Historic contemporary teletype recounting the historic first moonwalk of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on July 21, 1969, measuring approximately 8.5 x 134, likely printed by a news agency; the teletype provides a mixture of prepared press bulletins, transcripts between Houston ground control and crewmen Armstrong and Aldrin, and details about the first hours the astronauts spent on the moon. In part: "Two American spacemen stood…walked…hopped and worked on the surface of the moon tonight…and the world watched the climax of centuries of dreams and ambitions. Astronauts [sic] Neil Armstrong is the first man to set a foot on an alien world. He put his left foot…in a space boot six inches wide and 13 inches long…onto the moon 20 seconds after 10:56 P-M (EDT). Just about 20 minutes later Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin joined him. As he moved his foot, Armstrong announced: 'That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.' Aldrin's first words on the lunar surface were 'Magnificent desolation.'" In very good to fine condition, with toning, staining, tears, and paper loss to the leading edge; the remainder of the teletype remains fine.
