Neil Armstrong, first man to set foot on The Moon, has died. He was 82.
He walked on the Moon on 20 July 1969, famously describing the event as “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.
He was the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft. He and fellow astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the moon.
Armstrong was believed to have died following complications after surgery.
