Neil Armstrong has died
Rest in peace, Mr. Armstrong...you did well. :patriot:

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, has died, his family said Saturday. He was 82.

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures," Armstrong's family said in a statement obtained by CNN affiliate WKRC.

Armstrong underwent heart surgery this month.

"While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves," his family said.

"For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

2. Making giant leaps from star to star now.

Or so I like to imagine.

Just read in his wiki that he got his flight certificate at age 15, before he got his driver's license.

It's such a gift when someone identifies his passion at a young age AND gets to reach the utmost pinnacle of that field.
