Moon Landing 50th Anniversary: Google Friday denoted the 50th commemoration of Nasa's Apollo 11 mission with a video doodle. With portrayal by space explorer Michael Collins, the video follows the noteworthy occasions that hinted at man's first Moon landing. "Neil, Buzz and I felt the heaviness of the world on our shoulders," Collins says.

"The first occasion when we saw the Moon very close, it was a glorious scene. It was gigantic," Collins says in the video. "The sun was coming around it, falling and making a brilliant radiance, and filled our whole window. As great as the view was of this alien Moon seen very close, it was nothing contrasted with seeing the minor Earth. The Earth was the main appear."

Armstrong and Aldrin arrived on the Moon on a vehicle called the "Sea of Tranquility" on July 20, 1969. Their voyage was ridden with intricacies as they at first lost contact with Earth, experienced new error codes on their locally available computer and ran shy of fuel. On July 20, 50 years back, Armstrong turned into the first man to venture on the Moon as he stated: “That’s one small step for man, but one giant leap for mankind.”
