But to today, on the anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing, one of the veterans who is still alive has spoken out, sharing photos of the landing that had not been seen before and telling why they held fun memories.
Buzz Aldrin was on the craft that went to the moon with Neil Armstrong. Below, we publish the photos as he shared them.
Of this photo he said: "When kids ask me what it felt like to walk on the moon I say "squishy"! They are #GenerationMars. #Apollo11 "

He said: "I have 3 words to describe why this photo Neil took of me is so iconic: Location, location, location."
