Aldrin in the 'Eagle'

This interior view of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module "Eagle" shows astronaut Edwin E. (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr., lunar module pilot, during the lunar landing mission. This picture was taken by astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, the mission's commander. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in "Eagle" to explore the moon's Sea of Tranquility, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Module "Columbia" in lunar orbit.
