Neil Armstrong went down in history as the first person on the moon, but it was the personal sacrifices and challenges along his journey that most interested the makers of movie "First Man". "First Man," opening worldwide this week, places audiences inside the bone-rattling, deafening, claustrophobic cockpits inhabited by Armstrong and his fellow astronauts in the risky early days of the U.S. space program. Armstrong's personal life held its own terrors, screenwriter Josh Singer discovered during three years of research, including a daughter who died at age 2 .Set between 1961 and '69, "First Man" covers the X-15 hypersonic flight tests, and the sometimes fatal Gemini and early Apollo missions preceding the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing.
