Neil Armstrong has passed away.

Sad news this Saturday afternoon: Neil Armstrong has passed away at age 82. Those of you too young to remember, Mr. Armstrong, as commander of Apollo 11, was the first man to step foot on the surface of the Moon back in July of 1969.

Many of us were glued to our TV sets when this took place:

Rest in peace Mr. Armstrong.

John Glenn & the other Mercury astronauts were my boyhood heroes. Neil Armstrong was the hero of my adolescence; I spent many hours in the back yard with a pair of binoculars, studying the moon. ANYTHING seemed possible, back then.

Rest in peace, sir.
