NEIL ARMSTRONG
NASA Astronaut
Group 2 (1962)

On 20 July 1969, Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong gently but firmly placed his booted left foot onto the surface of the moon proclaiming “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” and his name in the pages of human history as the first person to step on the moon. With his LM Pilot Buzz Aldrin, Armstrong spent about two hours on the lunar surface collecting samples, deployed experiments and equipment and speaking with US President Richard M., Nixon by radio-phone whilst most of the civilised world watched and listened to their exploits. In lunar orbit Mike Collins remained on station in the CSM making observation and photographing potential future landing sites.
