#8.2 – The Eagle

[Only 60 seconds’ worth of fuel left for the landing.]
Duke: Sixty seconds.
Aldrin: 40 feet, down 2 _. Picking up some dust.
[Armstrong would later report, “This blowing dust became increasingly thicker. It was very much like landing in a fast-moving ground fog.”]
Aldrin: Contact light.
[Three 10-foot-long probes attached to the Eagle’s footpads touched the moon’s surface.]
Armstrong: Shut down.
Aldrin: Okay. Engine stop.
Armstrong: Engine arm is off.
Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.
