Neil Armstrong

On 16 July 1969, astronaut and engineer Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the Moon. His words “That’s one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind” have become legend. In 2006, NASA honoured Neil as an Ambassador of Exploration, gifting him with a piece of moon rock he brought back from his mission.

Neil died in August 2012, at the age of 82.
