A Moon landing includes both crewed and robotic missions. The first human-made object to touch the Moon was the Soviet's "Luna 2" in 1959. The United States' Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon in 1969. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Edwin (“Buzz”) Aldrin, Jr., became the first people to land on the Moon. The last mission to the moon was in 1972.
Luna 2 was the sixth of the Soviet Union's Luna programme spacecraft launched to the Moon. The probe was the first human-made object to reach the surface of another celestial body. The spacecraft was launched on 12 September 1959.
Apollo 11 was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. Apollo 11 was launched by a Saturn V rocket from Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida carrying the crew into an initial Earth-orbit of 114 by 116 miles. Just four days after launching the spacecraft neared the moon’s surface. Splashdown of Apollo 11 occurred in the Pacific Ocean on July 24.
Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins were the astronauts who made the historic trip from Earth on Apollo 11. On July 20, Armstrong stepped out onto the lunar soil with the words, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
