Two Americans landed together on the Moon on July 20, 1969. They were Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin, who were the Commander and the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11. The third crew member was Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, who stayed in orbit around the Moon whilst the other two descended to the surface. Armstrong then became the first person to set foot on the surface of the Moon.
