How much did he earn?: No 38: Neil Armstrong
Sunday 24 July 1994
Salary: Regular astronaut's salary of dollars 20,000 a year. No bonuses were paid on the Moon-landing mission, but the glamour of taking part in the Apollo programme helped to further subsequent careers in the business world.
Hours: 195 hours, 18 minutes and 35 seconds were spent in Apollo 11 on the mission, between 16 and 24 July.
Perks: The first group of Apollo astronauts was offered cut-price rental on Chevrolet Corvette sports cars from a local car firm, but the privilege had been withdrawn by the time Armstrong joined the programme. The experience of landing on the Moon, combined with the fame that ensued, produced mixed effects on the astronauts, and
Armstrong has since maintained a low profile.
Where is he now? Initially trained as a fighter pilot, he continued to work for Nasa for two years and then became professor of aerospace engineering at Cincinnati University, 1971- 79. He now heads an electronics firm called AIL Systems Incorporated in New York.
