Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin participated in the first moon landing.

Astronaut Michael Collins, the pilot of the Apollo 11 command module, died at the age of 90 written by NASA website.

Collins had cancer, and had been suffering from the disease for a long time. The family said that they spent their last days at peace with loved ones.

Collins participated in the first moon landing as a pilot for Apollo 11, and the Gemini 10 mission in 1966 with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. During spaceflight, Collins was tasked with collecting a lunar ferry flying from the surface of the moon on board the command module. To commemorate the flight, a 2.4-kilometer-long crater near the landing site bears the name Collins, as well as the names of the three astronauts in the form of an abbreviation, a known hitherto unknown mineral on Earth, armalcolite.

Michael Collins ended his career in January 1970. At that time, he became the US State Department’s chief press officer in the Nixon administration. He later became director of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of Aviation and Space, which he ran and founded until 1978. In 1980, he tried his hand in business, becoming vice president of LTV Aerospace, and then founding his own consulting firm.
