  • English: Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin's bootprint. Aldrin photographed this bootprint about an hour into their Lunar Extra-vehicular activity on July 20, 1969 as part of investigations into the soil mechanics of the lunar surface. This photo shows the undisturbed patch of ground before he placed his boot there.

Das Foto entstand aus wissenschaftlichen Zwecken um die Bodenmechanik der Mondoberfläche zu untersuchen. Es wurde später zum Synonym für die Eroberung des Weltraums durch den Menschen.
