The Doodle video is in the voice of Command Module Pilot Michael Collins who remained aboard the command module in lunar orbit while Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on Moon.
At NASA's invitation, Collins marked the precise moment — 9:32 a.m. on July 16, 1969 — that the Saturn V rocket blasted off.
'That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.'
