First Man - biografia filmowa o Neilu Armstrongu. W rolę astronauty wcieli się Ryan Gosling. Reżyseria : Damien Chazelle.

Chazelle's "[point of view] based approach to the narrative will place audiences in the shoes of the early astronauts and show the challenges and sacrifices of the mission to the moon more clearly than ever before," according to the studio.

Josh Singer, who won the Academy Award for best original screenplay for the 2015 movie "Spotlight," is penning the script for "First Man." Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill, whose credits include the "Twilight" and "Maze Runner" franchises, are producing.

Została ustanowiona  nagroda imienia Neila Armstronga Neil Armstrong Award of Excellence.

Nagroda ma być przyznawana nowemu pokoleniu naukowców i inżynierów którzy wnieśli wybitny wkład w opracowanie technologii lub zaawansowanych systemów,  przy zachowaniu uczciwości i odwagi intelektualnej oraz wierności zasadom, które były bliskie Neilowi Armstrongowi i wszystkim astronautom, którzy polecieli w kosmos.

"Our Astronaut Scholars are among the brightest and most innovative men and women in the fields of engineering and science," said Rick Armstrong, son of the late moonwalker and a member of the Foundation's board of trustees.

"Dad believed strongly in the value of a strong education coupled with hard work, so I have no doubt that he would be enthusiastic about [recognizing] someone who not only shares those values but has gone on to achieve something amazing with that opportunity," he said.

21 czerwca 2018 w wieku 84 lat zmarła Janet Shearon Armstrong - pierwsza żona astronauty

Janet Shearon Armstrong 1934-2018



It is with great sadness that we share the news that on June 21, 2018, at the age of 84, Janet Shearon Armstrong lost her fierce-hearted battle with lung cancer. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend, and a wife of test pilot and astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Janet Elizabeth Shearon was born in Wilmette, Illinois, the youngest of three daughters of Dr. Clarence and Louise Shearon. A graduate of New Trier High School, she then attended Purdue University in the School of Home Economics and was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority. In 1956, Jan and Neil married and eventually settled in the San Gabriel Mountains on the outskirts of Lancaster, California. From their home in Juniper Hills, Jan could see her husband flying experimental aircraft at Edwards Air Force Base in the distance. Together, Jan and Neil would move to Houston, Texas for the NASA space program, and afterwards to Lebanon, Ohio. After 38 years of marriage, Jan and Neil divorced and she became a resident of Utah, spending time in Deer Valley as well as St. George. Everywhere she went, she forged lifelong friendships and frequently attended reunions for not only her high school graduating class, but her kindergarten class as well. In 1964, Jan was the founder and coach of the El Lago Aquanauts synchronized swimming team and remained a supporter and advocate throughout her lifetime. Additionally, she was a founding member of the KIT (Keep-In-Touch) group of astronaut wives that have remained close, to this day.

She is survived by two sons Rick and Mark, daughter-in-law Wendy; and also by 6 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren who knew her simply as "Cee Cee". Jan's second child and only daughter, Karen Anne "Muffie" Armstrong, died from a brain tumor at the age of 2 years, 9 months.

Janet received many awards and honors worldwide as a result of her courage and dedication during the American space program of the 1960s. By all that knew her, she will be remembered as a strong, willful woman that always reunited with a warm smile and parted ways with tears. We ask only that you honor her by standing up for that in which you believe.

Rodzina Neila Armstronga dostała od szpitala 6 mln dol. za milczenie? Media: Była tajna ugoda

24.07.2019 21:22
Jak donosi CNN, rodzina astronauty Neila Armstronga miała otrzymać 6 milionów dolarów od szpitala, w którym był leczony i zmarł astronauta. Powodem miały być dodatkowe okoliczności w związku ze śmiercią załoganta misji Apollo 11, których upublicznienia obawiał się szpital.

O szczegółach tajnej ugody poinformował New York Times kilka dni po 50. rocznicy lądowania człowieka na Księżycu. Neil Armstrong, bo o nim mowa, zmarł w 2012 r. Jego rodzina była przekonana, że powodem śmierci były powikłania po operacji pomostowania naczyń wieńcowych. By nie wzbudzać sensacji, krewni nigdy nie rozwodzili się w mediach na temat ostatnich dni Armstronga, które spędził w szpitalu Marcy Health, największej sieci opieki zdrowotnej w Ohio.

