Neil Armstrong’s Resume: the Man So Introverted He Flew to the Moon to Get Away #infographic

There's a scene at the end of Apollo 11 where Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins make a television broadcast.

"We would like to thank all the Americans who designed the spacecraft, who did the engineering, design, testing, and put their heart and talents into the crafts," says Armstrong.

His thanks are well deserved. 400,000 men and women back on Earth worked tirelessly to back Moon landing. We tend to forget them-but Neil Armstrong never did. Throughout the years he diverted all publicity and praise to those anonymous Apollo Program members.

Despite this, the Moon landing launched him into instant stardom. Yet contrary to Buzz Aldrin, Armstrong has never taken it upon himself. He firmly believed that he did not deserve the fame.

So what was he up to? Although Aldrin enjoyed his time at the spotlight, Armstrong resigned from NASA, moving to a farm in Ohio to get away from it all. Finally he stopped giving interviews or making public appearances almost entirely.

That earned him the reputation of being "quiet, almost to a fault" and "painfully shy." Some even assumed he was standoffish, rude or ungrateful.
