Eagle entered lunar orbit in 1969. On 20th July Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin entered into the Lunar Module and separated from the Command and Service Module, Five minutes into the descent burn, and 6,000 feet above the surface of the Moon, the guidance computer distracted the crew with the first of several unexpected program alarms. Their descent trajectory had them on course for the worst possible landing site, the middle of a boulder field. The only option was to switch to manual control, with limited fuel and no option of turning back, Armstrong has to try and land the spacecraft on the fly.
