The landing was an enormous diplomatic and technological Cold War-era achievement for the USA, which was bested by the Soviet Union in putting the first human and satellite in space.

Aldrin later got a standing ovation during a speech by Pence.

Just before Aldrin made his remarks, Trump praised the space program, vowing that it would be "going a lot further now", not only back to the moon but to Mars.

Armstrong died in 2012, leaving Aldrin, 89, and command module pilot Michael Collins, 88, to mark the golden anniversary.

The exhibit commemorates the historic landing by American astronauts on the moon 50 years earlier, on July 20, 1969.

"We are bringing the glamour back" to the space program, Trump said Friday, at the event where he was joined by First Lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

"When we're in the business of foreign policy, the technology that goes into a foreign policy, the use of that technology, how it manifests itself and how we treat other countries, I think it's important we try not to be, I don't mind being the leader, but not the dominant leader and I think we ought to bend over backwards to have a unified, worldwide approach to the things we are trying to do in space", Collins said. According to CBS News, this time, the goal is to pursue long-term space exploration rather than the singular objective of landing on the moon.

Elsewhere in NY, organizers moved a moon-landing party from Times Square into a hotel because of a heat wave. "Good grief! It's still fantastic, the No. 1 feat of the 20th century, if not all of modern history, that first time there".

Aldrin, the second person to walk on the moon, tweeted on Saturday: "Today, America put the big question to rest: We got there first".
