Apollo 11 was powered by a Saturn V rocket which stood 364 feet (101.5 meters) tall. The Washington Monument is 555′ tall. The Eiffel Tower is 1,063 feet high.

The tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa,  in Dubai, United Arab Emirates with a total height of 829.8 m (2,722 ft). None of them can fly like the Saturn Five Rocket that lifted Apollo 11 up to the moon 240,250 miles away and back, although only the command module came back. The moon is moving at 2,300 miles an hour.

The Saturn V rocket assembly weighed 525,500 pounds (239,725 kg), empty; and 6,100,000 pounds (2,766,913 kg), loaded. Apollo’s Saturn V’s five boosters generated a total of 7.5 million pounds of thrust at liftoff.

The astounding planning and coordination among scientist, engineers and a workforce totaling 350,000 people. Americans did that. A total of 12 Americans have walked on the moon.
