Neil Armstrong net worth: Neil Armstrong was an American Astronaut, public speaker and corporate board member who has a net worth of $8 million dollars. Neil Armstrong is most famous for being the first human being to walk on the moon. While walking on the moon, Neil Armstrong delivered one of the most famous quotes in human history "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Interestingly, the actual line was "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Notice the missing "a" in the version we heard on earth? It makes a fairly large difference in the meaning of the line and was lost in transmission.

Neil Armstrong was born August 5th 1930 and died August 25th 2012 at the age of 82. He served in the Navy prior to becoming an astronaut, experiencing action during the Korean war. Armstrong was a test pilot with the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics which gave him access to many advanced prototype aircraft. This experience gave Armstrong a leg up when he volunteered for the NASA Astronaut Corp in 1962. He flew two missions as a NASA astronaut, Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 (the moon landing). Armstrong stepped out of the lunar module and placed his space boot onto the surface of the moon on July 21, 1969.

After the Apollo mission, Neil Armstrong retired from astronaut life and served as a teacher and accident investigator for NASA. He also endorsed several brands including Chrysler, General Time Corporation and Bankers Association of America. Armstrong was a highly sought after public speaker and member of several corporate boards including Learjet, United Airlines, Marathon Oil and more.
