On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong, member of Apollo 11 mission set foot on the Moon and said a few spot on words that went instantly into the history,  "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Mr. Neil Armstrong died at the age of 82 in hospital in Columbus, after he underwent the surgery to relieve blocked coronary arteries.

Neil Armstrong  was a NASA astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university professor and United States Naval Aviator. During his career as a test pilot he flew in more than 200 different models of aircraft including the X-15, a rocket powered experimental airplane, in which he reached a top speed of 4.000 mph (6.615 km/h).

The first time Neil Armstrong flew in space, was in 1966 where he was the command pilot of the NASA Gemini 8 mission.

After the Apollo 11 crew landed safely in the Pacific Ocean, they have been put in quarantine for 18 days, as a percussion in case they had get an infections or diseases while being on the Moon. The other two members of the Apollo 11 mission were Buzz Aldrin - the second human to ever set foot on the Moon, and Michael Collins.

When Neil Armstrong died the world lost one of humanity’s true heroes. It wasn’t just that he was the first man to ever step on the moon, or that he did so in a spaceship that had less power than your phone. What made Neil Armstrong so special was he never let fame go to his head.

As an interesting fact: the astronaut on the first photo you posted is not Neil Armstrong, it's Buzz Aldrin but you can see Neil Armstrong taking this very photo in the Aldrin's helmet shield.
