RIP Neil Armstrong. I remembered that he actually got it wrong, by saying "one small step for man" instead of "one small step for A man", showing the power of the article in English - something I endeavour to get across to my Russian colleagues, with limited succcess. But he was a native speaker of English and he got it wrong. It didn't really matter though. We knew what he meant. I was 15 that year. The excitement of the new. Rest in peace Neil. I remember your colleague Buzz Aldrin punching a moon-landings denier in the face on live TV, which was great fun, but that is another story.
