    A hero for the world – and beyond.

    I grew up admiring these men and their missions.
    They took us along to space and created dreams.

    Neil Armstrong is the figurehead of space exploration.

    One giant leap for mankind.”

    I was woken up “in the middle of the night” when I was 5. The television shots from the Moon hit the east coast around 10:30-11:00 pm. We watched it on our B/W television set in the living room.
