Neil Armstrong died a year ago and NASA is remembering the iconic astronaut with a touching music video tribute. He died on August 25 2012 at the age of 82. Armstrong cemented his place in history when he became the first person to walk on the moon as commander of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar landing mission on July 20, 1969.
NASA posted a video tribute with the song "Tranquility Base" by songwriter Eric Brace. The video melds iconic photos from the mission to Eric Brace's lyrics.
"NASA is remembering Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on another world, on the first anniversary of his death," NASA officials wrote in a video description. "Red Beet Records recording artist and Grammy nominee Eric Brace, with some video assistance from NASA, honors Armstrong with an original composition, 'Tranquility Base,' originally written to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 11 in 2009."
Brace's song begins:
"Tell me Neil, what you were thinking
With all of us watching you on the TV
Taking small steps and giant leaps and planting the flag
In a place no one had been."
Armstrong was born Aug. 5, 1930, in Wapakoneta, Ohio, and served as a Navy aviator from 1949 to 1952. In 1955, he joined the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, or NACA, which eventually evolved into NASA.
