20 July 1969 (20:17) The lunar module (LM) Eagle lands safely on the lunar surface, in the region known as Mare Tranquilitatis, the Sea of Tranquility. With that Apollo 11 became the first manned moon landing ever. One minute later, mission Commander Neil Armstrong radioed back to earth: “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.”
The journey from earth had taken 4 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes.
