Armstrong grants rare interview to Australian CPA's

 Screen grab from an interview with Dr. Neil Armstrong, conducted by Alex Malley, CEO of the Certified Practicing Accountants of Australia. The full interview is posted on the organization's website, [CPA Australia].

Legendary astronaut Neil Armstrong, who was the first person to walk on the moon, has surprised the media establishment by granting a rare and comprehensive interview to an unexpected interviewer: the Certified Practicing Accountants of Australia.

Armstrong sat down with the CEO of CPA Australia, Alex Malley, to discuss everything from his time flying fighter planes in the Korean War to the subject he's asked about most: his 1969 mission to the moon.

Armstrong has been careful about which public appearance requests he accepts and has not given many interviews in recent years.

In 2009, his wife, Carol, told the Washington Post that her husband averaged about 10 interview requests per month and rejected all of them.

"I think he thinks it's all been said before," she told the paper.

That may be so, but space enthusiasts will still find his latest account of the Apollo 11 mission fascinating.
