Neil Armstrong Apollo 11

Seems like an appropriate image to say Happy Birthday to astronaut, Neil Armstrong -  the first person to set foot on the Moon, which he did on July 20, 1969. He famously said,  "That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind." Armstrong later said that he had accidentally dropped the 'a' from his remark, rendering the phrase a contradiction (as 'man' in such use is synonymous with mankind if you know what I mean!) I did this illustration for an article in New Scientist a while back.
