  1. On July 20, 1969, Edwin Aldrin and Neil Armstrong were the first humans to land on the moon.

    Egressing the lunar module was incredibly easy compared to landing. They worked as a team to accomplish that. One of the two – chosen by whomever on whatever basis – had to go first down a ladder designed for one person at a time for weight reduction/rocket thrust considerations.

    Beyond that, Michael Collins was the third crew member remaining in orbit in the command module. One of the three had to stay there. His situation was unique, being alone in orbit around the moon. Aldrin and Armstrong at least had each others company, eh?

    Finally, it was a great team effort. Isaac Newton’s statement, about his own accomplishments being possible due to his having stood on the shoulders of the intellectual giants who came before him, comes to mind.
