Today is the 44th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon with the first steps on the moon just a few hours later.
Oddly enough I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere in the press, not to say it isn’t, just not where I looked.
The Landing took place at 20:17.40 UTC (16:17.4 EDT) in the Sea of Tranquility.
Spacelog.org has the mission transcripts you can read the entire transcript from the begining if you have the time, Just click here to begin.
I’ve linked a couple of places to start reading to get you a little further along in the mission and you can explore from there if you like.
The first is from the point when Buzz Aldrin announces the program alarm
The second is from the begin of the first famous quote from the surface Houston, Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed.
I hope you enjoy the transcripts as much as I do.
