On this Day...
In 1978, moonman Neil Armstrong lost a finger. He was working on his farm near Cincinnati, Ohio, when he jumped off his truck. His wedding ring caught on the door and tore his finger off. Fortunately, surgeons in Louisville, Kentucky, were able to stitch it back on again. It was, after all, one of the very few fingers that had been to the moon!
