The Moon - (FILE) -- Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin Aldrin stands near the leg of the lunar module on the Moon. Despite the fact that the backpacks and astronauts only weighed 1/6 on their 350 pound Earth weight, their center of gravity was shifted so they had to lean slightly forward to balance. Footprints are clearly visible in the foreground..Credit: NASA via CNP
