very important and exciting day. On earth, a lot of people listened to their radios all day because they wanted to hear the news about the men on the moon. And everybody in the world watched the news to see the first pictures of the men on the moon. Was it true? Was it real? People didn't believe what they saw. And today, people over 50 can remember where they were when Armstrong walked on the moon.

In November 1969, the Americans went on a second trip to the moon and everybody watched. In the 1970s, astronauts went on five more trips. But after that, the American government decided that they didn't want to spend millions and millions of dollars on trips to the moon. The last man on the moon was there in 1972.
