Neil Armstrong: “I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer”

Neil Armstrong

“I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer, born under the second law of thermodynamics, steeped in steam tables, in love with free-body diagrams, transformed by Laplace and propelled by compressible flow.”

– Neil Armstrong
