Astronaut Neil Armstrong On Why He's Proud To Be A Nerd

Jorge Cham of PHD Comics animated this wonderful speech the Apollo 11 commander gave back in 2000. In it, Armstrong proclaims he's proud to be a nerdy engineer, lists engineering's many 20th century accomplishments, and explains why he has hope for the future. It's not just inspiring, it's genuinely comforting.



Neil Armstrong is probably my greatest hero. Any reason to listen to this humble man with epic stones is worth the time.
