From Boy Scout to NASA Astronaut, Neil Armstrong proved that anything is possible

By Jake Tudge, Aviation and Space Correspondent 

“This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

These words will be engraved in the memory of every school child from the space race era and indeed all the children of the future. For Neil Armstrong did not achieve something to be remembered in a generation, nor a century, but indeed the whole future of mankind will remember his extraordinary feat.

When Neil Armstrong placed his foot on the Moon, the scientific capabilities that got him there are shadowed by that of a simple mobile phone today.

The achievements of NASA inspired a whole new generation of engineers and scientists to study at College or University and go on to work in the aerospace industry. What would it take today to inspire a whole generation to challenge themselves so much?

As well as the technical achievements, Neil Armstrong showed the world how the true “American Dream” could be achieved.

Armstrong perused a very successful, although short, career in the American Navy, where he piloted 78 missions during the Korean War. Following this Armstrong graduated with a Master’s in Aerospace Engineering, where he was the second person in his family to attend College. Upon graduation Armstrong became a Test Pilot and eventually he was called up to the NASA Astronaut program. From Boy Scout to NASA Astronaut, Armstrong had showed how anything was possible.

Although Armstrong was a very private man after the first Moon landing, his achievements were not forgotten and they never will be.

The death of Neil Armstrong hit the world and he will be remembered for reaching out and showing our species as a force to be reckoned with. He will be remembered and taught to our children in schools for eternity.

    When we look back at the 20th century I believe Neil Armstrong will be the defining man history will look upon. A truly inspirational man.

    A sad, sad loss to the world. Makes you realise that whatever you do in your life it all ends the same so must make the most of your time! RIP Neil!

    RIP Neil Armstrong. Loved what his family said in a statement: “For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.” Beautiful.
