It's August 5, maybe you or somebody you know has a birthday. And so does the first man to walk on the moon, astronaut Neil Armstrong.
Armstrong's career leading up to the OG moonwalk (sorry, Michael) featured the kind of aviation feats that'd make Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer go cry in the corner.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one and all, and to Neil Armstrong, who proved he could handle anything life could throw at him, because he had been enough of a badass to literally go where no man had gone before.
