Armstrong Given Moon Rock

Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, was given a piece of moon rock by NASA last April 18. The 2-gram basalt rock was given to him as part of the Ambassadors of Exploration award he received from the agency, which was given to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the moon landing.

The crew of Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions were also designated by NASA as Ambassadors of Exploration.
