“After proving that humanity has the ability to go beyond the confines of planet Earth, the first humans to walk on another world -- Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin -- flew the ascent stage of their Lunar Module back to meet Michael Collins in the moon-orbiting Command and Service Module. On July 21, 1969 the ascending [from the Moon] spaceship was captured by Collins making its approach, with the Moon below, and Earth far in the distance.”

“NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, has returned its first imagery of the Apollo moon landing sites. This picture shows Apollo 11 mission's lunar module descent stage sitting on the moon's surface, as a long shadow from a low sun angle makes the module's location evident.”
