Who Was Neil Armstrong?

Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin


The year was 1969. On July 16, a rocket launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA. It was a Saturn V (Saturn Five) rocket, and sitting inside the command module at the tip of the rocket were three men. They were Michael Collins, Edwin Aldrin ("Buzz" for short), and the command pilot Neil Armstrong.
