This week marks the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, and Google celebrated the occasion by creating a massive 1.4 square mile portrait of Apollo software developer Margaret Hamilton using more than 107,000 mirrors from the Ivanpah Solar Facility in the Mojave Desert.

The July 20, 2019 Google Doodle replaces the two letter 'O's with an astronaut's spherical helmet and the Earth, in a celebratory image depicting the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

"50 years ago I went on an adventure, which took Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the surface of the moon for the first time in history", Collins says in the video. Meanwhile, Michael Collins- Command module pilot, flew the spaceship Columbia alone in the lunar orbit; Armstrong and Aldrin were on the Moon's surface for roughly 22 hours before they were lifted off to rejoin Columbia.

Like almost everything else this weekend, Google's latest homepage Doodle is here to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, with an adorable animated video commemorating the historic occasion. In the behind-the-scenes video of the Google Doodle's creation, artists and historians walk through the process of designing and scripting the animation.

All of the fuss is properly deserved: The legacy of that mission - and all of the Apollo missions - is vast. Newly unearthed documents show that the moon landing could have turned deadly on the astronauts' arrival to Earth.
