Phone call from the Moon

7/20/1969

As this page from President Richard Nixon’s daily diary shows, the evening of July 20, 1969, had been busy. Nixon’s last phone call took place at 11:45 P.M. It was an “interplanetary conversation” with astronauts Neil Armstrong and “Buzz” Aldrin. During the conversation Armstrong said: “It’s a great honor and privilege for us to be here representing not only the United States but men of peace of all nations.”
