Apollo 11 — Buzz Aldrin's Footprint on the Lunar Surface

Catalogue Note

SIGNED and INSCRIBED by BUZZ ALDRIN: "'A powdery surface when the sun hits...my footstep!' BUZZ ALDRIN Apollo XI"

About an hour into Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's lunar surface excursions, Aldrin photographed this bootprint.  It formed a part of an investigation into the soil make-up and mechanics of the surface of the moon, and the image itself has now become synonymous with the Apollo XI mission.
