They watched Armstrong's famous walk. Then they followed his path.
Mike Massimino was mesmerized as he watched the lunar landing. As a 6-year-old, he was already fixated on space.
“I thought the astronauts were the coolest people around and I wanted to grow up to be just like them,” he said.
Mary Louise Cleave was 16 when she watched Armstrong’s moonwalk. She too was passionate – for her it was flight.
But she never gave a thought to following in his footsteps. Girls, and women, didn’t do such things.

Looking back, Massimino says even though he was just a young boy at the time, he understood the impact of Apollo 11.
“I thought it was the most important thing that was ever going to happen in my lifetime and almost the most important thing that was ever going to happen in the world for the next 500 years,” he said.
“And I still think that.”
