Neil Armstrong: The Flight Research Center Years

http://www.nasa.gov/...home/index.html

Famed Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, was an engineering research test pilot at the NACA High-Speed Flight Station, later the NASA Flight Research Center, at Edwards from 1955 through 1962. This video recalls some of the many contributions he made to aerospace research during his seven-year stint at the center before he was selected for NASA's astronaut corps.

Sadly, after he walked on the Moon he knew NASA wouldn't let him do anything else, he was now a "Hero". I recall seeing him talk to someone once about wishing he could go back and undo that accomplishment. While it was the high point of his career it was also the end of it. Fame is a double edged sword.
