Michael Collins became the forgotten astronaut of Apollo 11, he never set foot on the moon. As Armstrong and Aldrin descended to the lunar surface in the Eagle lander, Collins orbited around the moon in the command module of Apollo 11, called Columbia. For a day he circled, waiting for his comrades to lift off again. As he passed behind the dark side of the moon, his communication with Earth was totally cut off. It was the secret terror that gripped astronaut Michael Collins - the mission's third and largely forgotten crewman - throughout the Apollo 11 project 40 years ago.
His part of the mission was one of "greater profundity ... he has experienced an aloneness unknown to man before"...
