C339 First in Flight Part V: To the Stars
Issue Date: November 4, 2011
On November 4, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued five new stamps comprising the fifth and final Issue in
its Firsts in Flight Series. "The 'Eagle' has landed!" Millions of people on Earth thrilled to the joyful words of Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong when the famous Lunar Module landed safely
on the surface of the Moon. Guided manually by Armstrong, the "Eagle" touched down on a plain near the southern edge of the Sea of Tranquility. On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m. EDT, Armstrong
lowered himself from the ladder attached to the "Eagle," becoming the first man to walk on the Moon. Armstrong's first words poignantly captured the historic moment: "That's one small step for a
man, one giant leap for mankind." After two hours and thirty-six minutes on the Moon, Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin lifted off in the "Eagle" to begin the long journey back to Earth.
