I was 11 years old, studying in class six, when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. My science teacher announced the great event in the classroom. After that, I developed a special interest in science.

Neil Armstrong became a household name when he set foot on the moon. He was a modest, private person with legendary humility. He once said: “I don’t want to be a living memorial”.
