Apollo 11 Moon landing. Computer artwork of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar module LM-5 Eagle landing on the Moon's surface. Apollo 11 was the first manned lunar landing mission, touching down at 20:17 UTC (universal time) on 20th July 1969. Two of the primary crew members of this American mission, Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, were the first humans to set foot on the Moon. The remaining crew member, Michael Collins, stayed in lunar orbit on board the command module Columbia. The Eagle consisted of two sub-modules: the lower Descent stage and the upper Ascent stage. The two stages were locked together during landing, but only the Ascent stage was used to transport Armstrong and Aldrin back to Columbia, leaving the Descent stage behind on the Moon's surface.
