Godspeed Neil Armstrong

We Loved the Moon more after 1969.

"A lot of people couldn't figure out Armstrong," the author Tom Wolfe wrote in his novelization of
the space race, The Right Stuff. Maybe that was because there was nothing to figure out, he was exactly who he said he was, a pilot and an engineer.

A symbol of mankind’s giant leap, this photo
of man’s small step—astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s—shows
 one of the first human prints left on the surface of the moon.
Aldrin took this photo of his own footprint during NASA’s 1969 Apollo 11 mission.
