Speed Reading — Moon Landing - Level 4 — 200 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

We will have a chance to buy a piece of space exploration history. Neil Armstrong's collection of mementos will be auctioned. Mr Armstrong was the first person to walk on the moon. Items from that lunar landing will go on sale, including a US flag and astronauts' medals. The auction house said the sale will be popular. It said: "Space is one of the very, very few categories that every single person seems to be interested in....They are fascinated by it."

Neil Armstrong kept his space souvenirs in his house. His son said his father never talked about what to do with them. He said: "He did save all the items, so he obviously felt they were worth saving." His sons decided to auction the items to share their father's legacy. They restored many of the items. They also said it was difficult to identify some things because there were not many people alive who were connected to the Apollo 11 mission.
