Did anyone have the right to be so little changed by the voyage as Armstrong seems to have been? “How long must it take before I cease to be known as a spaceman?” he asked a reporter seven years after coming home. –Thomas Mallon reviews James R. Hansen’s First Man. –Moon Walker: How Neil Armstrong brought the space program down to earth. (The New Yorker)
Great, moody review of a book on one of my favorite subjects.
