Buzz Aldrin went to the moon with riding APOLLO11. Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins also went with Buzz Aldrin. It shows the APOLLO11's POWER. Neil Armstrong was the 1st astronaut who landed on the moon and Buzz Aldrin was the 2nd astronaut who landed on the moon. Also APOLLO11 was the spaceflight that landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface 6 hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC. Armstrong spent about two and a half hours outside the spacecraft, Aldrin slightly less; and together they collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material for return to Earth. The Apollo 11 mission insignia was designed by Collins, who wanted a symbol for "peaceful lunar landing by the United States." He chose an eagle as the symbol, put an olive branch in its beak, and drew a lunar background with the Earth in the distance. NASA officials said the talons of the eagle looked too "warlike" and after some discussion, the olive branch was moved to the claws. The crew decided the Roman numeral XI would not be understood in some nations and went with "Apollo 11;" they decided not to put their names on the patch, so it would "be representative of everyone who had worked toward a lunar landing." That's why I think the APOLLO11 had the best, great POWER forever.
