First humans on the Moon

In July 2009, we humans celebrated the Apollo 40th Anniversary. Fourty years ago the first humans landed on the Moon, the closest celestial object to the Earth. This succesful lunar landing continued until 1972. Apollo 17 marked the last moonwalk and the last manned mission beyond low Earth orbit. NASA has made an interactive application on the first moon landing. You can explore the moon from different locations just like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin did.
