7 He stopped signing autographs in 1994 after finding that many of his signatures were selling for significant amounts of money, and that there were several forgeries in circulation. Since then any requests that were sent to him were answered with a form letter stating that he had stopped signing autographs.

Armstrong alleged that after cutting some of his hair, Sizemore sold it to a collector for $3000.00 (US) without his knowledge or consent.

11 Has three children: Eric (born 1957), Karen (1959-1961) and Mark (born 1963).
12 The first man to walk on the Moon also holds the record for the greatest distance between target landing area and actual landing: in March 1966, Gemini 8 came down near Okinawa, but the intended target was the Caribbean, a distance of at least eight and a half thousand miles (13,000+ km).
13 On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 pm EDT, he stepped down from the Lunar Excursion Module Eagle and became the first man to set foot on the moon.
14 NASA realized after the Apollo 11 mission had returned to Earth that they had no good pictures of the First Man on the Moon to show to the world. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin said later: "As the sequence of lunar operations evolved, Neil had the camera most of the time, and the majority of pictures taken on the Moon that include an astronaut are of me. It wasn't until we were back on Earth and in the lunar receiving laboratory, looking over the pictures, that we realized there were few pictures of Neil. My fault, perhaps, but we had never simulated this in our training.".

1 In my mind, the important thing was that we got four aluminum legs safely down on the surface of the moon while we were still inside the craft. To me, there wasn't a lot of difference between having ten feet of leg between the bottom of the spacecraft in which we were standing and the surface of the moon, and having one inch of neoprene rubber or plastic on the bottom of our boots touching the lunar surface.
2 [commenting of the feasibility of a manned mission to Mars] I suspect that even though the various questions are difficult and many, they are not as difficult and many as those we faced when we started the Apollo (space program) in 1961.
3 The important achievement of Apollo was demonstrating that humanity is not forever chained to this planet and our visions go rather further than that and our opportunities are unlimited.
4 Yeah, I wasn't chosen to be first. I was just chosen to command that flight. Circumstance put me in that particular role. That wasn't planned by anyone.
5 Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed. [First message to the Earth from the Apollo 11 lunar module Eagle after landing on the Moon, 20 July 1969]
6 It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
7 That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. [First words spoken on the moon. The speech as written by his wife read, "That's one small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind". Unfortunately, he forgot the a in the between for and man, thus changing the meaning.]
