Rocket Ship celebrates 20 July 1969

Special commissioned portrait by Rocket Ship of an iconic moment 46 years ago when astronauts from the Apollo 11 space mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, set foot on the Moon. This moment is captured here by our artist and is drawn from the many photographs taken by the two astronauts as they spent those precious few hours on the Moon collecting rocks and setting up experiments. Since that historic date on 20 July 1969 space exploration has continued (although plans to establish a Moon colony did not come to fruition) and Rocket Ship is the latest in our endeavours as a species to push the frontiers and make space for everyone.

Celebrating 1969 when the first people from Planet Earth set foot on the Moon.
