Neil Armstrong dies

August 25, 2012

 

Neil Armstrong, who was born on a farm outside of Wapakoneta, returned as a teen and graduated from Blume High School, made “one giant leap for mankind” with “one small step for a man” when he was the first person to walk on the moon in 1969.

Armstrong, who often said he found more excitement in landing the lunar module on the moon than actually taking a step, died today at the age of 82. Wapakoneta is considered the boyhood home of the famed astronaut, engineer and pilot.
