Off-topic – Rare interview with Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong


I tend not to stray far from the conspicuity and visibility topic very often   But… if you are one of the baby-boomers like me, you would have lived through the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space missions in the years leading up to the moon landing in 1969. I was 11 years old when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon and even after all these years I remember the air of excitement on the day. Classes at school were adjourned and we watched a fuzzy black & white TV image of man’s first steps on the moon.

It is very rare for Neil Armstrong to give interviews but the Certified Practicing Accountants of Australia in their 150th year celebrations managed to convince the retired astronaut to take part in a four segment interview lasting almost one hour. It is well worth watching the video to gain an insight into the man himself and to hear an in-depth commentary of the space race as history was being created forty years ago.
