Apollo 11 was the first ever success in traveling to the Moon, landing on the Moon, and reentering safely to Earth.

On February 20, 1962, astronaut John Glenn orbited the Earth three times and safely landed in the Atlantic Ocean. After this accomplishment, the U.S. was now equal in space exploration to the Soviet Union. His actions and dedication to the space program eventually contributed to landing a man on the moon in 1969.
