Edwin Aldrin At Work on the Moon

At Work on the Moon

Edwin Aldrin inspects the footpad of the Lunar Module "Eagle" after it landed gently on the Moon's Sea of Tranquility on July 20, 1969, at 4:17 p.m EDT.  The footpad sank into the soil only about two inches.  In the weak lunar gravity, the astronauts weighed only one-sixth of their weight on Earth.
