Neil Alden Armstrong

• Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) was an
  American astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university
  professor and United States Naval Aviator. He was the first person
  to walk on the Moon. Before becoming an astronaut, Armstrong was
  a United States Navy officer and had served in the Korean War.
  After the war, he served as a test pilot at the National Advisory
  Committee for Aeronautics High-Speed Flight Station, now known
  as the Dryden Flight Research Center, where he logged over 900
  flights. He graduated from Purdue University and the University of
  Southern California.

• A participant in the U.S. Air Force's Man In Space Soonest and X-20
  Dyna-Soar human spaceflight programs, Armstrong joined the
  NASA Astronaut Corps in 1962. His first spaceflight was the NASA
  Gemini 8 mission in 1966, for which he was the command
  pilot, becoming one of the first U.S. civilians in space. On this
  mission, he performed the first manned docking of two spacecraft
  with pilot David Scott.
Armstrong in 1969
• Armstrong's second and last spaceflight was as mission
  commander of the Apollo 11 moon landing in July 1969.
  On this mission, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended
  to the lunar surface and spent 2½ hours exploring, while
  Michael Collins remained in orbit in the Command
  Module. Armstrong was awarded the Presidential Medal
  of Freedom by President Richard Nixon along with
  Collins and Aldrin, the Congressional Space Medal of
  Honor by President Jimmy Carter in 1978, and the
  Congressional Gold Medal in 2009.

• On August 25, 2012, Armstrong died in
  Cincinnati, Ohio, at the age of 82 due to complications
  from blocked coronary arteries.

Quick bites about Neil Armstrong


•      Armstrong's interest in flight began in childhood: He earned his student
    pilot's certificate on his 16th birthday, before he got an automobile driver's
    license. "He never had a girl. He didn't need a car. All he had to do was get
    out to that airport," Armstrong's father was quoted as saying in the
    astronaut's biography, "First Man."
•      Armstrong's pulse was measured at 150 beats per minute as he guided
    the lunar lander to the moon's surface, NASA said. "I believe every human
    has a finite number of heartbeats," Armstrong once said. "I don't intend to
    waste any of mine."
•      Asked about his experience on the moon, he told CBS: "It's an interesting
    place to be. I recommend it."
•      A crater on the moon is named for Armstrong. It is located about 30 miles
    (50 kilometers) from the site of the landing.
•      In 2005 Armstrong was upset to learn that his barber had sold clippings
    of his hair to a collector for $3,000. The man who bought the hair refused to
    return it, saying he was adding it to his collection of locks from Abraham
    Lincoln, Napoleon, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein and others.
•      Although he was famously reticent, Armstrong once appeared in a TV
    commercial for Chrysler. He said he made the ad because of Chrysler's
    engineering history and his desire to help the company out of financial
    troubles.

The Apollo 11 Saturn space vehicle climbs toward orbit after liftoff from Pad 39A at 9:32am EDT, July 16, 1969.
     In 2 minutes 30 seconds of powered flight, the S-IC booster lifts the vehicle to an altitude of about 39
  miles, some 55 miles downrange. This photo was taken with a 70mm telescopic camera mounted in an Air
  Force EC-135N plane. Onboard are astronauts Neil A Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E Aldrin, Jr.

  • 2. Neil Alden Armstrong • Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) was an American astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university professor and United States Naval Aviator. He was the first person to walk on the Moon. Before becoming an astronaut, Armstrong was a United States Navy officer and had served in the Korean War. After the war, he served as a test pilot at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics High-Speed Flight Station, now known as the Dryden Flight Research Center, where he logged over 900 flights. He graduated from Purdue University and the University of Southern California. • A participant in the U.S. Air Force's Man In Space Soonest and X-20 Dyna-Soar human spaceflight programs, Armstrong joined the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1962. His first spaceflight was the NASA Gemini 8 mission in 1966, for which he was the command pilot, becoming one of the first U.S. civilians in space. On this mission, he performed the first manned docking of two spacecraft with pilot David Scott.

On this mission, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended to the lunar surface and spent 2½ hours exploring, while Michael Collins remained in orbit in the Command Module. Armstrong was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Richard Nixon along with Collins and Aldrin, the Congressional Space Medal of Honor by President Jimmy Carter in 1978, and the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009. • On August 25, 2012, Armstrong died in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the age of 82 due to complications from blocked coronary arteries.

  • 6. Quick bites about Neil Armstrong • Armstrong's interest in flight began in childhood: He earned his student pilot's certificate on his 16th birthday, before he got an automobile driver's license. "He never had a girl. He didn't need a car. All he had to do was get out to that airport," Armstrong's father was quoted as saying in the astronaut's biography, "First Man." • Armstrong's pulse was measured at 150 beats per minute as he guided the lunar lander to the moon's surface, NASA said. "I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats," Armstrong once said. "I don't intend to waste any of mine." • Asked about his experience on the moon, he told CBS: "It's an interesting place to be. I recommend it." • A crater on the moon is named for Armstrong. It is located about 30 miles (50 kilometers) from the site of the landing. • In 2005 Armstrong was upset to learn that his barber had sold clippings of his hair to a collector for $3,000. The man who bought the hair refused to return it, saying he was adding it to his collection of locks from Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein and others. • Although he was famously reticent, Armstrong once appeared in a TV commercial for Chrysler. He said he made the ad because of Chrysler's engineering history and his desire to help the company out of financial troubles.
