The 50th anniversary of the historic first moon landing

On July 20, 1969, humans set foot on a celestial body for the first time, as US astronaut Neil Armstrong reached the moon to take what he described as “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. Five decades later, the world is reflecting on the historic first arrival on the surface of Earth’s satellite, and how the lunar landing enthralled an estimated 650 million people who watched the event on television.
