One Small Step

about

This track was written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission which landed humans onto another world for the first time ever.

As Neil Armstrong said when he stepped onto the lunar surface, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

The name "Orbit Over Luna" is derived from my fascination with this particular time of lunar exploration, so I thought it appropriate to write a track about this specific time.

The photo was taken by Michael Collins from the Apollo 11 Columbia while rendezvousing with the Lunar Module on July 21, 1969 after it's lunar excursion.
