“Neil Armstrong:

a Life of Flight”

By Jay Barbree

Biography

Much has been written about Neil Armstrong, America’s modern hero and history’s most famous space traveler. NBC’s News Space Correspondent and a long-time friend of Armstrong’s Jay Barbree gives us the definitive story of his life of flight.

Neil flew combat missions in the Korean War and then flew a rocket plane called the X-15 to the edge of space before joining the astronaut crew. As an astronaut, he was a very quiet leader, and eventually would save his Gemini 8 crew by flying the first emergency return from Earth’s orbit and later landed Apollo 11 on the moon’s surface and he made the first footprints on someplace other than Earth.

“Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.”
