Neil Armstrong's post-Apollo 11 life

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." 

That's Neil Armstrong, the very first man to walk on the moon.

Armstrong was on board Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969, when it made history as the first spacecraft to land on the moon. On top of being the first man to land a spacecraft there, he also became the first to step foot on its surface. 

As the world celebrates the 45th anniversary of that historic trip, we have to wonder — what happened to Neil Armstrong after he took that giant leap for mankind?
