During his remarks he noted how the agency had be re-directed to return to the Moon via the newly-announced Artemis Program.

Wapakoneta 10K runner Robert Rocco, 54, a retired Air Force officer from Centerville, Ohio, called the moon landing by Armstrong and Aldrin "perhaps the most historic event in my lifetime, maybe in anybody's lifetime".

The Apollo 11 mission returned with 22kg of moon material in total, contributing to a total of 382kg collected across all six Apollo missions from 1969 to 1972. A tribute to the lives lost in various space explorations from the past was also widely shared online.

With that in mind, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin undertook rudimentary geological research at sites across the United States, including the Grand Canyon in Arizona, where portions of land were blasted to replicate the moon's cratered terrain.

Vice President Mike Pence confirmed Saturday the USA first will return to the moon, and then Mars, in upcoming space travel.

"To get to Mars, you have to land on the moon, they say".

He explained that those who had been controlling the spacecraft until then would have no role to play in those crucial moments. The orbiter, which has a mission life of a year, will take images of the lunar surface, and "sniff" the tenuous atmosphere.

The crew traveled 240,000 miles from the Earth to the moon in about 76 hours before Armstrong took his first steps on the moon.

The programme includes an unmanned mission around the Moon in 2020 and a manned mission that will also orbit the Moon two years later.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in a statement Saturday that the moon landing was a steppingstone to future space missions: "I have instructed the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) to send the next man and first woman to the Moon and to take the next giant leap - sending Americans to Mars". Morgan explained in a NASA interview that Apollo 11, and now his flight, represents "an accomplishment of the world and not one single country". According to NASA, during his visit, the Vice President would recognize the success of Apollo 11 and address progress in NASA's return to the Moon with the upcoming Artemis missions. At a hearing of the Senate Commerce Committee July 17, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said he wanted to bring in new leadership for the agency's human spaceflight programs, who would then examine the costs and schedules of SLS and Orion, before setting a new date for that mission. "The youngest geological actions on the moon, based on crater counts, probably were lava flows about 1.2 billion years ago". But Collins, attending the event, said he favored going directly to Mars.

When asked about the president's ambiguity on the subject Friday, Pence said it was an example of Mr. Trump's eagerness to get to Mars.

That speech came a little more than 24 hours after President Trump, in a somewhat chaotic media opportunity in the Oval Office marking the Apollo 11 anniversary, appeared willing to reconsider that goal.

Collins too is keen for crewed missions sooner rather than later, and has advocated for the USA to go "direct to Mars" rather than returning to the Moon first.
