40 years ago, three human beings - with the help of many thousands of others - left our planet on a successful journey to our Moon, setting foot on another world for the first time. Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the July 16, 1969 launch of Apollo 11 with astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. aboard.

Nile Forsyth on Instagram: "It’s awesome see photos of Apollo 11 & 12 landing sites from India’s ISRO Lunar orbiter. I’ve spent so much of my life learning and enjoying the history of NASA through documentaries, books, and museums it’s a bit of a relief to see. I don’t like to debate & I love the story of the Apollo Program.
