On July 20, 1969, Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon's surface. Civilian Neil Alden Armstrong (1930-2012) had entered the U.S. space program as a senior NASA research pilot. A fan of aviation from the age of nine, Armstrong had his pilot's license by the age of 16, and, after studying aeronautical engineering at Purdue for two years, went to Pensacola, Florida for Navy flight training. Serving in Korea at the age of 21, Armstrong flew 78 combat missions and won three Air Medals. For the seven years prior to his selection by NASA, Armstrong was a civilian pilot at Edwards Air Force Base, testing experimental aircraft and working as an engineer. A veteran of Gemini 8, Armstrong thrilled the world when he stepped off the ladder of the Lunar Excursion Module Eagle and spoke the first words heard from the surface of the Moon: "That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind."Fine condition. Accompanied by PSA/DNA LOA.
