Neil Armstrong describes his arrival to the moon in rare interview

Neil Armstrong describes his arrival to the moon in rare interview

Astronaut the first man to walk on the moon, gave an to an Australian accountant who managed to convince him to talk to him. Armstrong is very quiet and rarely willing to speak in public.

“A month before the launch of Apollo 11, we decided that we were confident enough to try to descend to the surface,” said astronaut 82 years in the video that was posted on the website of the Certified Practicing Accountants .

“I thought we had a 90% chance of returning safely to Earth on that flight, but only a 50% chance of a landing on the first try,” he said.

Asked about people who do not believe that has actually reached the and everything is a U.S. invention. “People love conspiracies, are very attractive, but I never worried. Because I know that someday someone will go, and can pick up the camera that I left there, “he said.

Armstrong said he was concerned about the future of NASA. “We have a problem in America where the executive branch and the legislative branch, the White House and Congress have opposed views about what should be the future of the agency. So they’re playing a game and NASA is in the middle, while both sides try to lead NASA on track, “he said. The astronaut said he and his colleagues will continue to participate in the discussions on the subject, after last year express their opinion about it in print .

How do I get Neil Armstrong to be interviewed by a group of accountants? Alex Malley, the person who managed and conducted the interview, said: “I know something most people do not know about Neil Armstrong – his father was an auditor.”
