the film seems to want viewers know about the heart rates of the astronauts in different stages of the flight. I too was surprised how much Armstrong's pulse rate was affected -- stress and anxiety? All three astronauts were born in 1930, so same age and under 40 years old in 1969:
We have some heart rates for Neil Armstrong during that powered descent to the lunar surface. At the time the burn was initiated, Armstrong's heart rate was 110. At touchdown on the lunar surface he had a heart rate of 156, and the heart rate is now in the 90s.
We have a report on the launch heart rates now from the flight surgeon. Commander Neil Armstrong, 110; Command Module Pilot Mike Collins, 99; Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, 88.
