Amherst auction house RR Auction in New Hampshire, will soon be accepting bids on space and aviation artifacts that include an EKG of Neil Armstrong. The auction will run from May 16 to May 23 and Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong’s EKG from when he first stepped on the moon will be one of the top items up for bid.

Over 85 Apollo 11 items will be on the auction block including the joy stick controller that was used by Michael Collins, the pilot of the mission. Armstrong was one cool cookie as he stepped on the moon as his electrocardiogram registered a normal heartbeat. Armstrong was the first human to step on the moon and uttered the famous phrase, ‘One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’.
