Men From The Planet Earth by markkarvon Men From The Planet Earth by markkarvon
On July 20, 1969 men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon. They came in peace for all mankind.

After several Apollo missions to test the harware, navigation and maneuvers required for a lunar landing, the crew of Apollo 11 became the first to accomplish the goal.

The Apollo Lunar Module was the first true spaceship designed and flown by man. It could only operate in the vacuum of space. It not only served to ferry two men to and from the surface of the moon it also served as their temporary home for up to three days on later missions. In all, six Apollo missions landed on the moon.

God Bless Grumman for creating the only part of the Apollo program that didn't fall when it was needed.

Houston, the Eagle has landed.

"That's one small step for Man. One giant leap for mankind."

It is sad that the last few great pioneers are now dead. RIP Crews of Apollo, Gemini, Mercury.
SURELY, you had THE RIGHT STUFF.

They're not all dead. In fact, most of them are still alive as of this date. They are getting older though...

This is excellent. I remember watching Apollo 11 live when it happened.

I've always loved the Lunar Module's design. Its geometric panels and colorful matte and shiny contrasts... really are quite a visual feast to an artist interested in such things. I like this a lot, very beautiful work.

Thank you. I have always been fascinated with the machines that got men to the moon.

RIP Neil Armstrong. He and his fellow astronauts left a legacy that will always be remembered as long as humans continue to record history.
