Signed by Armstrong at the lower right of his photograph. The article begins: "At 10.56 on July 20, 1969, the moment came that Man had awaited for centuries. 'That's one small step for man, a giant leap for mankind,' said Neil Alden Armstrong as he became the first man to step on to another celestial body…." Entire section contains biographies of the Apollo 11 astronauts, photos from the Moon and background material on the flight. 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." Frayed and worn edges. Toned. Lightly stained at left margin. Mid-horizontal fold. Stray orange mark at lower right margin. Edges worn with tears throughout.
