Puma unveiled a sneaker that was developed in collaboration with NASA and timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon.
In total, two models were created, which are included in the Space Explorer set. Cell Alien is executed in dark colors and decorated with images of stars and galaxies. The RS-X model is light and reminiscent of the spacesuits of the astronauts who landed on the moon, plus it is decorated with inserts in the colors of the NASA logo. The shoes are made with the latest materials. Both models will go on sale on July 20, the day the Apollo 11 crew landed on the moon.
The Apollo 11 lunar module reached the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, at 20:17:39 UTC. The first ever exit to the lunar surface was made, which lasted 2 hours 31 minutes 40 seconds. The very first person to walk on the moon was Neil Armstrong. Then, 15 minutes behind, Buzz Aldrin followed. The third member of the mission crew, Michael Collins, remained in orbit around the moon, waiting for the return of his partners.
In total, the module spent 21 hours 36 minutes and 21 seconds on the surface of the Moon. The astronauts delivered various research instruments to the Earth's satellite and collected soil samples. The importance of this event for the development of science and humanity as a whole can hardly be overestimated. No wonder it gets so much attention. Moreover, not only from NASA, but also from various companies, like Puma. So, Lego presented a constructor that allows you to assemble a model of Apollo 11, and OMEGA presented a commemorative watch.
