Armstrong follows the life and times of an extraordinary figure in American history, recounting Armstrong’s near-death experiences both as a Navy fighter pilot in Korea (flying from the decks of the USS Essex aircraft carrier) and as a test pilot back on the home front (flying the X-15 and other experimental aircraft). The documentary also captures the intense drama of the Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 missions as well as dizzying challenges that followed in the turbulent wake of global fame.
