Who doesn’t love Easter eggs? There’s the plastic, multicolored eggs. Candy eggs. Dyed eggs. The ones filled with candy, or money or both. Great times!

Man on the moon: Apollo 11 celebrates 40 years [Infographic]

To commemorate the landmark event, I decided to do a News Illustrated focusing on the entire mission. My goal was to map out every step (no pun intended) from launch to splashdown. I was even fortunate to find timestamps to help tell the chronology, and used as many historical photos as possible to further tell the story. This is just one of those subjects that demand it tell its own story.
