Ana the car was in first gear, so the car began to move forward…
M: And what did he say to you? Did he get angry?
E: He didn’t say anything… he was astonished… but the worst still to come… He told me to press gently press down on the handbrake … but it was under so much pressure that I put my left foot on the brake… and I made him bang his head on the windscreen!!!

In 1962, US President JF Kennedy promised to the moon before 1970. It was seven more years before NASA figured out how to do it. In July 1969, when the time was running out, three astronauts carried out the historic mission onboard Apollo 11. American astronaut Neil Armstrong opened the hatch and became the first man to walk on the moon. In Houston engineers who were on duty at mission control breathe a sigh of relief when they saw Armstrong step onto the moon. All over the world, people were watching TV and they cheer as they heard Armstrong say his famous words: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. Armstrong came up with his famous words after landing on the moon.
