Astronaut Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. poses for a photograph beside the U.S. flag deployed on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969. Aldrin and fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong were the first men to walk on the lunar surface with temperatures ranging from 243 degrees above to 279 degrees below zero. Astronaut Michael Collins flew the command module. The trio was launched to the moon by a Saturn V launch vehicle at 9:32 a.m. EDT, July 16, 1969. They departed the moon July 21,

I only took a few photos on the moon and this one was to show how the lunar dust was like talcum powder. #Apollo11 (Neil had the camera most of the time as it was my job to set up the experiments.)

When kids ask me what it felt like to walk on the moon I say "squishy"! They are #GenerationMars. #Apollo11
