(AP) — Was the walk on the moon one small step for man, or a man?

Neil Armstrong’s first words from the moon were heard all over Earth, and Earth heard this:

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

But Armstrong said immediately after the 1969 landing that he had been misquoted. He said he actually said, “That’s one small step for `a’ man.” It’s just that people just didn’t hear it.
