  1. The answer is b) Neil Armstrong (sorry Tomohisa, it happened before you were born!), well done everyone.
    Please read Takayo’s comment to find out all about Louis Armstrong (satchmo, short for ‘satchel mouth’) and Lance Armstrong.
    Takayo asked if we should use the past tense when referring to Louis Armstrong, since he is dead, and the answer is yes.
    Please also read Kim’s comment to find out all about the other two astronauts who were part of the first moon landing, it’s very interesting to hear about Neil Armstrong’s ‘mistake’ when he said the first words on the moon.


  2. One small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.
    Neil Armstrong when he set the first human foot on the moon.
    The small craft which carried him to the moon surface was called the Eagle. Some enthusiasts treasure the words announced when it landed on the moon: “The Eagle has landed.” On the Eagle was another astronaut named Buzz Aldrin, who is the second man on the moon. This mission, namely Apollo 11, was consisted with three astronauts. Michael Collins, the third man, was not on the Eagle when it landed, but stayed on the orbit around the moon. So, your second question “who are the other two” is illogical. The third man on the moon is Charles “Pete” Conrad, Jr., the commander of the next Apollo mission.

    Neil Armstrong erred when he said “for man”, but is it really a fault?
    Also confusing is the present and the past, when we talk about historic events:
    – Who WAS the first person to walk on the moon?
    – And who ARE the other two?
    No one is perfect, and such imperfect creature called humans accomplished such a wonderful journey. Isn’t it something?


  3. Answer is “b)”. Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon on 20 July, in 1969.
    “a)”, Louis Armstrong is an American Jazz trumpet player and singer.He lived in from 1900 to 1971. And his nickname is サッチモ (I’m sorry , I don’t know that spelling).
    “c)”, Lance Armstrong is a pro bicycle road race player. He has topped in Tour de France (bicycle road race in France, and it is the oldest race in the world) 7 years on end, and he is first man who was keeping championship during 7 years.

    By the way, Louis Armstrong died in 1971. should I use past form for him? What should I do for deceased people in grammar?
