(August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) Neil Armstrong was an American astronaut and the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot, and university professor. Before becoming an astronaut, Armstrong was an officer in the U.S. Navy and served in the Korean War. The whole of the world experienced his amazing speech ‘one small step for man but one small step for mankind,’ and breathed a sigh of relief when his space shuttle landed. This adventurous man has inspired many people and is definitely worthy of being a house mascot leading Armstrong house to victory!
