Wallpaper Description:
To the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Flight on the Moon.

Although the official NASA flight plan called for a crew rest period before extra-vehicular activity, Armstrong requested that the EVA be moved earlier in the evening, Houston time. Once Armstrong and Aldrin were ready to go outside, Eagle was depressurized, the hatch was opened and Armstrong made his way down the ladder first.

At the bottom of the ladder, Armstrong said "I'm going to step off the LEM now" (referring to the Apollo Lunar Module). He then turned and set his left boot on the surface at at 2:56 UTC July 21, 1969. Then spoke the famous words "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."
