The Apollo 11 mission is still one of the most famous lunar mission ever to be accomplished by humans. It was the 1st ever manned lunar mission to land on the moon. The 3 astronauts became famous immediately after the Apollo 11 was an success. Perhaps one of the most famous of them all was Neil Armstrong. Armstrong became famous for 2 things: He was the 1st man to step on the moon, and he delivered the famous speech: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." For the Apollo 11, not only did we just put a flag and people on the moon, the U.S gained some precious moon rock and scientific research. Armstrong and Aldrin collected rock/soil samples and brought them back to Earth. The Apollo 11 was a huge success.
