To celebrate the anniversaryGooglehas created a special videoDoodle, which is narrated by Michael Collins, who piloted the command module
in the Apollo 11 mission.
Its central character - Armstrong - was 38 years old when he led his men into the command module
After scanning the module's instrument panel, Aldrin discovered that the broken switch was for the ascent engine, the main component that will fly the Eagle back to the Columbia command module
that was waiting in lunar orbit.
The two men made history, but spare a thought for third astronaut Michael Collins who had to stay in the command module
and wait for them.
It combines spectacular footage with interviews from some key figures in the Apollo 11 mission including astronaut, Michael Collins, who was the command module
pilot, orbiting the Moon as his colleagues Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made their first steps, and flight director Gene Kranz.
Once there, after the bulk of the rocket had been disposed in stages into space, the Command Module
would orbit the Moon, and the Lunar Module would land.
The pair descended in the LM Eagle to Tranquility Base, leaving Collins alone in the command module
, Columbia, to orbit the moon while taking pictures.
Four days later when Eagle -- Apollo 11's lunar module -- separated from the command module
Columbia at the far side of the Moon, the world waited to see what would happen.
