Homage to Neil Armstrong

50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 Moon Landing

Fifty years ago on July 20th, the American astronaut Neil Armstrong
– b. August 5, 1930, Wapakoneta – d. August 25, 2012, Cincinnati –
was the first man to land on the Moon, along with his colleague Edwin Aldrin.

As he stepped out of the ship, he said with great emotion:

”That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.

The dream of Icarus came true: a new scientific era had just begun.
