Paragraph : Landing on the Moon

Landing on the Moon

The landing on the moon is a great achievement of mankind. The dream and desire of man have been fulfilled when it was July 20, 1969. Three American astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins conquered the moon on behalf of the people of the world. First, the astronauts fired the rockets and blasted off into outer space. They travelled at a great speed. Just 76 hours later they were orbiting the moon. Armstrong and Aldrin left their space ship in a lunar landing craft prepared to land on the moon. Armstrong was the first to climb out and step down. As his left foot touched the rough surface of the moon and said, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” It was for the first time that man was walking on the moon. After 20 minutes Aldrin stepped on the moon. Both astronauts explored the area surrounding the landing craft. They set up a television camera so that the whole world could watch. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 20 hours and 37 minutes on the moon. Then they boarded the landing craft and lifted off. They returned safely to the ship and returned home safe and sound.