Jednak w dwa lata po śmierci astronauty jego dwaj synowie - Rick i Mark - rozpoczęli batalię sądową ze szpitalem. Oskarżyli placówkę o spowodowanie komplikacji sercowych i popełnienie szeregu poważnych błędów medycznych. Tego również rodzina nie nagłaśniała.

Tajna ugoda i duże pieniądze

Synowie Neila Armstronga zatrudnili specjalistę od chorób serca z Uniwersytetu Pensylwanii, który zapoznał się z liczącą ponad 5 tys. stron dokumentacją medyczną dotyczącą ich ojca. Lekarz stwierdził, że szpital nie tylko popełnił fatalne w skutkach błędy, ale również uznał, że Armstrong najprawdopodobniej nie potrzebował operacji pomostowania. Zmarł kilkanaście dni po niej.

    Wprawdzie Neil miał rozwiniętą chorobę wieńcową, ale nie było tutaj żadnej nagłej potrzeby

- napisał dr Joseph Bavaria w liście z 1 lipca 2014 r. do rodziny astronauty, dodając:

    Śmierci Neila można było uniknąć, gdyby zapewniono odpowiedni standard opieki

W ciągu następnych tygodni prawnicy Mercy Health mieli obawy, że synowie Armstronga będą mówić o leczeniu ich ojca w szpitalu w Fairfield w Ohio. Ostatecznie, w porozumieniu złożonym w sądzie spadkowym w hrabstwie Hamilton we wrześniu 2014 r., Marcy Health odparł zarzuty o zaniedbania, ale jednocześnie zgodził się zapłacić rodzinie Armstronga 6 milionów dolarów. W zamian jej członkowie zgodzili się milczeć o ostatnich dniach pierwszego człowieka na Księżycu.

W oświadczeniu skierowanym 23 lipca 2019 r. do CNN, który także opisał całą sprawę, przedstawiciele Mercy Health odmówili szczegółowych wyjaśnień, twierdząc jedynie, że są "rozczarowani publicznym charakterem sprawy".

Neil Armstrong: Mercy Health paid his family $6 million settlement after his death
Anne Saker  Cincinnati Enquirer Published 11:40 PM EDT Jul 23, 2019


Neil Armstrong in 2009 as he narrated Portrait of Lincoln accompanied by the Pops. The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, with Erich Kunzel conducting was joined by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir (360 voices strong) with Mack Wilberg conducting in performance at Riverbend Music Center. Armstrong died three years later. Enquirer file

When Neil Armstrong died Aug. 25, 2012, at Mercy Health Fairfield Hospital, his family simply attributed the cause to complications from coronary bypass surgery. A month later, the first man on the moon was buried at sea with military honors and the thanks of a grateful nation.

Armstrong’s family has never talked publicly about the astronaut’s last days in the hospital, largely to stay in harmony with how he lived. The modest, humble man from Wapakoneta, Ohio, shied from the spotlight in the decades after his flight aboard Apollo 11 and his July 20, 1969, walk on the lunar surface.

But this week, The Enquirer learned that for two years after Armstrong’s death, his two sons threatened a wrongful-death suit against Mercy Health, the largest hospital system in Ohio. They accused the Fairfield hospital of causing a heart complication and triggering a series of grave medical errors.

The Armstrong sons, Rick and Mark, hired a heart specialist at the University of Pennsylvania to review the medical record of more than 5,000 pages. The doctor concluded that not only were the hospital mistakes fatal, Armstrong most likely didn’t need the bypass surgery then.

“While Neil indeed had significant coronary disease, THERE WAS NO EMERGENCY here,” Dr. Joseph Bavaria wrote in a July 1, 2014, letter with capital letters for emphasis. “Neil’s death could have been avoided had the proper standard of care been provided.”

In the weeks after, Mercy Health officials worried that the Armstrong sons would talk about their father’s treatment at Fairfield, according to documents. Ultimately, in an agreement filed with Hamilton County Probate Court in September 2014, the hospital system said it did nothing wrong but agreed to pay the Armstrong family $6 million.

