It’s been just reported that Neil Armstrong has lied to the NASA bosses ahead of the very first mission to the Moon. But it seems that he didn’t have much choice, according to the latest reports. Express.co.uk revealed a new film that’s been released and sheds more light on this controversial subject.
The whole humanity knows that NASA’s Apollo 11 mission has landed on the Moon about 50 years ago and Neil Armstrong became the first man who set foot on the Lunar surface. He was shortly followed by Buzz Aldrin.
The massive event took place on July 20, 1969, and back then, millions of people watched it on live TV before Armstrong said the famous words.
But it seems that a lot of people are not aware of the fact that the legendary astronaut has been forced to lie to the NASA bosses about the Apollo 11 mission.
The online publication mentioned above noted that president Jhon F, Kennedy has been elected the US President after a campaign that promissed “superiority over the Soviet Union in the arms race and domination of space during the height of the Cold War.”
It’s been reported that he promised to put a man on the Moon by the end of the ’60s and so NASA was formed in 1958.
A movie called “Armstrong” details unknown events
In the Altitude Film’s upcoming release called “Armstrong”, it’s detailed how the Apollo 11 team was put together.
Voiced by Harrison Ford, he says: “We were a congenial bunch, but really focused on the job. Buzz and I had both flown in Korea, and his flying skills I was sure were good. His intelligence was high, he was a creative thinker, and he was willing to make suggestions.”
He also said, “I’m not sure if I recognized at that point in time that might be considered eccentricities. Mike Collins was [also] a joy to work with, cheerful and relaxed.”
Armstrong revealed how he was made to lie to the NASA bosses after President Nixon took over the office and had to follow Kennedy’s wishes.
As reported by Express.co.uk, Armstrong said: “I was asked by the bosses, do you think you and the guys are ready? I wanted to say ‘well it would be nice to have another month.”
He continued, “But we were in a race, and so I had to say ‘we are ready, we are ready to go.’”
The movie which will definitely be something else will be released in the UK and Irish cinemas on July 9. It will be celebrating 50 years since the first landing on the Moon.
