Fellow astronauts who joined him on the Apollo 11 journey to the moon, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, were at the service.

Hundreds of millions of people watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon on 21 July 1969 and describe it as: "One small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."

The line became one of the most famous quotes of the 20th century.
