Later, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent more than two hours walking on the Moon and conducting experiments and sampling. Astronaut Michael Collins is in charge of sitting inside to control the Apollo 11 system.

Before returning to the spacecraft, the astronauts also plugged an American flag on the Moon. They also took many photos from the surface and trajectory of this satellite.

At 1149 on July 24, 1969, the Apollo 11 and three astronauts safely landed in the Pacific, ending an eight-day important journey in the history of human progress. Neil Armstrong had a timeless saying: 'This is a small step of a person, but a great step forward of humanity'.

This great event has been reported live and broadcast globally. About 600 million people around the world directly monitor the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon via television.

According to NASA estimates, a total of 400,000 people across the United States participate in the Apollo program, from astronauts, flight controllers, contractors to food suppliers, engineers, scientists, Doctor, nurse, mathematician and programmer.

So far, a total of 12 people have set foot on the Moon on 6 missions from Apollo 11 to Apollo 17.
