Armstrong footprint and
the Apollo 11 lunar laser ranging retroreflector array,
studded with 100 mirrors pointing at Earth, on the moon
in the Sea of Tranquility, which is still running today

Neil Armstrong's words:

That's one step for a man, one giant leap for mankind

"The first object in the night sky most of us ever saw,
the Moon remains a mystery.
Haunted by poets, looked upon by youngsters in love,
studied intensely by astronomers for four centuries,
examined by geologists for the last 50 years,
walked upon by twelve humans,
this is Earth's satellite."
