20th July 1969
This is Sam Cook, reporting the launching of the spaceship that's going to reach the moon.
Here we are, waiting for the countdown. Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins are in the Apollo spaceship on top of the Saturn 5 rocket, 110 meters above the ground.
Here is the countdown: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. Here it goes. A terrible noise, lots of vibrations.
A few minutes after the launching, the speed is 10 000 km.p.hour. Look! The first floor and the second stage are released.
(…) The speed is 30 000 km.p.h.
(…) Now the spaceship is placed into orbit.
(5 days later)
Now they are reaching phase 5 and approaching the Moon. They are near the Moon and they leave the capsule and go into the Lunar Module (L.M.) to land on the Moon. The L.M. lands on the Moon at a speed of 9 km.p.h
Neil Armstrong is the first man on the Moon. He is climbing down the ladder. And now, he's taking his first step on the Moon. Listen, he is going to speak. It's extraordinary. The words are clear: 'That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.'
