Neil Alden Armstrong (ur. 5 sierpnia 1930 w Wapakoneta, Ohio) - dowódca misji Apollo 11  Start 16 lipca 1969 r. z Centrum Lotów Kosmicznych na Przylądku Canaveral. Po trzech dniach Apollo 11 wszedł na orbitę Księżyca. Armstrong i Aldrin przeszli do modułu księżycowego. Astronauci wylądowali na Księżycu 20 lipca 1969 roku.

  • Neil Alden Armstrong (born August 5, 1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio) is a former American astronaut, test pilot, university professor, and United States Naval Aviator. He is the first person to set foot on the Moon. His first spaceflight was aboard Gemini 8 in 1966, for which he was the command pilot. On this mission, he performed the first manned docking of two spacecraft together with pilot David Scott.

  • „In the closing year of the 20th century, a rather impressive consortium of 27 professional engineering societies, representing nearly every engineering discipline, gave its time, resources, and attention to a nationwide effort to identify and communicate the ways that engineering has affected our lives. Each organization independently polled its membership to learn what individual engineers believed to be the greatest achievements in their respective fields. Because these professional societies were unrelated to each other, the American Association of Engineering Societies and the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) helped to coordinate the effort.

  • The likelihood that the era of creative engineering is past is nil.  It is not unreasonable to suggest that, with the help of engineering, society in the 21st century will enjoy a rate of progress equal to or greater than that of the 20th. It is a worthy goal.”

My first serious attempt at technological prediction began in 1961 in the journal that has published most of my scientific writings— Playboy magazine. They were later assembled in Profiles of the Future (Bantam Books, 1964).

Let us begin with the earliest ones— the wheel, the plough, bridle and harness, metal tools, glass. (I almost forgot buttons—where would we be without those?)

  • Moving some centuries closer to the present, we have writing, masonry (particularly the arch), moveable type, explosives, and perhaps the most revolutionary of all inventions because it multiplied the working life of countless movers and shakers— spectacles.

  • The harnessing and taming of electricity, first for communications and then for power, is the event that divides our age from all those that have gone before. I am fond of quoting the remark made by the chief engineer of the British Post Office, when rumors of a certain Yankee invention reached him: “The Americans have need of the Telephone—but we do not. We have plenty of messenger boys.” I wonder what he would have thought of radio, television, computers, fax machines—and perhaps above all—e-mail and the World Wide Web. The father of the WWW, Tim Berners-Lee, generously suggested I may have anticipated it in my 1964 short story "Dial F for Frankenstein” (Playboy again!).



As I reluctantly approach my 85th birthday I have two main hopes—I won’t call them expectations—for the future. The first is carbon 60—better known as Buckminsterfullerene, which may provide us with materials lighter and stronger than any metals. It would revolutionize every aspect of life and make possible the Space Elevator, which will give access to near-Earth space as quickly and cheaply as the airplane has opened up this planet.
