I know that I have not covered it in my usual Adi’s Week in Tech News roundup, but I have some news that also happened only very recently. In the last two days, Astronaut Neil Armstrong has passed away at the age of 82. Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission with Buzz Aldrin(the second man on the moon).
Just shortly after 8.15PM UTC on 20th of July 1969, the Eagle(the lunar module of Apollo 11) touched down on the surface of the moon. Then, just shortly after 9PM UTC on that day Neil Armstrong made history and became the first man to walk on the moon. Here is a video of Armstrong’s historic first words from the lunar surface.
After his Apollo 11 mission, he went on to teach engineering in the University of Cincinnati in Ohio USA.
