Mare Tranquillitatis - Lunar Surface
One giant leap. This isn't it but it is certainly representative. The "giant leap" of the famous quote, "That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind," was made by Apollo 11 mission commander Neil Armstrong, the first man to step on the moon. This boot print was made by Lunar Module pilot Buzz Aldrin. (photo courtesy of NASA)
