On December 27, 2019, Buzz Aldrin, one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, published the famous photo of himself standing on the lunar soil, saying:
Whenever I gaze up at the moon, I feel like I’m on a time machine. I am back to that precious pinpoint of time, standing on the foreboding – yet beautiful – Sea of Tranquility. I could see our shining blue planet Earth poised in the darkness of space.
