At 9:32 a.m. EDT, July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 launched from Florida, taking commander Neil Armstrong, lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin and command module pilot Michael Collins on a mission for the history books – a mission to become the first humans to land on another celestial body. Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the Moon, while Michael Collins remained aboard the command module in lunar orbit. This day became an unprecedented milestone for the humanity, the moment that will never be forgotten.
“Here now” men’s ring collection is meant to remind you of the present moment. The future is unforeseen and that one should not leave to chance future happenings, but rather one should do all one can today to make one’s own future better or as the ancient latin quote says: carpe diem.
Stars are some of the most distant things we’re able to see with our naked eyes. They can be used as symbols of this physical distance (a long journey or something that is physically unobtainable), as well as many extensions of that, such as emotional distance (something foreign and not easy empathized with, or understood) or conceptual distance (something that is entirely unlike something else or alien). Stars are commonly associated with magic. In modern culture, wizards are often seen with stars on their clothes, and the act of magic can be visually depicted with stars and starbursts.

The incomparable hardness of the diamonds makes this precious stone an appropriate symbol for durability and constancy; its clarity yields the notions of constancy, sincerity, and innocence. The diamond is light, life, the sun; it is an emblem of purity and perfection, of invincible spiritual power, and it is the stone of commitment, faithfulness, and promise between husband and wife. Symbol of light and brilliance; unconquerable; treasures, riches, intellectual knowledge.
The Apollo 11 Lunar Module “Eagle” was the first crewed vehicle to land on the Moon. It carried two astronauts, Commander Neil A. Armstrong and pilot Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr., the first men to walk on the Moon.

A crown is a traditional symbolic form of head adornment worn by a monarch or by a deity (as distinct from a hat), for whom the crown traditionally represents power, legitimacy, victory, triumph, honor, and glory, as well as immortality, righteousness, and resurrection. In addition to symbolizing the achievement of mind over body – the intangible triumph of the spirit – the crown can be seen as a representation of a halo, which in turn represents genius.
Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours and 39 minutes later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC; Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later. On photo: Aldrin’s bootprint; part of an experiment to test the properties of the lunar regolith
Noise is frequently described as ‘unwanted sound’. Within this context, environmental noise is generally present in some form in all areas of human, animal, or environmental activity. The effects in humans of exposure to environmental noise may vary from emotional to physiological and psychological.
Now it is time to take longer strides time for a great new American enterprise… I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.
-JFK’s speech in 1961

The “bullseye” is the only symbol universally found by archaeologists and anthropologists. Found at the entrances to old Celtic tombs in Ireland, a part of the symbolism of Egypt, Ur of the Chaldees, India, Tibet, China and Maya. It has been variously interpreted as a map of labyrinthine sepulchers, the sun, the secret of life and, even in past ages, an occult form of target.
July 21st 1969 marked the date we conquered the moon.
