5 August is the anniversary of the birth of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Born in Wapakoneta, Ohio, in 1930, he studied aerospace engineering and spent some years with the Fleet Aircraft Service of the American Navy. After working as a test pilot, he joined what was then the US Air Force’s space programme.

Armstrong was the commander of Apollo 11 and, on 21 July 1969, became the first man to set foot on the Moon.
