Apollo 11: First Men on the Moon

Apollo 11 50th Anniversary - celebrating the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969

First Men on the Moon

These websites let you hear the audio and see video of Apollo 11, but they are so much more than that!  

We Choose the Moon, produced by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, is an interactive timeline of the mission with video animation combined with audio from the event. Photos, historic videos, and information about the time are also included. Hear Neil Armstrong's famous words upon first stepping on the moon here, in Stage 11 of the mission.

The First Men on the Moon site won a 2013 Webby Science award and synchronizes the audio from the command module, the landing module, and NASA control with video from the landing module. It's a fascinating look at what it might have been like to be there.
