We all know that Neil Armstrong is the first person to walk on the moon. He would have been 89 years old today.
NASA honored the astronaut with a tweet and video remembering the “engineer,” “pilot,” “teacher” and “American hero.”
After the mission, humans, spacecraft, and samples had to undergo quarantine for 21 days to avoid infecting the Earth with any lunar micro-organisms.
On that birthday, workers in the Lunar Receiving Laboratory where he was quarantined made him a cake and threw a surprise party.
Armstrong actively blew out the candles and cut up slices of cake for everyone.
The wives of the astronauts watched from the other side of the glass, and he pretended to hand them cake through the partition.
Armstrong died at age 82 after complications from cardiovascular surgery.
Let us not forget this man who takes the first leap of faith of humanity towards the moon. Neil Armstrong is truly an inspiration to dares to dream that “impossible” is just a word.
Share this with your friends and celebrates his birthday and his legacy.
