fun fact, Armstrong meant to say "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" but the a was inaudible because of the poor quality.

It is sad that he has died and that people still say it was a hoax, those people should stop lying about an American astronaut not doing what he said he did.

I almost cried when I first saw this
You're not the only one.
Armstrong did step on the Moon, so did Aldrin, and the dozen or so other astronauts. I'm sure that this will spark much more discussion, but I have seen the Mythbusters episode on the Moon landing, and I was already convinced, and now am even more so. You can find segments of that episode on Youtube.
If it were, the Ruskies would be all over the place yelling "hoax, hoax". But, you don't see them doing that, do you?
Whatever the case, may he rest in peace.
Amen.

Wow, no conspiracy theories displayed even after 23 replies! This is due an applause!

What I find very disturbing about people calling this fake is how they can actually say so. They are calling one of the most important moments in human history a set-up, simply because they dislike Americans. I mean, I share no particular love for them either, but when it comes to this, I truly think there's no point in denying someone simply because you don't like the country they're from.

was it a hoax?
No. There has been controversary ever since the moon landing, but all the theories that the moon landing had been faked have been disproven. Take for instance people making a an observation that the flag waved, as if blown by wind. The flag was constructed with metal framework, but the vibrations of the handlers caused it to ripple. This was proven by experiments later done in replicated conditions by NASA and a few other groups, one of the most notable being the television group the "Mythbusters."
other 2 crew members completely ignored by the general public, simply because they did not step on the moon first?

Im not American, but even in my country we are aware of the great contribution of all the members of that mission, and if anything Armstrong was actually had less attention then the other crew members due to his attitude towards media exposure, he preferred being reclusive. To answer the question thoroughly, I think the overall public (being the international community in general) does not ignore any of the members of the mission, or any monumental moment in space exploration, regardless of the nation/organization, person's involved or otherwise. But do certain groups or individuals get more media spotlight then others? Yes.
