The Moon Landing

Did you know Motorola radios allowed Neil Armstrong to send his iconic words back to the Earth? "It's one small step for a man. One giant leap for mankind", he said, as he stepped out of the Apollo 11 spaceship. 

Motorola made both radio and video transmissions possible on July 20th, 1969. Over 500 million people watched this great accomplishment, becoming the most watched live event of all-time. Fun fact: Motorola spent 11 years working on the radio technology that would transmit these audios and visuals. 

NASA relied on Motorola's radio technology for the following decades and for most of its missions.

We also made our own tribute video to the Apollo 11 mission and to Motorola's contributions to this milestone for humanity.
