Off the Kona coffee coast in 1969

First men on the moon arriving off the Kona coast in Hawaii on July 24, 1969. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin, Jr., await helicopter pickup from their life raft. Everyone wears a biohazard suit because scientists were afraid we could catch the 'moon-flu' or something like that. Courtesy: NASA
