50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 Moon Landing
This outstanding view of the full moon was photographed from the Apollo 11 spacecraft during its trans-Earth journey homeward. When this picture was taken, the spacecraft was already 10,000 nautical miles away. Onboard Apollo 11 were commander Neil Armstrong, command module pilot Michael Collins and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the lunar module Eagle to explore the moon, Collins remained on the command and service module Columbia in lunar orbit. Apollo 11 landed on the lunar surface 50 years ago this month on July 20, 1969. NASA/UPI
