Neil Armstrong: First Man on the Moon

Neil Alden Armstrong was born August 5, 1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio. Young Armstrong enjoyed his first plane ride just prior to his 6th birthday. From a young age he was interested in aviation and building model planes. When he was 15 he began to save for flying lessons and actually began to take them a year later. During his teen years, Armstrong was quite active in the Boy Scouts and even earned the Eagle Scout rank. After attending Blume High School he started college at Purdue University. He eventually obtained a degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California. He attended college under the Holloway Plan, under which he agreed to three years of service in the United States Navy in between four years of college study. In the Navy, Armstrong served as an aviator and saw action in Korea. After Korea he became a test pilot at the NACA High-Speed Flight Station at Edwards Air Force Base. In 1962 he applied to become an astronaut and was accepted in September. He spent the next two years in basic training. In 1965 it was announced that he would fly on the Gemini 8 mission. After the Apollo I fire, Armstrong was selected for the first lunar mission along with Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin. On July 20, 1969 Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the moon. His words to Mission Control were “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” Armstrong retired from NASA in 1971.
