Neil Armstrong Lied About ‘One Small Step,’ Brother Says
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Did he? Or didn’t he? That’s the question a new documentary about legendary astronaut Neil Armstrong sheds light on over his famous “one small step” speech.
Millions across the world heard him say, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
But, according to a rare interview with his brother, Dean, Neil showed him a written version of the speech — months before that famous Apollo 11 launch.
Which is contrary to Armstrong saying he thought of his speech after landing on the moon.
That speech apparently said, “that’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” So, was the letter “a” muffled by static? Or forgotten by Armstrong altogether?
