I'm not positive but I belived he just walked and then jumped to test gravity Armstrong and Aldrin collected rocks and samples of the lunar soil during their relatively short time on the surface.

They installed and conducted a number of experiments to analyze soil, solar wind, moon quakes, lunar dust, seismic activity, and a laser experiment to measure the distance between the Moon and Earth.

Later missions performed a greater number of experiments as more became known of man's capabilities in space. In addition, they left a memorial to astronauts and cosmonauts who had died, and placed an American flag which later fell as the lunar module ascent stage blasted off from the surface.

Once inside the lunar module, they ate, slept and Aldrin even took communion in a private ceremony.

Why does earth have liquid water and the moon does not?

"The moon does not have enough pressure to keep water in a liquid form while the Earth does. The moon also does not have enough gravity to keep the water on its surface." Basically what the above person has said, on the Moon the gravitational pull is weaker... That is why you see on video's spacemen/ spacewomen 'bouncing' on the Moon. Also, their is no atmosphere on the Moon to keep it in liquid form. Hence the fact that spacemen/women have to wear suits filled with oxygen from oxygen tanks as they wouldn't be able to breathe. Also, Water's chemical symbol is: H2O. As there is no Oxygen on the Moon or Hydrogen, water will not 'survive' (if you want to say it as survive but it will not last). Hope my answer and the above answer helped you. :D
