A participant in the U.S. Air Force's Man in Space Soonest and X-20 Dyna-Soar human spaceflight programs, Armstrong joined the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1962. He made his first space flight, as command pilot of Gemini 8, in 1966, becoming NASA's first civilian astronaut to fly in space. On this mission, he performed the first docking of two spacecraft, with pilot David Scott.
Armstrong's second and last spaceflight was as mission commander of the Apollo 11 moon landing, in July 1969. On this mission, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended to the lunar surface and spent two and a half hours exploring, while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the Command Module. Along with Collins and Aldrin, Armstrong was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Richard Nixon; in 1978, President Jimmy Carter presented Armstrong the Congressional Space Medal of Honor in 1978; he and his former crewmates received the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009.

Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon,
I bet you still think it's made of cheese, grow up you buffoon.
You just copied Aldrin with your slappy crappy name,
My rhymes are brought quality, your rhymes are brought lame.
I had the balls to test rockets that weren't even safe,
You're a toy, you aint real, you've not solved a true case.
You're a waste of space and a waste to space,
I mean what the actual fuck? You're as small as a tube of toothpaste.
And if that weren't enough, you got kidnapped,
Oh, of course you're a man, sarcasm you ding bat.
I'm the principle of miracles and lyrical meanings,
So go back to your cowboy, because you've just got a beating!
You broke your wing while trying to fly out of a window,
See, there's the difference, I'm a gremlin, you're the gizmo.
I can go on to dis you all day, but why would I wanna do that?
You're an emo with your hair and scared of pussy cats!
