“I think we're going to the moon because it's in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It's by the nature of his deep inner soul… we're required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.”

(Neil Armstrong, press conference of the Apollo 11’s mission, 1969)

On July 21st, 1969 at 2:56 am, Neil Armstrong’s first step onto the lunar surface was broadcast on live TV to a worldwide audience, some hours after he and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo 11 on the Moon.

Armstrong described the event as a “small step for [a] man, but [a] giant leap for mankind”. The human history has been made by challenges, both individual and collective actions that has changed its flow: small and big revolutions that tore down walls while building the Future.
