Neil Armstrong paid tribute yesterday to the spacemen who died paving the way for his 1969 Moonwalk as President Obama prepared to honour him and his Apollo 11 crewmates in Washington today for the 40th anniversary of their historic mission.

In a rare public appearance, the first man on the Moon spoke of the colleagues who gave their lives for America’s early space programme and how their sacrifice laid the foundations for his spectacular lunar debut.

"Amiable Strangers " what a strange thing to say , how sad that the three men that "changed the world" never seemed to bond ....

Just the chemistry, the crew of Apollo 12 were almost closer than brothers
