Neil Armstrong in a tan suit at Space Mountain

36 years after walking on the moon, astronaut hero Neil Armstrong speaks politely at the relaunch of the 'Space Mountain' ride at Disneyland. (The real Disneyland in Anaheim, not the one in Florida.) The date was July 15, 2005. Armstrong rarely made public appearances, so this was a special occasion. He really liked Space Mountain, maybe? Neil Armstrong was born in 1930, so he turned 75 the year this photo was taken.
