Neil Armstrong becomes first person to walk on MSEE moon

14 Feb

During a recent and equally rare visit, Purdue graduate Neil Armstrong, best known as the first man to walk on the moon outdid even himself when he set foot atop the moon in front of the Materials and Electrical Engineering building.

Many onlookers gathered around as Armstrong slowly climbed up a ladder and reached the surface top.  16 minutes later, Armstrong returned to the ground and walked back towards Armstrong Hall, where he was schedule to receive an award.

Brian Richmond, a Sophomore in the College of Health Sciences was pretty shocked by the whole event.  “I didn’t even know who he was until someone told me after the fact.  When he was climbing up the ladder, nobody knew what he was doing.  Some grounds-keeper kept yelling at him to get down but he didn’t listen.”
