Neil Armstrong – First Television Interview (Part-2)

60minutes Interview with Astronaut Neil Armstrong who was the first person to set foot on the Moon In July 1969. In 1957, he was selected for the US Air Force’s Man In Space Soonest program. In November 1960 Armstrong was chosen as part of the pilot consultant group for the X-20 Dyna-Soar, a military space plane. He flew the North American X-15 on November 30, 1960, to a top altitude of 48840 ft (14.9 km) and a top speed of Mach 1.75 (1150 mph or 1810 km/h). Armstrong made seven flights in the X-15. He reached a top altitude of 207500 ft (63.2 km) in the X-15-3, and a top speed of Mach 5.74 (4000 mph or 6615 km/h) in the X-15-1. In September 1962 Armstrong was selected for NASA’s Astronaut Group 2 or “The New Nine”. 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. Armstrong’s second and last spaceflight was as mission commander of the Apollo 11 moon landing mission on July 20, 1969. On this mission, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended to the lunar surface and spent 2½ hours exploring while Michael Collins remained in orbit in the Command Module. Armstrong announced shortly after the Apollo 11 flight that he did not plan to fly in space again. Armstrong served on two spaceflight accident investigations. The first was in 1970, after Apollo 13. In 1986 President Ronald Reagan appointed him to the Rogers Commission, which investigated

    @83redshadow Obama is doing more to the moon program than what NASA and their favourite contractors have done in the last 50 years.

  2. forestinfullbloom says:

    @NeilFraudstrong Check “what happened on the moon” Infact replicating it is pretty easy. It is just counter-intuitive that’s all

  3. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp WTF! We’ve got the whole moon photographed and mapped & there ain’t no pyramids on it. Yeah some of us do have a clue. You’re a looney tune.

  4. TopSideUp says:

    @FantasticBob7000 whats my quote? All i did was tell you (which means indirectly to everyone) about a channel with some cool footage, i didnt say anything about telling anyone what to believe, most of the video on that channel is there for pure observation and just points out discrepancies in reports vs what is on tape. And you would have no clue if there was pyramids on the moon or not. And to be honest, im not afraid to say that I lean towards the belief that we are not alone. :)

  5. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp Dude. That was your quote. Their “analysis” wouldn’t get a passing grade in a junior high class. They think nasa found pyramids on the moon and earth orbit is swarming with aliens. Quit kidding yourself.

  6. TopSideUp says:

    @FantasticBob7000 who said i held any view? I wasn’t talking about the questionable quindar tone videos if thats what you leaped to conclusions about. I was talking about the analysis of raw nasa footage in most of the others. what view is it that i share? Its not even a moon hoax channel lmfao, you are ranting pointlessly about nothing.

  7. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp Ha ha I don’t “share the view” of wacko moon hoax websites, remember?

  8. TopSideUp says:

    @FantasticBob7000 neither will yours.

  9. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp I hear you man, your judgment you’ve been demonstrating isn’t going to be rehabilitated by any engineering or science degree you might have. Assuming you have one.

  10. TopSideUp says:

    @Fantastic, lol as if that proves a damn thing about anyone regarding peoples random egocentric and arrogant attitudes towards others without provocation, totally irrelevant. I don’t need to flaunt my own degree to prove my judgment. And engineering degrees don’t make a damn difference for anyone when it comes to analyzing film. I believe you might need to be a computer scientist/videographer, maybe some astronomy… for any formal credibility on the subject of unidentified objects footage.

  11. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp I think some of the people you’re complaining about actually have engineering degrees.

  12. TopSideUp says:

    @FantasticBob7000 wtf is wrong with people these days?????

  13. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp Yeah that’s it. You’re a genius.

  14. TopSideUp says:

    @FantasticBob7000 those are real videos, its funny how people just discount things because they dont want to believe them

  15. FantasticBob7000 says:

    @TopSideUp I just checked it out, it’s a crackpot website. One of many. It’s funny how people pay attention to nonsense just because someone makes some videos.

  16. n8tureboy says:


    I appreciate and respect your opinion. I’ll def. go check into LunaCognita and see what they have to say.
    Thanks. N8

  17. TopSideUp says:

    @n8tureboy I share the view of LunaCognita Go to that channel, LunaCognita, it has some of the most amazing moon analysis and video on ALL of youtube, im sure ur subscribed already lol :), go now!

  18. TopSideUp says:

    @n8tureboy I think he went there but they edited alot and maybe faked some scenes. I just dont think that these astronauts could have such a genuine conviction plus the evidence that it actually happened. I mean there is video of the landing. I believe we went, and then heavily edited and filtered what the public saw, and maybe faked some of the scenes, you never know. Perhaps there IS a slight breeze on the moon u never know, they may lie about everything!

  19. bencawley1 says:

    I dont think it was fake at all. We definately had the capabilities back then it was all based on simple newtonian physics the difficult part was the landing

  20. n8tureboy says:


    You’re so right about ol’ Buzz! That guy is the biggest opportunist since ? Have you ever read Dave McGowans work on the Apollo program. Type the Center For An Informed America into a search, you won’t regret it, some well researched and hilarious work on the moon-hoax.
    Peace back @ you good-sir!

  21. un4g1v3n1 says:

    @n8tureboy I completely agree with your assessment. They were able to talk Neil into this for the good of the country. We were getting our ass kicked by the USSR in the space race propaganda war…We needed a win REALLY bad. Even if it meant faking it. I don’t rag on Armstrong though, because at least he had the good sense to choose reclusive living over what BUZZ has done, which is CASHING IN every chance he gets!!!

    Peace to you and yours Neil!

  22. n8tureboy says:

    I agree with you. I do think he was shamed by this whole ploy. Have you seen the One-And-Only press conference that all the astronauts held when they returned from the ‘moon’?

    You woulda’ thought they hadn’t gone around the block on their bicycles for crying out loud. Talk about depressing! Those guy’s knew they were lying and they didn’t feel good about it at all. They were told it’s for the countries morale. We’ve got to do this for the USA, etc.
    Sad really!

  23. n8tureboy says:


    He went to near-Earth orbit, but he never went to the moon. No one has ever gone to the moon-EVER! We didn’t have the capabilities in the 60′s and 70′s and we don’t have it now. I’m not dis-respecting your opinions at all. I just think that people have bought into this fraud hook-line-sinker and I feel it’s high-time to expose NASA (Never A Straight Answer) for what they did, that’s all. I agree that Armstrong does feel shame for what he did…I feel sorry for him.

  24. TopSideUp says:

    @n8tureboy lol, you have NO clue what i believe, you just jump to conclusions that fit what you read into what im talking about. and if you think arm strong didn’t go into outer-space (moon or not) you are a confused person.

  25. un4g1v3n1 says:

    I believe that Neil Armstrong truly regrets fooling the world… I submit 0:35 as proof of this. And don’t give me the humble bit. Reclusion was from shame, not fame!!!
