This is one quick breakout to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon and you dipping your toes into the world of Digital Breakouts. You have 10 minutes to solve the Breakout or the moon could turn into one solid chunk of Blue Cheese.

On July 16, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins started their historic trip to the Moon. They lifted off from Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Four days later, while Michael Collins orbited the Moon in the command module, Armstrong and Aldrin landed Apollo 11’s lunar module, on the moon. The lunar module was called the Eagle.

Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the lunar surface.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Google asked for help from someone who was there. Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins narrates to Google Doodle.

“That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” Words made famous by astronaut Neil Armstrong as he made the first human footprints on the Moon.

The landing was watched on television by an estimated 600 million people all around
