Neil Armstrong’s 90th Birthday (August 5, 1930-August 25, 2012)

Astronaut Neil Armstrong became part of the collective memory as the first human to ever set foot on the moon. His proclamation „That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind“, is a well known quote all over the world.

Born in Ohio on August 5, 1930 Armstrong’s passion for aviation ignites at an early age. He loves to build model airplanes and acquires his first license to fly at the age of 16. After graduating from high school he enrols in college and studies aeronautical engineering. In 1949 he is drafted. Upon completing his pilot training in Florida he is deployed to the Korean War. Armstrong returns from the war with a number of military awards and decorations. He goes back to college and receives his B.A. in 1955. Subsequently he becomes a test pilot at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, which would become part of the newly founded NASA in 1958. In 1962 he is selected by the US astronaut program. Four years later he travels to space for the first time aboard Gemini 8. On this mission he successfully completes the first docking manoeuvre between two spacecraft in space. At the age of 38 he is offered the post of commander of Apollo 11. On July 21, 1969 he makes history when he, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins land on the moon. 

A year later he completes his Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Southern California and is subsequently appointed Deputy Associate Administrator for Aeronautics at NASA headquarters in Washington DC. He leaves NASA in 1971 and accepts a teaching position as a professor for Aerospace Engineering at the University of Cincinnati. Later he enters the world of business and has many engagements as an expert for space travel. He passes away on August 25,2012, following complications from bypass surgery.
