Watching the character development and the differences between Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins it becomes clear why NASA focused on Neil to be their spokesman. Not that they all were not extremely smart and well spoken but Neil is portrayed to be the more charismatic one. The sub story of Neil's lost daughter is very sad and adds a very interesting human aspect to his accomplishments.
