"The Eagle Has Landed" Neil Alden Armstrong, born in Wapakoneta, Ohio on August 5 1930, was the first man to step foot on the moon.

The other astronauts accompanying Armstrong were Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, the 39-year-old Gemini veteran with a doctorate from M.I.T, and Michael Collins, a 39-year-old air force lieutenant colonel.