In return, the family agreed to be silent about the last days of the first man on the moon.

Details about the death and turmoil

This week, The Enquirer received an unsolicited package of documents that provides voluminous detail about Armstrong’s death and the turmoil that followed. This account is based on these documents and the probate court file.

The Enquirer reached out to members of the Armstrong family for comment Tuesday evening but didn't get any immediate replies. Armstrong's wife, Carol, told the New York Times: "I wasn't a part of it. I want that for the record." She told the Times that she signed off on the agreement because otherwise she would have been removed as executor.

Nanette Bentley, spokeswoman for the hospital system, issued a statement late Tuesday:

“Our commitment to patient privacy and dignity is a responsibility we take very seriously, and we are unable to discuss any individual or his or her care. The public nature of these details is very disappointing – both for our ministry and the patient’s family who had wished to keep this legal matter private.

"Our focus on advanced, high-quality, patient-centric care is a cornerstone of our ministry, and our commitment to our mission is unwavering – we extend the compassionate ministry of Jesus by improving the health and well-being of our communities and bring good help to those in need, especially people who are poor, dying and underserved. This is our promise to every patient who comes through our doors."

The settlement payout was filed in probate court and is a public document. But the package sent to The Enquirer included never-before-seen papers including the letter from Bavaria, vice chief of cardiothoracic surgery at Penn Medicine, which runs the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

The package also contained emails between the lawyers in the matter and internal Mercy Health memoranda on the opinions of two outside doctors who the hospital system asked to review the record. Those doctors said the treatment did meet the standard of care, and some decisions were judgment calls.

’Golf on back burner for a while’

On Aug. 5, 2012, Armstrong turned 82. James Hansen, author of the authoritative biography “First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong,” wrote in the book’s preface that Armstrong underwent the bypass surgery Aug. 6.

Hansen got an email from Armstrong on Aug. 11, which turned out to be his last to Hansen:

“I had checked into my gastro doc to check out an apparent reflux problem. It seemed an unlikely connection (for several reasons) but it turned out to be the right thing to do. We did a nuclear stress test leading to an angiogram, leading to a quad bypass. Recovery is going well but golf will be on the back burner for a while. Hope to be kicked out of the hospital in a day or two. My best, Neil.”

Blockage of a heart vessel can be treated with medication or surgery, depending on the patient’s overall condition. Armstrong chose the surgical procedure that reroutes blood around the heart.

At some point, likely after Armstrong’s Aug. 11 email to Hansen, the Fairfield heart-care team decided Armstrong needed a pacemaker to regulate his heart rhythm.

As part of the installation, temporary wires connected to the pacemaker protruded from Armstrong’s chest. Just hours later, as Armstrong recovered in a step-down unit, a nurse pulled out the wires. Bavaria pinpointed that action as triggering the cascade of complications.

“While the hospital records state that it was according to protocol, there was actually no compelling reason to pull them at that time especially with no surgeon around,” he wrote.

Making ‘THE wrong critical decision’

The pull tore the pericardium, the sac surrounding the heart, and blood filled the space, a phenomenon called a tamponade. Within 20 minutes, Armstrong was in trouble. Bavaria wrote, “The deterioration was fast.”

Another 27 minutes passed until Armstrong was taken to the cardiac catheterization lab to drain the blood from the sac. Armstrong improved a bit, then blood filled the sac again. He spent 20 minutes in the cath lab, blood pressure falling, kidneys failing. Then he was taken to the operating room.

Bavaria wrote: “There is NO STANDARD OF CARE ANYWHERE I KNOW OF where patients who are bleeding after an epicardial wire pull go to a cath lab. They ALL GO TO THE OPERATING ROOM DIRECTLY. ASAP. ANY OPERATING ROOM. This is a ‘code red or hot case.’ "

Bavaria concluded: “Going to the cath lab was THE critical wrong decision.”

An hour and 37 minutes after the epicardial wire pull, surgeons repaired the heart damage. But Armstrong’s brain had been starved of oxygen.

On Aug. 15, nine days after the bypass surgery and at least four days after the wire pull, hospital staff removed Armstrong’s breathing tube. He was not able to breathe on his own, so the tube was reinserted. “This did not help matters during a critical post anoxic brain injury phase,” Bavaria wrote.

