“That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.”

—Neil Armstrong

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong made history. He became the first human to set foot on the moon. People around the world watched and listened as Neil slowly climbed down the ladder of the lunar lander. He then stepped on the moon's surface where he could look up and see Earth far above him. His words resonate today, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Armstrong took his picture of Buzz Aldrin who joined him on the moon. Pilot Michael Collins, who remained in orbit, was the third member of the historic Apollo 11 team.

Achievement. Pass It On!

His journey actually ENDED with the small step. The journey didn't begin on the moon.

Most people thought it was impossible to put a man on the moon, but since we humans are stubborn, we always find a way!

Neil Armstrong is a real inspiration! This story just proves that if you want something, go for it and you can get it!

Scott C. from New Castle, Indiana APRIL 19, 2009
Neil Armstrong is an interesting story by itself, since he has long been known for being very media shy. It is also indicative of his character that this famous photo was of Buzz Aldrin and not him. Truly great men usually do not to be known for themselves, but instead for their deeds.

Randel H. from USA FEBRUARY 22, 2008
Good advice, listen.

Stevzilla from Fort Worth, Texas USA OCTOBER 29, 2007
