Neil Armstrong’s Life Insurance Paid for by Creativity
Prior to the departure of Apollo 11, Armstrong wanted to purchase Life Insurance to have his family financially protected should something go wrong with the mission. In 1969 an astronaut was making roughly $17,000 annually. Life Insurance at the time cost roughly $50,000 (over $300,000 in today’s dollars). Armstrong became creative and spent time prior to departure signing hundreds of autographs. These autographs were then mailed out on July 16, 1969 – date stamped for the mission’s success … or failure. These autographs are now known as “Apollo Insurance Covers”.