Armstrong died 10 days later.

In December 2012, his last will and testament was filed in probate court. He left all personal effects to his wife Carol. He willed the rights to his voice, photograph and signature to the Purdue Research Foundation at Purdue University, his alma mater.

The case of ‘Ned Anderson’

In early July 2014, internal Mercy Health memoranda presented the conclusions of two doctors the hospital system had asked to review the case. The patient’s name was camouflaged as “Ned Anderson.”

Dr. Richard Salzano, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Yale Medical School, said the bypass surgery and pacemaker were appropriate. The wire pull probably caused “a little bleeding,” but Salzano believed the major damage came in the cath lab when doctors drained blood from the heart sac.

Salzano told Mercy Health that taking “Anderson” to the cath lab first was “defensible.” When things turned dire, the cath lab doctors could have cracked his chest right there, instead of moving into the operating room. Still, “The patient would likely have recovered if the OR had been the first option.”

Dr. J. Stanley Hillis, a cardiologist at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis, echoed Salzano. The memo said Hillis “ ‘didn’t really see anything that represented less than ideal practice,’ although he said that ‘some plaintiff’s expert’ may criticize the decision to do (the bypass) instead of treating the patient with medication for some period of time before operating.”

Seeking change at Mercy

During the investigation into a potential wrongful-death claim, Cincinnati lawyer Wendy Armstrong represented the Armstrong sons. She is married to Mark Armstrong.

On July 3, 2014, two days after receiving Bavaria’s review, Wendy Armstrong wrote to Nancy Lawson, Mercy Health’s lawyer with the Downtown Cincinnati firm Dinsmore & Shohl.

Wendy Armstrong noted that Mercy Health had a letter from the Cleveland Clinic, one of the nation’s leading heart hospitals, conveying the view that epicardial wire pulls could be dangerous: “In elderly patients, with co-morbidities, and with recent coronary artery bypass surgery, this often can lead to a fatal outcome.”

“We are confident that we would prevail should this case be decided in a legal forum,” Wendy Armstrong wrote. “If this matter becomes public, the resulting damage to your client’s reputation would come at a much greater cost than any jury verdict we can imagine. In a case such as this, we all know that the world will see and hear every detail of this case as it unfolds, not just those morsels the court deems admissible – the fact that a world hero lost his life at Mercy Fairfield will leave its mark in history.”

Wendy Armstrong asked Mercy Health for $7 million in damages. She said the Armstrong sons also wanted Mercy Health to adjust treatment of coronary patients. Her letter said:

“Create a procedural protocol so that never again will an epicardial wire be pulled when there is not a cardiothoracic surgeon and an operating room ready to receive a patient that experiences pericardial tamponade. No one should ever die in a hospital because a nonessential procedure was ordered and performed at a time when the hospital was not prepared for a known and potentially fatal complication.”

The letter asked for a speedy resolution since the Armstrong sons planned to attend festivities starting July 18 in Florida marking the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that took their father to the moon.

Anniversary becomes a deadline

On July 8, Lawson asked Wendy Armstrong. “Do Mark and Rick intend to discuss the wrongful death claim at the Kennedy Space Center if no settlement is reached by Friday July 18?”

Wendy Armstrong responded that the anniversary celebration would draw national news coverage, writing:

“Additionally, Rick and Mark have been solicited by several book writers and filmmakers for ‘information about Neil that no one already knows,’ who we know will be in attendance. Obviously, the information about this wrongful death claim would prove extremely useful to such projects, and the boys’ involvement would net a monetary gain far in excess of the demand that has been made for settlement."

But, she added, “They are more interested in a private resolution with the hospital that would serve to prevent avoidable deaths in the future. So if a settlement is reached by the 18th, there will certainly be no discussion about Neil’s death to anyone, ever.”

They reached a deal. By September 2014, lawyers for Carol Armstrong, the executor of the estate, file the settlement agreement. “Although the hospital and health care providers who provided care and treatment to Mr. Armstrong stand by their care and deny that any malpractice occurred, the hospital, on behalf of itself and the health care providers, agreed to pay a total of $6 million” to Armstrong’s two sons, sister, brother and six grandchildren.

