At 9:32 am on July 16, 1969, the gigantic Saturn V of Cape Canaveral was launched, the most significant voyage in human history. The huge Saturn V consisted of three main stages, was 110 m high and weighed 3,000 tons. She was able to carry a payload of 50 t and reached a speed of 11.2 km/second. The 394,000 km trip to the moon took 72 hours. After reaching a low Earth orbit, the upper assembly with the Apollo capsule from the third stage of the launch vehicle received the boost to reach the speed of flight to the moon. Later, the Apollo assembly detached itself from the rocket, turned and pulled the lunar module out of its protective cover. Coupled to each other, this unit came to the moon and swung into lunar orbit. After some lunar orbits, the lunar module with astronauts N. Armstrong and E. Aldrin on board separated from the command capsule in which only the astronaut M. Collins remained. The lunar module set to landing in the sea of rest with two ignitions of the retrofit engine. This historic event will never be forgotten.
