A11 vs Football

by sbrothier (via)
On July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon. He didn’t moonwalk alone – ‘Buzz’ Aldrin joined him on the surface – and he didn’t walk far. After travelling hundreds of thousands of kilometers, the landing crew of the Apollo 11 lunar mission barely covered an area the size of a football pitch. Many thanks to John Mark Boling for sending in this extremely cool map, found at this page of the NASA history division website.
