Neil Armstrong Was Almost Not Accepted As Astronaut

Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, was almost not accepted as an astronaut. He needed to seek help from a friend working in the Manned Spacecraft Centre for his registration form to be filed together with the other applicants' records because it's already 1 week late! This friend was able to put Armstrong's application into the pile of documents without being noticed by anyone. If this "act of bravery" didn't happen, Neil Armstrong wouldn't be the first astronaut to step on the moon.
