On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy carrying Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin into outer space. The crew safely returned to Earth from their successful mission on July 24, 1969. Since the beginning of time, mankind has looked skyward for inspiration and discovery. These three beautifully engraved prints — Mission, The Eagle Has Landed, and Giant Leap — celebrate an optimistic and inspirational event that secured our Nation’s leadership in space for generations to come. They celebrate the triumph of the human spirit in the face of formidable odds.
Mission: This print is symbolic of the U.S. space program’s mission leading up to the first manned moon landing. The design features an embossing of Apollo 11 and the lunar surface with an engraving of President John F. Kennedy and the inscription “We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”
The Eagle Has Landed: This print is emblematic of the historic proclamation “The Eagle Has Landed” and features an engraving of President Richard M. Nixon with the inscription “Because of what you have done, the heavens have become a part of man’s world. As you talked to us from the Sea of Tranquility, it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and tranquility to Earth.” This print also features an engraved representation of the famous “Buzz Aldrin on the Moon” photograph taken on July 20, 1969. The reflection in astronaut Aldrin’s helmet features astronaut Neil Armstrong, the U.S. flag, and the lunar lander. The background features the lunar module on the embossed surface of the Moon.
Giant Leap: This print captures the historic moment as the world eagerly looked skyward and heard Neil Armstrong’s voice as he declared “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” The design features engravings of astronaut Neil Armstrong saluting the U.S. flag and an embossed footprint on the lunar surface, which together represent the efforts of the U.S. space program leading up to the first manned Moon landing on July 20, 1969.
