With “...one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” astronaut, Neil Armstrong, pilot of the lunar spacecraft, the Eagle, made the first footsteps on the surface of the moon at 10:56 p.m. EDT on July 20th in 1969. Which foot did Armstrong use to step on the grainy, grayish, lunar soil? His left.
And where were you and what were you doing when it happened? Me: I was grilling steaks with Steven Johnson in Jane Waldauer's yard in Milledgeville, Ga and listening to the moon walk on the car radio.
