Moon landing

A moon landing is the arrival of a spacecraft on the surface of a planet's natural satellite, and in this case, refers specifically to landings on the lunar surface of Earth's Moon. This includes both manned and unmanned (robotic) missions. The first human-made object to reach the surface of the Moon was the Soviet Union's Luna 2 mission on September 13, 1959. The United States's Apollo 11 mission was the first manned spacecraft to land on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
