On July 20, 1969, U.S. astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins set off on the Apollo 11 space mission, attempting the first ever lunar landing. Four days later, Armstrong and Aldrin successfully land the lunar module Eagle on the moon's surface as Collins orbited in the command module Columbia. Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon, famously distinguishing the moment as "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." By landing on the moon first, the United States effectively won the Space Race with the Soviet Union, and launched these astronauts as the ultimate American heroes.
We're pleased to present this distinctive Limited Edition Astronaut Set from Fisher Space Pen, commemorating that incredible milestone!
