Astronaut Neil Armstrong, commander of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon was the first man to step onto its surface fifty years ago on July 20, 1969. This famous scientific achievement focused the world’s attention on Neil Armstrong and his companions, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins. But getting them to the moon and back again safely was the work of a decade by thousands of dedicated scientists and mathematicians.
