Neil Alden Armstrong died on August 25th at the age of 82 and he was the first human being to went on Moon but unfortunately he is’t here between us.
Neil Armstrong was born on August 5, 1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio, to Stephen Koenig Armstrong and Viola Louise Engel.He was of Scottish and German descent, and had two younger siblings, June and Dean.
Stephen Armstrong worked as an auditor for the Ohio state government, and the family moved around the state repeatedly in the 15 years following Armstrong’s birth, living in 20 different towns.

Engine stop,” and Armstrong said, “Shutdown.”
The first words Armstrong intentionally spoke to Mission Control and the world from the lunar surface were, “Houston, Tranquility Base here.
