Apollo 11 command module Columbia in Milestones of Flight

The Apollo 11 command module Columbia carried astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins to the Moon and back in July 1969. During that historic eight-day mission, only 66 years after the Wright brothers' first flight, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to walk upon the surface of another world.
