NIXON, Richard M. Photograph signed ("Richard Nixon") as President, ALSO SIGNED BY APOLLO 11 ASTRONAUTS Neil Armstrong ("Neil Armstrong") and Edwin Aldrin ("Buzz Aldrin"), an official NASA photograph taken aboard the U.S.S. Hornet [24 July 1969], n.p., [1969]. 8 x 10 inches, NASA stamp in upper left corner, in fine condition. A HOMECOMING FOR APOLLO 11, NIXON GREETS THE ASTRONAUTS: A FINE SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH On July 24, 1969, the Apollo 11 module returned to earth after an eight day mission to the moon. Mission Commander Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin safely splashed down in the Pacific Ocean where they awaited recovery by the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Hornet . On board the Hornet , President Richard Nixon anticipated the arrival of the heroic men who had been the first to walk upon the moon. The photograph depicts Nixon greeting the astronauts who have been confined in a quarantine module. In his Memoir, Men from Earth , Aldrin remembered the event: "Neil, Mike, and I dressed in blue flying suits and went to the window, where President Nixon officially welcomed us back. Nixon had a reputation for being cold and calculating, but on this morning in the western Pacific, he actually danced a little jig when he saw us. I was beginning to understand how historic our flight had been."
