We stood on the shoulders of giants to reach the moon and those giants have names and their names are:

The Crew


There is a formation on the far side of the moon called Apollo. Within that formation are three craters:

CRATER CHAFFEE: 39° South Latitude, 155° West Longitude
CRATER GRISSOM: 45° South Latitude, 160° West Longitude
CRATER WHITE: 48° South Latitude, 149° West Longitude

On July 20th, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon, the first time in history mankind has stepped on another celestial body. They left there, on the Sea of Tranquility, the Apollo 1 mission patch.
