When astronaut Neil A. Armstrong set foot on the lunar surface he said "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Shortly before this famous quote Americans heard at approximately 6:00 P.M. EST Astronaut Armstrong report "Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed." [referring to the Eagle Lunar Module].

On the second mission to the Moon [Apollo 12] on October 27, 1969, Commander Charles "Pete" Conrad stepped off the Lunar Module and stated "Whoopee! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me!"
