This gave Armstrong the access to a lot of advanced prototype aircrafts. That was until he decided to become an astronaut. It was because of this experience in the Navy that gave Neil the opportunity to join NASA, when he volunteered for NASA Astronaut Corp. Armstrong was on to NASA missions to space as a NASA astronaut. He was on Gemini 8 and Apollo 11. The latter was his landing on the Moon. The exact date when he stepped out onto the surface was 21th of July in 1969. After the landing on the Moon Neil went on working as a professor teaching his students for 8 years before his resignation at the well-known University of Cincinnati. Not only that, Neil worked for NASA even after he ended his career as a professional astronaut – he served as an accident investigator for NASA. Speaking about his personal life, Armstrong was married to Carol Held Knight. Neil Armstrong‘s net worth is estimated to be $3 million.

Neil Alden Armstrong is also the author of probably the most famous quote to ever reach the planet Earth. When Apollo 11 landed on the surface of the Moon, Neil Armstrong proudly said “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Actually, the authentic quote is missing an article “a” which gives the quote completely different meaning linguistically. Armstrong is not only famous worldwide because of this quote. There are a lot of other activities he had taken up on in his life that made him even more wealthy. He didn‘t obtain all of his wealth just by being an astronaut and being in space, or teaching his students. The famous astronaut also endorsed such brands as Chrysler, Bankers Association of America, General Time Corporation. He was also known as a public speaker as well as a board member of quite a few corporate boards. These include Marathon Oil, United Airlines, Taft Broadcasting, Eaton Corporation as well as Learjet. We can clearly see that Neal used his knowledge in every way possible by exploring all of his options in life and trying various professions that made him rich. Neil Alden Armstrong died being a millionaire and one of the best known people in history of NASA and all around the world.

# Quote
1 In my mind, the important thing was that we got four aluminum legs safely down on the surface of the moon while we were still inside the craft. To me, there wasn’t a lot of difference between having ten feet of leg between the bottom of the spacecraft in which we were standing and the surface of the moon, and having one inch of neoprene rubber or plastic on the bottom of our boots touching the lunar surface.
2 [commenting of the feasibility of a manned mission to Mars] I suspect that even though the various questions are difficult and many, they are not as difficult and many as those we faced when we started the Apollo (space program) in 1961.
3 The important achievement of Apollo was demonstrating that humanity is not forever chained to this planet and our visions go rather further than that and our opportunities are unlimited.
4 Yeah, I wasn’t chosen to be first. I was just chosen to command that flight. Circumstance put me in that particular role. That wasn’t planned by anyone.
5 Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed. [First message to the Earth from the Apollo 11 lunar module Eagle after landing on the Moon, 20 July 1969]
6 It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
7 That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. [First words spoken on the moon. The speech as written by his wife read, “That’s one small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind”. Unfortunately, he forgot the a in the between for and man, thus changing the meaning.]

2 Inducted into the International Space Hall of Fame in 1976.
3 Inducted into the International Aerospace Hall of Fame in 1966.
4 Inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 1979.
5 Honorary member of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC).
6 In 1979, while working on his farm in Lebanon, Ohio, he jumped off a grain tractor and his wedding ring was caught in the wheel, severing his ring finger. He managed to calmly collect the finger, pack it ice and had it reattached by micro surgeons at the Jewish Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky.
7 He stopped signing autographs in 1994 after finding that many of his signatures were selling for significant amounts of money, and that there were several forgeries in circulation. Since then any requests that were sent to him were answered with a form letter stating that he had stopped signing autographs.
8 In 2005, he became embroiled in a bizarre legal dispute with his longtime barber, Marx Sizemore. Armstrong alleged that after cutting some of his hair, Sizemore sold it to a collector for $3000.00 (US) without his knowledge or consent. Armstrong demanded that if Sizemore did not either return the hair in question or donate the proceeds to a charity of Armstrong’s choice, he would take legal action against him. Since Sizemore could not get the hair back, he donated the proceeds to the charity of Armstrong’s choosing.
9 For the record, it was Neil Armstrong‘s left foot that first made contact with the surface of the moon.
10 A crater on the moon is named Armstrong after him.
11 Has three children: Eric (born 1957), Karen (1959-1961) and Mark (born 1963).
12 The first man to walk on the Moon also holds the record for the greatest distance between target landing area and actual landing: in March 1966, Gemini 8 came down near Okinawa, but the intended target was the Caribbean, a distance of at least eight and a half thousand miles (13,000+ km).
13 On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 pm EDT, he stepped down from the Lunar Excursion Module Eagle and became the first man to set foot on the moon.
14 NASA realized after the Apollo 11 mission had returned to Earth that they had no good pictures of the First Man on the Moon to show to the world. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin said later: “As the sequence of lunar operations evolved, Neil had the camera most of the time, and the majority of pictures taken on the Moon that include an astronaut are of me. It wasn’t until we were back on Earth and in the lunar receiving laboratory, looking over the pictures, that we realized there were few pictures of Neil. My fault, perhaps, but we had never simulated this in our training.”.
15 Received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7021 Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, California on January 14, 1993.
16 Astronauts Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planted a plaque on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969. It reads: “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon, July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind.”.
