Happy (Belated) Moon Day: Here's Neil Armstrong Eating Fried Chicken


On July 20, 1969, this quiet, unassuming Ohioan flew a spaceship to the moon and became the first man to walk on its surface. Our hats are off to you on your big anniversary, sir. Enjoy your chicken.


The gang's all here: Buzz Aldrin, Mike Collins and Neil, with an inflatable moon.

Both photos are from Life magazine, 1969.
