Caption: The Apollo 11 crewmen, wearing biological isolation garments, arrive aboard the recovery ship the USS Hornet. The three astronauts, Neil A. Armstrong (commander), Michael Collins (command module pilot) and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin (lunar module pilot), are about to enter a mobile quarantine unit (right). Apollo 11 splashed down after the historic lunar landing mission on 24 July, 1969. Splashdown occurred in the central Pacific, about 1500 km southwest of Hawaii and only 22 km from the waiting recovery ship. The crew remained in quarantine for 18 days until 10 August 1969.
