On July 21, 1969, the Day after Astronauts Stepped onto the Moon, What Did the Front Page of the New York Times Look Like?

 

I can’t help but hear, in the headline, an echo of the ancient Roman Imperium:

We came, we saw, we conquered.

    The NY Times city edition (not LATE city edition) headline reads, “MAN WALKS ON MOON” followed by the two-liner “ASTRONAUTS LAND ON A PLAIN AFTER STEERING PAST CRATER.” In central position below that are portrait-type photos of Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. Below the center fold is a photo of the control room at the Houston space center. The right-hand double-column article is entitled “Bleak, Rocky World Seen From Module.”
