8 astronauts of the Apollo mission met in honor of the 50th anniversary of the first landing of a man on the moon

In 2019 marks exactly 50 years since the first landing of a man on the moon. In honor of this event in New York met eight American astronauts who participated in the legendary series of flights to the natural satellite of the Earth.

Walter Cunningham (Apollo 7), Rusty Schweickart (Apollo 9), Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins (Apollo 11), Fred Hayes (Apollo 13), Al Warden (Apollon 15 ”), Charlie Duke (Apollo 16) and Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17) are those outstanding personalities who have gone down in history forever and who participated in this event on April 5th.

The Buzz Aldrin, a member of the first ever moon landing under the command of Neil Armstrong, who appeared in a fancy color suit, with solid costume jewelry and socks in the color of the US flag, became the “highlight of the program”. This elderly man clearly stood out from the general group, which is not so surprising, because, apart from science, he was very interested in fashion, even participated two years ago in Fashion Week in New York, along with famous actor Bill Nyem.

In total, from July 1969 to December 1972, NASA made six landings on the Moon, 12 astronauts walked on its surface, the last of which was Eugene Cernan, who died in January 2017.
