    Neil Armstrong

    The reason for choosing Armstrong to be the First

    Washington D.C., U.S.
    Monday Apr 14, 1969

    A press conference on April 14, 1969, gave the design of the LM cabin as the reason for Armstrong's being first; the hatch opened inwards and to the right, making it difficult for the lunar module pilot, on the right-hand side, to exit first.
