One Small Step for Man… One Giant Leap for Deadlines


Neil Armstrong’s footprints narrowly avoided being rejected as an astronaut. His application to NASA was one week late.

Day slipped the application into the pile of timely applications, thus paving the way for Armstrong’s footprints on the lunar surface.
