July 20, 1969: Lunar Happenings

After Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin land, Armstrong utters the now-famous words, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." The pair plants an American flag on the surface, collects scientific samples, and arranges experiments. Pictured: Aldrin standing on the surface of the moon next to American flag during Apollo 11 mission. (Neil A. Armstrong/Time and Life Pictures/Getty Images/LIFE.com)
