The Apollo 11 Saturn V space vehicle lifted off with Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong,
Michael Collins and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. at 9:32 a.m. EDT July 16, 1969, from Kennedy Space
Center's Launch Complex 39A.
During the planned eight-day mission, Armstrong and Aldrin will
descend in a lunar module to the Moon's surface while Collins orbits overhead in the command
module. The two astronauts are to spend 22 hours on the Moon, including two and one-half hours
outside the lunar module. They will gather samples of lunar material and will deploy scientific
experiments which will transmit data about the lunar environment. They will rejoin Collins in the
command module for the return trip to Earth.
