Macleans    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Neil Armstrong, who died after heart surgery at age 82, was known for the restraint with which he used his fame. Armstrong, one of only two civilians amongst the 12 men who walked on the moon, never tried to boost his NASA salary, or his later income from business and teaching, by appearing in vacuum-cleaner ads or peddling a tell-all book. His near-reclusiveness has been seen as a manifestation of old-school Midwestern virtue, and it certainly is that. But it also reflected his engineer's soul. Armstrong was the ultimate in right-angled rationalists—an almost monastically mission-oriented person in a '60s NASA environment full of short-fused fighter-jock egos. More
