Everyone knows Neil Armstrong was the first to set foot on the moon. But this modest and unassuming man was determined to stay out of the spotlight, so the rare combination of talent, luck, and experience that led to his successful command of Apollo 11 is not widely known. Now, for the first time, NOVA presents an intimate portrait through interviews with Armstrong's family and friends, many of whom have never spoken publicly before. Seen through the eyes of those who were close to him, the film explores the man behind the myth, and also reveals his unsung achievements as a Navy combat veteran and pioneer of high speed flight. In its groundbreaking exploration of this quietly effective man, NOVA explores his achievements following Apollo, which included his leading role in the inquiry into the Challenger disaster and efforts to encourage young people to share his lifelong passion for flight. First Man on the Moon is an inspiring story of heroic risk-taking and humble dedication to advancing humanity's adventure in space. watch

Astronaut Neil Armstrong Dies at 82

Neil Armstrong has passed away at the age of 82.

The former astronaut died Saturday after complications with heart surgery, The New York Times reports.

Armstrong turned into an international hero when he commanded the Apollo 11 and became first person to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969. The three hours Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin spent on the moon that day signaled the end of the 12-year Cold War space race against the Soviet Union. His first words upon setting foot on the moon's surface, "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind," have since become immortalized and mark one of the greatest moments in scientific and American history. read more
