NEIL ARMSTRONG , FIRST MAN ON MOON, HAS DIED

Neil Armstrong, who made the “giant leap for mankind” as the first human to set foot on the moon, died on Saturday 25th, August 2012. He was 82.

A quiet, private man, at heart an engineer and crack test pilot, Mr. Armstrong made history on July 20, 1969, as the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft on the mission that culminated the Soviet-American space race in the 1960s. 

Planting his feet on the lunar surface, he said, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”


“And when Neil stepped foot on the surface of the moon for the first time,” the president added, “he delivered a moment of human achievement that will never be forgotten.”

Charles F. Bolden Jr., the current NASA administrator, said, “As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own.”
