#1 New Release in History of Astronomy, Space Science, and Aeronautics & Astronautics ─ Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin left humanity’s first footprints on the Moon, July 20, 1969.
The plaque they left behind reads, “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon, July 1969, A.D. We came in peace for all mankind.” But was the Apollo 11 moon landing mission really a global endeavor? How did people outside the United States view these “rocket men”?
Against the political backdrop of the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union, was it, indeed, “For all mankind”? Dr. Tanya Harrison and Dr. Danny Bednar have talked to individuals from a variety of locations outside the United States, to see how this event touched the lives of people across the world.
