NASA has shared the image that got carved out on the lunar surface and in the history of space exploration when Neil Armstrong put his left foot on the surface of the Moon on July 20, 1969 — the first human footprint there. "What was only one small step 52 years ago, has inspired a lifetime of wonder," the space agency said in a post on Instagram, alongside one of the most defining images of the last century. Armstrong, Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin, and Michael Collins were on the Apollo 11 Mission. However, only Armstrong and Aldrin took the Lunar Module, named Eagle, to the Moon and they left Collins in orbit. In the post, NASA added, "On this day, we celebrate the Moon landing and salute the heroes, visionaries, and explorers who not only made the seemingly impossible, possible – but inspired us to return." The space agency also mentioned its plans "to take the next giant leap", which is "landing the first woman and first person of colour on the Moon". The historic image of Neil Armstrong’s left foot has got more than 16 lakh likes within 11 hours of being shared. Here’s the post: View this post on… Read full this story
