If you haven’t heard already, apparently Neil Armstrong lied about having not preplanned the phrase “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil had always insisted that he came up with the phrase after he landed on the moon. Neil’s brother however, is telling a different story now that Neil is dead.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Neil Armstrong was a quiet, self-described nerdy engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon. The modest man, who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter-million miles away, died Saturday. He was 82.
