On July 20, 1969, a quiet, determined man from Wapakoneta, Ohio, stepped out of his fragile spacecraft and into history Neil Armstrong engineer, naval aviator, test pilot, astronaut and devoted family man became the first man to walk on the moon In this powerful, unrelenting biography of a man of no particularly spectacular talent yet who stands as a living testimony to everyday grit and determination, former NASA historian Hansen has achieved something quite remarkable Like a rich pointillist painting, he has created a magnificent panorama of the second half of the American 20th century by assembling a multitude of luminescent moments in one man s life From Armstrong s birth to a middle class family in Ohio to the mind boggling fame of the Apollo 11 triumph, and later his service on the commission investigating the 1986 Challenger space shuttle disaster, Hansen details it all He writes of the number of rounds of 20 millimeter ammunition loosed by Armstrong s fighter squadron in Korea in October 1951 49,299 , his heart rate on liftoff in Gemini VIII 146 beats per minute and the price of a signed Armstrong letter at auction 2,500 Rather than overwhelming, this accumulation of details gives flesh and blood reality to a man who is icon than human With the recent renewal of interest in manned space travel, this book is a must for astronaut buffs and history readers alike.Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.For the first time, the cool, precise, and c elebrity averse Neil Armstrong has authorized a biography Its readers cannot expect any access to his emotional interior than the first man to walk on the moon has ever allowed, but they will learn about everything he achieved in aerospace engineering Deflecting aerospace historian Hansen s inquiries about personal crises, such as the death of an infant daughter or his divorce, Armstrong proves disarmingly voluble about his involvement with airplanes and spacecraft Quelling apocrypha circulated at the time of Apollo 11 about the all American boy who dreamed of going to the moon, Hansen follows the empirical arc of Armstrong s interest in aviation, his engineering studies at Purdue University, and his qualification as an aircraft carrier pilot After the Korean War, Armstrong resumed his engineering career, wrote technical papers, flew hotshot planes like the X 15, and stepped irrevocably into history with Apollo 11 Dramatizing the mission in meticulous detail, Hansen capably captures both Armstrong s expertise and his
