50 Years Since Splashdown
50 years ago, the Apollo 11 astronauts returned to Earth. Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong came home in the Command Module Columbia. Slowed down by 3 parachutes, they splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, and helicopters from the USS Hornet picked them up. They then spent 3 weeks in quarantine, in case of hazardous moon germs!
