Neil Armstrong Lied About One Small Step Line Claims Dean Armstrong

Neil Armstrong Lied About One Small Step Line Claims Dean Armstrong

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Neil Armstrong lied about his “one small step line”, claims a news special today. Neil Armstrong lied about the origin of the line, claims his brother Dean Armstrong, in a news interview for a BBC special entitled “Neil Armstrong — First Man on the Moon.” Neil Armstrong had always told news that the line was improvised. But Dean Armstrong now tells news that the expression was allegedly drafted, and rehearsed, months before the trip to the moon.

While debate still looms about what was actually said during the 1969 transmission, a news interview this week will contradictory Neil Armstrong’s own accounts about the origin of the “one small step line”.

BBC documentary’s director, Christopher Riley, sat down recently with Dean Armstrong. Following the death of Neil Armstrong in August 2012, questions surrounded the origin of the “one small step line” expression. But in the BBC Two news special airing this week, Dean says that the line allegedly was not spontaneously created by Neil on the moon. Rather Dean claims the line was scripted and rehearsed months earlier by Neil Armstrong back on earth.

“He says, ‘What do you think about that?’ I said ‘fabulous.’ He said ‘I thought you might like that, but I wanted you to read it,’” Dean tells BBC tonight.

Neil’s own account of the line is contrary too that of Dean’s allegations. Neil detailed the line’s origins to his biographer James Hansen in his 2005 biography. In “First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong”, Neil Armstrong told news that “Once on the surface and realizing that the moment was at hand, fortunately I had some hours to think about it after getting there. My own view was that it was a very simplistic statement: what can you say when you step off of something? Well, something about a step.” He added “It just sort of evolved during the period that I was doing the procedures of the practice takeoff and the EVA prep and all the other activities that were on our flight schedule at the time. I didn’t think it was particularly important, but other people obviously did. Even so, I have never thought that I picked a particularly enlightening statement. It was a very simple statement.”

    That doesn’t even romotely compare to the Neal Armstrong cover-up that the media and NASA doesn’t want anyone to talk about. Read about it here:

    The “Moon Landing” never happened, none of them! We may have orbited the earth and maybe the moon but the technology to land on the moon just wasn’t there yet.

    The down-link in Australia had a much better recording of Apollo 11. It went over telephone equipment on it’s way to Mission Control in Houston, Texas, where the recording we always see and hear was made. Much of the degradation of the recording was due to the telephone links between Australia and Texas, rather than between the Moon and the Earth. In the good Australian down-link recording, Armstrong clearly says “a man”. Unfortunately, someone was cleaning out a NASA warehouse, maybe 20 years ago, and discarded it! Neil Armstrong may have had several things he might have said, and probably decided which one, after they’d landed. He wasn’t one for long, convoluted explanations, not a liar.
