Apollo XI Crew (Michael Collins, born 1930; Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr., born 1930; Neil Armstrong, 1930–2012)

Apollo XI made the first manned landing on the moon. Armstrong was mission commander. Aldrin piloted the lunar module that descended to the moon from the orbiting command module. Collins piloted the command module. On July 20, 1969, Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon. When he stepped from the ladder of the lunar lander to the surface, he said, “This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Karsh captured the humanity of the brave men who had trained and worked closely together by filling his photo frame with their faces—devoid of NASA spacesuits and military insignia.
