Present day, the James Webb Space Telescope peers into the distant past from orbit. But today in 1969 was one of the greatest moments in human history!
“At 10:56 p.m. EDT Armstrong is ready to plant the first human foot on another world. With more than half a billion people watching on television, he climbs down the ladder and proclaims: ‘That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.'”
In 1969 the world’s population was 3.6 billion.
