On July 21th 2009, the world celebrates an important event : 40 years have passed since the first man walked on the Moon. His name was Neil Armstrong.
At 02:39 UTC on Monday July 21 (10:39pm EDT, Sunday July 20), 1969, Armstrong opened the hatch, and at 02:51 UTC began his descent to the Moon's surface.
In the same mission were Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins.
To celebrate this important event, The Art Inquirer presents its readers with a movies' classic : Le Voyage dans la Lune (1902), by Georges Méliès.
