On July 20, 1969, mankind accomplished its single greatest achievement of all time when a Navy Aviator raised in a farmhouse in Wapakoneta, Ohio, first set foot on another celestial body. The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. In addition to one million people crowding the highways and beaches near the launch site, an estimated audience of over 700 million people viewed the event on television, Driven by dreams ?? and funded by a burning desire to beat the Russians ?? the first moon landing on July 20, 1969, was a defining moment in history. Never before had so many people, in so many countries, watched a single event with such astonishment and wonder.
