What a relief!

I always felt bad about Neil Armstrong's supposedly screwed-up quote when he took his first step on the Moon - but it turns out, due to new audio analysis, he did not drop the "a" after all: he did, in fact, say:

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

Read the interesting story of why it sounds like the "a" is missing, and how they discovered it. I feel so much better now, and I'm sure Neil Armstrong does too!
