This interactive multimodal recount tells the reader about the Apollo 11 space mission – preparation and launch, landing and working on the Moon and the return to Earth.

It includes the audio recording of the countdown and of Neil Armstrong’s historic words, and reveals some of the opinions of people watching the event. The recount is accessed through a calendar showing the most significant dates during the mission.
