Neil A. Armstrong

Author seasparrow 29/08/12 - 12:58
Neil A. Armstrong was born Aug. 5, 1930, in Wapakoneta, Ohio.

He earned an aeronautical engineering degree from Purdue University
and a master's in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern

He was a naval aviator from 1949 to 1952.
During the Korean War he flew 78 combat missions.

In 1955 he joined the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics
(NACA), NASA's predecessor, as a research pilot at Lewis Laboratory
in Cleveland.

Armstrong later transferred to NACA's High Speed Flight Research
Station at Edwards AFB, Calif. As project pilot, he was in the forefront
of the development of many high-speed aircraft, including the X-15,
which flew at 4,000 mph.

He flew more than 200 aircraft models.
They included jet and rocket-powered planes, helicopters and gliders.

Armstrong was selected as an astronaut in 1962.

His first space flight was Gemini 8, which he commanded.
He was the first civilian to fly a U.S. spacecraft. With fellow astronaut
David R. Scott, Armstrong performed the first docking in space,
with an Agena target satellite.

Less than an hour later their spacecraft began an unplanned rolling
motion. After undocking, it increased to one revolution per second. One
of the Gemini's 16 thrusters had stuck open because of an electrical short circuit.

Armstrong used re-entry thrusters to control
the capsule, and after a 30-minute struggle, it was stabilized.

Apollo 11 lifted off on July 16, 1969, with Armstrong, Aldrin
and Mike Collins aboard. Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command
module while Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the lunar module
they had named Eagle to their historic landing on the moon's surface.

"Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed,
" Armstrong said, telling a tense and waiting Earth that men had finally reached the lunar surface.
