First Man on the Moon Preview

He risked his life for the nation and became a world icon, but who was Neil Armstrong?

About the Show

Everyone knows Neil Armstrong was the first to set foot on the moon. But this modest and unassuming man was determined to stay out of the spotlight. Now, for the first time, NOVA presents an intimate portrait of Armstrong through interviews with his family and friends, many of whom have never spoken publicly before.
