Space Toys for your little Astronaut

by Katie Schubert

On July 16, 1969, three Americans flew into space to go where no human had
been before – the moon. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and
Michael Collins spent a total of eight days on their mission to and from the moon.
When Neil and Buzz (Michael stayed behind on their spaceship) landed on the
surface of the moon three days later on July 20, 1969, more than 650 million
people were watching live on their TVs worldwide. That’s even more impressive
considering the world had only 3.6 billion people on it compared to today’s more
than eight billion.
