Armstrong's first step on the moon

Video of Neil Armstrong's first step on the moon on July 20, 1969, was broadcast around the world. Apollo 11's lunar camera recorded video in a format that was incompatible with commercial broadcast television. NASA engineers took a TV camera, aimed it a monitor of the incoming video and broadcast that version to the world.
