Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - This weekend marks the 45th anniversary of the iconic Apollo 11 mission, which was the first time humans landed on the moon and safely returned to earth.

That was also the first time a "space selfie" was ever taken. It happened before the internet existed, let alone social media.

NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin snapped the first space selfie.
