Armstrong

When they were circling the moon just before the famous landing. he quoted from lthe book of Bereishis (Genesis) and said, " In the beginning G-d created the heaven and lthe earth and the earth was void and the spirit of G-d hovered above it."

I think you're confused.

Actually, it was the astronauts of the Apollo 8 who read from Breishis on 24 December 1984.

Reading from Genesis was genius

Interesting comment. Considering that this was the cold war, reminding the atheist Soviets that there is a G-d who created the world was genius and very appropriate. These days, if an astronaut were to read from the bible. people would be screamig "separation of religion and state, etc." and the ACLU would probably shoot him down with a missile.
