Astronaut Neil Armstrong's parents, Stephen Koenig Armstrong and Viola Louise Engel Armstrong have a secret that their son was just made an astronaut on this day at 3 PM, September 17, 1962. Armstrong was one of nine new men so chosen. Host Garry Moore asks an incredible question, "Now, how would you feel, Mrs. Armstrong, if it turned out - of course nobody knows - but if it turns out that your son is the first man to land on the moon? What, how do, how would you feel?" He asks this nearly seven years before it actually happens on July 20 1969! Neil's mom's reply is priceless, "Well, guess I'd just say god bless him and I wish him the best of all good luck." Neil Armstrong did not see this recording until 40 years after it originally aired.
