Air Force pararescueman Lt. Clancy Hatleberg closes the Apollo 11 spacecraft hatch as astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin, Jr., await helicopter pickup from their life raft. They splashed down at 12:50 pm EDT July 24, 1969, 900 miles southwest of Hawaii after a successful lunar landing mission. The command module moved from Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. and was used by pararescuemen to train for both the Apollo and Skylab programs. (photo/NASA)
