The original 7 astronauts were the first astronauts to be sent to the moon. The crew of Apollo 11 left Earth’s orbit in February 1969, and three men landed on the surface of the moon in July of 1969. Their mission was to explore the lunar surface, look for evidence of water and life, and take pictures of the moon and its surface.
The idea of space exploration is one that has always fascinated me, and since the start of the space race in the 1950s I have always been intrigued with the concept of going out into space. But while I’ve always been fascinated with this concept, it came as a bit of a shock when my own childhood friend and NASA astronaut, Neil Armstrong, died on April 5, 2012.
Neil Armstrong was an incredible man, and one of the most iconic figures in American history. No one knows for sure when he was born (his mother’s age is some debate), but it is clear we can trace his family tree back to 1867, when the first documented lander landed on the moon. As for Armstrong’s actual early years, he grew up in a highly religious household.
It’s not clear exactly when Armstrong got the bug to become an astronaut, but he was on the Moon on Apollo 11 and was there for four days. He also served aboard the space shuttle Challenger, and became the captain of the Apollo 11 mission. Armstrongs spaceflight career was also punctuated by a trip to the moon, where he became the first American to see the surface of the moon, and a visit to the first landing site.
Armstrongs first spaceflight was in 1969 when he carried out a spacewalk to collect samples for lunar rock samples. As for his second spaceflight, he was on the space shuttle Columbia carrying out a spacewalk in 1973.
He was also an astronaut for the first mission of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, which was the first manned space flight to the International Space Station. Armstrong was a co-pilot on this mission. He was the first American to venture to the space station.
I’d like to point out that this video is the original version of the Space Shuttle Endeavour. It was the first time we got to see the Space Shuttle Columbia. And it’s a really good one.
The Apollo Astronauts were the seventh crew of the space shuttle, and they made a number of spacewalks in 1975, one of them on July 23rd, when they were back at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where they built the Spacelab. We can’t talk about that one, but there are a lot of cool things to talk about about the end of the Space Shuttle program.
We got to see many of the famous astronauts, but we didnt get to see the ones we wanted to see. For me one of the big ones was Neil Armstrong. He played a part in ending Apollo 11, but sadly he died on August 21st, 2012 at the age of 63. But we got to see his famous “Apollo 11” pose.
Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon, and the first person to go there by himself. He was also the first man to walk on the moon as a military pilot. But he was not the first American to die in space. For years before Neil Armstrong died, there were rumors that an attempt would be made to take over the world with the help of the seven astronauts who died on the original mission.
