That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
Spaceflights cannot be stopped. This is not the work of any one man or even a group of men. It is a historical process which mankind is carrying out in accordance with the natural laws of human development.
Never in all their history have men been able truly to conceive of the world as one: a single sphere, a globe, having the qualities of a globe, a round earth in which all the directions eventually meet, in which there is no center because every point, or none, is center — an equal earth which all men occupy as equals. The airman’s earth, if free men make it, will be truly round: a globe in practice, not in theory.
Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon. July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind.
We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically.
