NASA Good Day

Astronaut Neil Armstrong, who became the first to walk on the moon as commander of Apollo 11, has died. He was 82 years old.

On July 20, 1969, half a billion people (a sixth of the world’s population at the time) watched a ghostly black-and-white television image as Armstrong backed down the ladder of the lunar landing ship Eagle, planted his left foot on the moon’s surface, and said, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

RIP Neil Armstrong.
