Eagle has landed
The event that captivated the world was a man landing on the moon in 1969, which was followed by more Apollo missions. Shown here is the Apollo's lunar module which landed on the moon and returned Apollo astronauts to the orbiting command module in 1972. This photo shows the lunar module during its ascent. Thrusters are on the sides, and the hatch allowing access to the moon's surface is visible in front.
