July 21st 1969: man takes first steps on the Moon. American Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon. The astronaut stepped onto the Moon's surface, in the Sea of Tranquillity, at 02.56 GMT, nearly 20 minutes after first opening the hatch on the Eagle landing craft. Armstrong had earlier reported the lunar module had landed safely at 20.17 GMT the day before, with the words: "Houston; Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed". As he put his left foot down first, he made the iconic announcement "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind", which he said came to him without planning it ahead!
