Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong's last interview conducted by the late Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes, aired Nov 6, 2005:
excerpt: "“That July morning in 1969, when you came out and you gave that thumbs-up, I mean, that was a very confident view you put on,” says
“Yeah, but a little bit of a sham, I admit,” says Armstrong. "You know, the reality is, a lot of times you get up and get in the cockpit, and
something goes wrong somewhere and you go back down. So, actually, when you actually lift off, it's really a big surprise..."
Why was Armstrong press statement/interview free most all the years since the flight of Apollo 11?
