NASA was looking for skilled pilots to join their space crew and Neil sent in an application. He had the skills because he had been a pilot in the Navy.
The Road of Trials
Neil did not refuse the call, he was in the navy which inspired him to become an astronaut. He had passion for outerspace and flights since he was a little kid.
He got accepted into the NASA space program and also served as a space pilot and an engineer
Armstrong had to go through alot of training before he could go into space. Also, when serving as commanding pilot on Gemini 8, a rocket thruster malfunctioned and sent the spacecraft into an uncontrolled spin and forced them to seperate from the Agena, and crash into the Pacific Ocean
His team reached the moon on July 20, 1969 as Buzz and Neil took pictures and samples. He was the first man to step on the moon, " This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
The Eagle ( landing module) returned to The Colombia (main ship) and they returned to Earth. They landed in the Pacific Ocean, and was picked up by the navy.
