Here men from the planet earth first set foot upon the moon July 1969, A.D. We came in peace for all mankind.

Apollo 11 plaque inscription.

This lunar plaque, attached to the ladder on the descent stage of Apollo 11, carries the signatures of President Richard M. Nixon and Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr. 

“We came in peace for all mankind,” derives from the 1958 National Aeronautics and Space Act’s “declaration of policy and purpose.”
