Part of the crew with Armstrong and Aldrin, I have always found Collins' role in Apollo 11 fascinating. Hard to imagine a Moon voyage in general, but to be circling it by oneself while the rest of the crew was on the lunar surface, just amazing.

He did his job.

This is a photo taken by Michael Collins, of everyone alive but Michael Collins. When he was on the orbital pass behind the moon, he was the most alone any human being had ever been.
