First Human Footprint shows how 50-years and a quarter of a million miles ago, mankind first stepped foot on another world. This July, Earth will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first step on the moon, Apollo’s most celebrated moment.
We, the United States of America, had won a very real race to show which country could first land men on the Moon and return them safely to Earth.
This amazing achievement demonstrated the collective will and capability of over 400,000 American men and women doing their jobs with care and precision.
Neil Armstrong’s footprint on the Moon will serve as an eternal testament to the can-do ability of mankind. Unfortunately, there are no good photographs of this moment. Although the black-and-white television image was not very good for that first moonwalk, the soundtrack is still very clear.
When astronaut/artist Alan Bean first started painting, he experimented with landscapes on earth. He never imagined that, only a few years later in 1969, he would be walking on a completely different surface — the Moon. Nor did he foresee a second career as an artist, focusing on the landscape of the moon, as well as images of the earth seen from outer space.
