Caterpillar class have been learning all about space! This week we have been writing to Neil Armstrong to ask him questions about his trip. Neil Armstrong was a NASA astronaut most famous for being the first person to walk on the moon, on July 20, 1969. An accomplished test pilot, Armstrong also flew on the Gemini 8 mission in 1966. He retired from NASA in 1971 and remained active in the aerospace community, although he chose to keep mostly out of the public spotlight.
We took a few pictures of some of the letters written by the children to Neil, which can be seen in the gallery below. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
