It was bound to be among the most popular items in the sale of space memorabilia at the Bonham's auction house in New York.

And, in the end, the document bearing Neil Armstrong's signature didn't disappoint. It was sold for $152,000.

Not a bad price for what some might describe as a simple piece of paper - except that besides the famous astronaut's signature, the document also has, in Mr Armstrong's handwriting, that famous phrase he coined:

"One small step for a man - one giant leap for mankind."
