Neil Armstrong's iconic "one small step for man" radio transmission, reimagined by Simon Woods.

"The different voices, all saying the quote "I'm stepping off the LEM, one step", etc in different languages, represents the different backgrounds of the men and women, engineers, scientists and technicians, who worked to put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon. According some estimates there were as many as 400,000 people who worked on the project."

"It also represents the achievement for all the people of the world.

"On the technical side - the voices are from Google Translate, the later lead line was generated by dropping the audio file of Neil Armstrong into a MIDI track and altering the notes to fit.

"The white noise is taken from the noise between Neil’s comments and altered."
