First Man The Life of Neil A Armstrong Characters ´ 100 Read Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook È James R. Hansen On July 20 1969 the world stood still to watch thirty eight year old American astronaut Neil A Armstrong become the first person to step on. It s difficult to believe there has ever been a accomplished human being who was modest than Neil Armstrong On July 20 1969 Neil A Armstrong became the first human to step on the surface of a world beyond our Earth He was 38 years old Armstrong landed on the lunar surface as perhaps the premier aviator of his generation He d been flying for 22 years having earned his pilot s license as a teenager before being old enough to apply for a driver s license His aviation achievements were unparalleled dozens of successful combat missions in the Korean War first test flights of the rocket powered X 15 first ever docking in space survivor of near disasters in space among other adventures And truth be told this aviator and engineer was interested in flying to the moon than walking on itBut for all of his achievements Neil Armstrong was reclusive His introversion often made him misunderstood And in this authorized biography James Hansen reveals for the first time who Neil Armstrong really wasArmstrong gave Hansen access to private documents and unpublished sources Hansen conducted interviews with than 125 subjects including than fifty hours with Armstrong himself And the resulting book delivers the first and only detailed accounting and in depth analysis of this reluctant hero First Man also contains the most thorough telling of the first lunar landing I ve ever read And I believe I ve read them all That alone makes the book essential readingBut there is so much in these pagesAfter walking on the moon Armstrong could have done anything His only desire was to return to his rural home in Ohio and to teach engineering at the University of Cincinnati So that s what he did Neil Armstrong worked on his farm taught the next generation of engineering students and continued his childhood fascination with flyingHe never cashed in He never sold out There would never be a Neil Armstrong action figure or any other product And he never charged a fee for a personal appearance photograph or autograph Neil A Armstrong lived a life of service achievement and modesty He made commitments to things bigger than himself He honored those commitments He racked up unprecedented achievements And he went on with his life without bragging or boasting His biography is not a light read Armstrong chose James Hansen to write his biography in part because Hansen is an Engineering professor As a result the text freuently contains detailed explanations of engineering and physics These make for arduous reading I freuently found myself re reading pages in an attempt to understand the information being conveyed I m confident that s precisely the way engineer Neil A Armstrong wanted itAnd when I finished reading First Man I was convinced of one thing the book never discusses The Apollo program had an incredible talent pool of Astronauts NASA probably couldn t have gone wrong in selecting any one of them to be the first human to attempt landing on the moon And competition for that opportunity was intense But when NASA selected Neil A Armstrong they picked the absolute BEST candidate to be the first human to walk on the moon Neil A Armstrong is than a genuine American hero Much much And First Man The Life of Neil A Armstrong reveals why

First Man The Life of Neil A Armstrong Characters ´ 100 Read Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook È James R. Hansen The surface of another heavenly body Perhaps no words in human history became better known than those few he uttered at that historic moment. Wow it was long and pretty slow in places The chapters on the moon landing were fascinating I was 5 years old at the time and while I distinctly remember someone showing me the moon and telling me men were there I had little other knowledge of the event There are lots of details on Armstrong s life before becoming an astronaut and only a few spare chapters on his life after leaving NASA Interesting read but not exactly an enjoyable one
