Micheal Collins may have not set foot on the moon, but he orbited it from the command

module he operated during the mission.

There's also a google doodle today that you should watch and describes his story in his own

words.

I saw a live interview with Astronaut Collins where he said emphatically that Armstrong was the perfect choice to be the first human to walk on the moon, because he always said "we" did it, not "I" did it.
