Google Doodle: Mike Collins Recounts Moon Mission

Moon Landing

Google Doodle: Mike Collins recounts the U.S. Moon Mission of 50 years ago. It was at 3:17 p,m. EDT (or 20:17 UTC ) 50 years ago today that NASA landed  the Eagle spacecraft (“the lunar module”) on the surface of the moon. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin followed by walking on the moon. Mike Collins, in the command module, was orbiting 60 miles above the moon surface. Google writes that the next stage in the moon program, after a long absence, is about to begin: “NASA’s new Artemis lunar exploration program will land the first woman, and the next man, on the Moon by 2024. With innovative commercial and international partnerships, NASA will establish sustainable lunar exploration by 2028. Using the Moon as a stepping stone, NASA is preparing for humanity’s next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars. Click here to learn more.”