Carol Armstrong did not receive any portion of the settlement. The law firm handling the estate, Taft Stettinius & Hollister, received $160,000 in fees and costs for handling the probate case. The settlement’s broad outlines were filed in probate court unsealed and required all the parties to keep the matter confidential.

Last year, Mercy Health merged with another Catholic hospital system from Maryland and now is known as Bon Secours Mercy Health.

This summer, the world commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission with recollections of the life of Neil Armstrong, many of them serious, some whimsical. At the Ohio State Fair, artists carved a tribute to the Ohio-born astronaut in his spacesuit saluting the U.S. flag, all out of butter.

50 Years Ago: Armstrong Celebrates Birthday in Quarantine
Aug. 5, 2019

Armstrong cuts up and distributes slices of his birthday cake.


Apollo 11 astronauts (left to right) Armstrong, Collins (partially hidden by Armstrong), and Aldrin participate in the birthday celebrations in the glass-enclosed crew conference room.

For the astronauts, being in quarantine in the LRL meant that their primary postflight activities, debriefs of their mission with management, would be conducted from inside a glass-walled conference room to maintain their biological isolation. The astronauts examined Columbia and retrieved personal items from the spacecraft that took them to the Moon and returned them safely to Earth. Inside the LRL, flight surgeon Dr. William R. Carpentier daily monitored the astronauts’ health, who showed no signs of any infections with lunar organisms.  Dr. Craig L. Fischer, Chief of the Clinical Laboratory, monitored the health of the other 20 personnel, including six additional employees who were brought into the quarantine due to breaches in the biological barrier in the sample processing area, none of whom showed any symptoms. From outside the LRL, Dr. Charles A. Berry, Director of Medical Research and Operations, and Dr. Walter W. Kemmerer, Chief of the Preventive Medicine Division, monitored the overall status of the quarantine. Two representatives from the World Health Organization visited and inspected the facility and declared it to be well-run and organized.

The astronauts’ routine was modified on Aug. 5, when workers in the LRL threw a surprise birthday party for Armstrong who turned 39 that day.

One Small Step: The Legacy of Neil Armstrong
Aug. 5, 2019



Born on August 5, 1930, Neil Armstrong would have been 89 years old today. During his lifetime, he was a man of many accomplishments and when he landed on the Moon, he walked into the history books. Armstrong changed the course of history as the commander of the Apollo 11 mission, landing humanity on another celestial body for the very first time and fulfilling President John F. Kennedy's goal of landing humans on the Moon by the end of the decade and returning them safely to Earth.

In this image, Armstrong trains in the lunar module simulator at Kennedy Space Center on June 19, 1969.

Wyjątkowo dziwna sprawa teraz wyciekła. Kilka różnych źródeł o tym informuje. Ciekawe, jak dalej się sprawa potoczy.
Oprócz trafienia do podręczników medycyny można spodziewać się wpływu przypadku Armstronga na zmianę procedur medycznych w szerszym wymiarze.
Ciekawe czy zastosowane procedury w tym konkretnym przypadku są typowe w większej ilości szpitali i to nie tylko w USA ?
Można rzec, że ostatnia misja Neila Armstronga  jeszcze się nie zakończyła.


Tajemnica okoliczności śmierci Neila Armstronga
27 LIPCA 2019

(...) Zastanawia jednak, że wdowa po Armstrongu Carol odmówiła przyłączenia się do pozwu przeciw szpitalowi – małej, prowincjonalnej placówce w Ohio. Obserwatorzy dziwili się, że astronautę położono właśnie tam, a nie w bardziej renomowanym szpitalu w tym stanie. Pieniędzmi z odszkodowania podzielili się synowie Armstronga, jego siostra, brat i sześcioro wnuków.

Pozwy o błąd w sztuce medycznej to w USA normalka, można nawet rzec: sport narodowy, ale odszkodowania są zwykle dużo niższe, średnia w ubiegłym roku to 145 tys. dol. Rodzina astronauty, która od dawna czerpie profity ze sławy narodowego bohatera, nie omieszkała skorzystać z okoliczności jego śmierci. Zabrzmiało to nieprzyjemnie, jako że zmarły był człowiekiem skromnym. Ze sławy sam nie czerpał tyle co przeważająca większość jego kolegów z programu Apollo. (...)
