Wow!

Armstrong is notorious for not giving interviews or appearing in documentaries about the Apollo missions and the Space Program, as he prefers to keep the focus on NASA and the achievement, rather than his roll in it. Almost all footage and soundbites used are from the '60s. He could teach a course on humility, which all celebrities ought to be required to attend!

Both speeches are incredible.  Essential reading / listening.

"Is THIS what we'll bring into Space??"

Well if you think I'm bringing a badger with me when I move to the Triton colony, you've got another thing coming.
