In just a few short days, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first humans to step foot on the moon, while crew member Michael Collins kept the command module Columbia on its lunar path. Our archive contains tense footage inside Cape Canaveral and Houston control rooms , spectacular launch footage , the astronauts on the moon , and the memorable moment where Richard Nixon met the Apollo 11 crew aboard the USS Hornet.
