‘One Small Step…’ One Big Lie? [POLL]

Neil Armstrong, who passed away in August of 2012, will always be remembered for being the first man to set foot on the moon.

Now, his brother Dean is saying that Neil’s famous line wasn’t ad-libbed like Neil had said.

Does that really matter?   Let me know when you read more!

Neil Armstrong, who died at the age of 82 in August of 2012 will forever be an American icon: The First Man To Set Foot On The Lunar Surface.  As Neil put his foot down on the moon he uttered the famous line- “That’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind.”  Neil always stuck to saying that he didn’t come up with that line until Apollo 11 capsule had landed; but now his brother is saying that Neil had come up with the line months prior to the mission leaving Earth.  According to The Telegraph, Dean was visiting Neil and during that visit, Neil handed him a piece of paper with the quote on it- asking what Dean thought of it.

The line was written ‘One small step for ‘A’ man’- according to Dean.]

A lot of people since that July 20, 1969 utterance have thought that Neil did mess up his own line.

Whether you believe Dean Armstrong’s story- about the quote being written in advance or not- I personally don’t think it matters all that much. It’s a great quote. A great remark on humankind’s advances.
