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 miles, the landing crew of the Apollo 11 lunar mission barely covered an area the size of a soccer pitch. If soccer is too alien for your liking, another map overlays the ground covered by the Apollo 11 landing team on a baseball diamond…

Many thanks to John Mark Boling for sending in these maps, found at this page of the NASA history division website.
