who coined the word “That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind" has died today after a complication due to a recent heart surgery. The astronaut who commandeered the Apollo 11 in July 20, 1969 and successfully landed it in the Moon was 82.
Born Neil Alden Armstrong, he is 38 when he made the record of being the first man in the moon and his epic moonwalk and line became so famous that it was one of the most popular quotes in the English language of to date. He set foot in the moon with fellow astronauts Michael Collins and Edwin Aldrin.
Armstrong has been living a quiet life with wife Carol in the area of Cincinnati and he has always been in reclusion. He was even asked to run for office after his Apollo 11 journey which he decline. According to his buddy Glenn (fellow astronaut), Armstrong was a very private person and a quiet one yet very humble and proud to serve his people.
Armstrong would be remembered as the first man who made the first footprints in the moon and who says it is an interesting place to be and that he recommends it (CBS interview of 2005).
