    Captivating the entire world, the Apollo 11 spaceflight achieved the monumental and historic event of landing man on the surface of the Moon for the first time. Armstrong and Aldrin spent a little over two hours on the Moon, conducting experiments and gathering environmental samples, before returning to the Eagle Lunar Module which ultimately rejoined the Columbia Command Module, the latter having been piloted solely by Collins during the Eagle's landing and subsequent events. This achievement closed out the decade of the '60's which began with a challenge by President Kennedy in 1961, namely that "...before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth."
