One Giant Step for Caterpillar: Moon Landing 1969 – Sharing #caterpillar #Videos and #products

On July 20, 1969 at roughly 10PM (CST), the world collectively held its breath watching the crew of Apollo 11 successfully land on the moon. As billions tuned in to watch the historic events unfold over the eight-day mission, Caterpillar was more than just another viewer.

Communications between the Apollo crew and all NASA tracking stations around the world was provided by an 18-foot tracking antenna in North Carolina powered by ten Cat diesel gen sets.
