Also, Neil was ridiculously organized. Here’s a selection (yeah, there were easily 50-60 in the exhibit and that was just a selection) from his folders. A few of my favorites:

  • “First Flights”
  • “Game Rules – Sports” (I swear)
  • “Buzz”
  • “Moon” and “Mars” each had their own
  • “Hansen” (the author of his bio)
  • “Friends”
  • “Purdue”
  • “Astro mail”
  • “Golf” I swear you guys he had FOUR golf folders WHAT WAS IN THEM
  • And of course, the ultimate old man folder, “computer stuff”

“Friends” ❤️

I’m amused that Buzz gets his own folder – pointedly separate from the “Friends” folder. 😂

Happy birthday Neil Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012), pictured here celebrating his 39th birthday shortly after becoming the first human to walk on the moon during Apollo 11.

“As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own… Neil carried himself with a grace and humility that was an example to us all. When President Kennedy challenged the nation to send a human to the Moon, Neil Armstrong accepted without reservation. As we enter this next era of space exploration, we do so standing on the shoulders of Neil Armstrong.” -NASA Administrator Charles Bolden

Neil Armstrong with his daughter “Muffie”, 1959-1962

“When Karen was born, he was just a different man… [Her death] was a terrible time. I thought his heart would break. Somehow he felt responsible for her death, not in a physical way, but in terms of ‘Is there some gene in my body that made the difference?’ When he can’t control something, that’s when you see the real person. I thought his heart would break.” -Jane Hoffman, Neil’s sister

“Karen was a precious thing. She developed a tumor in her brain, and we couldn’t save her.” -Janet Armstrong

“The death of Karen really hurt him. It was the only time that I had ever seen him really, really hurt. Couldn’t talk about it.” -Dean Armstrong, Neil’s brother

“I remember Neil bringing Karen over without saying anything, just a visit on a Saturday. They wanted to see our new baby. So I got her out of the bassinet and put her on the bed, and Neil carried Karen over so she could touch her and kind of hold her. Karen was a valiant little girl… I felt that Neil came to me because he wanted somehow to encourage Karen to hold on to a hope, just a wild hope, like parents do. You could see that he loved his little girl very deeply.” -Grace Walker, wife of pilot Joe Walker and Armstrong family friend

That’s okay I was trying to SOB MY EYES OUT TONIGHT
