Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

RIP Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon, has died at the age of 82 from complications following a heart surgery several weeks ago. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969. He’ll always be remembered for his first words after touching the lunar surface, broadcast live to a half billion people, then one-sixth of the world’s population: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Here, Armstrong talks with the BBC in 1970 about the Apollo expedition after returning to Terra Firma.
