Neil Armstrong describing the moon in a rare, 1970 interview8/25/2012
NASA and Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, are in discussions for a cooperative venture to establish manned research bases on the moon, but someone was talking about it more than 40 years ago: Neil Armstrong. The first man who walked on the moon, who died Saturday at the age of 82, told the BBC's Patrick Moore back in 1970 that he thought he'd live to see lunar outposts. "In many ways, it's more hospitable than Antarctica might be," Armstrong said, "and the gravity is a very pleasant kind of place to work in – better than here on earth. I think it would be quite a pleasant place to do scientific work, and very practical." In the rare interview, Armstrong also describes what it was like to gaze into space from the lunar surface. "Color is a puzzling phenomenon on the moon."
