Apollo 11 Lunar Module

Buzz Aldrin gets equipment out of the SEQ bay of Eagle, the Apollo 11 Lunar module (LM). The LM was the lander portion of the Apollo spacecraft built for the Apollo program by Grumman to achieve the transit from cislunar orbit to the surface and back. After the Apollo 11 astronauts returned from the moon, Eagle was left in lunar orbit and eventually crashed on the surface of the moon.
