Experience the awe-inspiring achievement of the first Moon landing through our exclusive footage of the Apollo 11 mission. Join us as we take a journey back in time to watch history unfold before our eyes, from the moment of launch to the iconic "one small step" on the lunar surface. Relive the moment when Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the Moon and hear his famous words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Being the first person to set foot on the moon has placed him in a unique position in world history, and he is a name that people will probably remember for thousands of years.  But Apollo 11 was not his first spaceflight.   His first flight aboard Gemini 8 was, in many respects, far more exciting and impressive than his exploits on Apollo 11.
