Who Said It: Neil Armstrong or Buzz Aldrin?

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr., was the second. Both were military pilots before their careers with NASA; both received honors and awards in the years after Apollo 11. And both have appeared in documentaries and TV shows. With all these similarities, how well can you tell Neil Armstrong's quotations from Buzz Aldrin's statements?

"...I told my wife that I'd just as soon be on a later flight because I didn't want all the press and all the attention for the rest of my life for being on the first landing."

"I was an outsider. I was the egghead from academia who got in because the rules had changed. While I looked for validation from my fellow contemporaries, I instead found jealousy and envy."
