Recently, in a BBC documentary, Neil Armstrong’s younger brother Dean has quoted that the famous first lines on the moon were recited to him months before the landing.
This has sparked a huge controversy in the media, saying that there is a possibility that Armstrong lied about the origin of the famous speech on the moon.
In many interviews the first man to step on the moon had claimed that the words ‘that is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’ had been conceived after he landed on the moon. But the contrasting claim made by his brother has created waves of speculation all over the world.
