New BBC interview with Michael Collins —
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that put humans on the Moon.

Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins has said that despite not walking on the Moon, he was "thrilled" with the seat he had.

As Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent time on the lunar surface, Collins orbited the Moon in the command module Columbia.

He was also in charge of the mission to bring the three men home to Earth.

"I would have preferred to walk on the Moon but that really seemed a trivial distinction at the time. I was very pleased with my responsibilities on the flight," Collins told BBC Hardtalk’s Stephen Sackur.

A top class man, it's wonderful to listen to him and he is so unassuming.

Fantastic. Let's hope we get more of this sort of thing as we approach the anniversary.

Thanks for posting.

Good thing it's online. I tried to watch it this morning on the 00:30 BST TV broadcast on BBC News and it was cancelled.

60 Minutes Australia release
This year marks the 50th anniversary of that remarkable feat of technology and daring. And while the moonwalkers, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, dominate our memories of the moon landing, there's a third astronaut who deserves his place in history.

Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 command module spacecraft in lunar orbit while his two colleagues collected moon rocks. In a rare interview he tells Sarah Abo if it wasn't for him, one of our greatest successes would have been a monumental failure.
