40 years ago; History was made

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

40 years ago, on 20th July 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong these words as he stepped down onto the moon's Sea of Tranquility and created history as the first man to land on the moon.

As the United States celebrate the 40th anniversary of the historic landing, there is a countdown on who will be the next to go to the moon. Russia, China, India and Japan are all expanding their own space programs, with China expressing a desire to be the next country to land on the moon and beyond.

40 years ago, history was made as mankind made a small step towards space. Here’s a hearty congratulations to Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin (second man on the moon), and the rest of NASA on making history 40 years ago!
