Let’s Dive Deep In The Whole Story
The video is narrated by first astronaut and Apollo 11 command module pilot Michael Collins, who reveals that 4,00,000 people from across the globe had worked on Project Apollo. And they are the reason behind this success. Along with Collins, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin were together on the mission.

Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the moon.
“That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind” – Neil Armstrong
These lines become famous after the incident. All the three astronauts safely returned to Earth on July 25, 1969. This was a great achievement for mankind. And this success awarded to mankind was a milestone for Nasa.

So it was a celebration for the whole of mankind as for the very first time we stepped on the moon.
We all live in a dominating male society where women don’t get all that they want and deserve. To maintain the equality between both the genders, NASA has declared that they are working on Apollo’s sister and will send female astronauts to the moon. So that woman can step on the moon for the very first time. Though the lady who will be awarded, this great opportunity is still a suspense.
But cheers to this thinking and initiative!!
