USAToday is reporting that the first man to walk on the moon has died.
It is a sad day.
Neil Armstrong passed away
RIP to a true American hero
One small step for man. One giant leap for mankind.
You will be missed Neil.
Dang. I did a report on the Apollo missions a few years back. This is terrible news
One of my heroes..RIP Neil
Rip neil. American hero
Sad, my elementary school was named after Neil. He will be missed!
From someone who grew up in his hometown (Wapakoneta). He turned his celebrity back on our community. Why should I have a good word for someone that treats people with disdain.
No one said you had to?
The man wanted his privacy and not to be worshipped. He was a true hero in a world that seems to have lost the meaning of the word.
This is sick. A man died and you are turning your back to whole thing? You're no better than him.
Nothing heroic about him. He did not build the rocket he went for a ride. He did not build the suit, he just wore it. He did not create the moon, just walked on it. Anyone could have done the exact samething he did. He just got the seat.
And exactly how brave do you need to be to put your trust in all those people, to fly to another world, to walk on it and to believe you're coming home again afterwards? Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins knew there was every chance it was a one way trip. Look at Apollo 13. If that accident had happened after a moon landing, they would be dead.
Those astronauts had balls and that makes them heroes in my eyes.
Gawker posted this screen capture, bad bad mistake:
Talk about good reporting
Lol at anyone can do it. Yeah anyone can be an astronaut.
If you fancy a go yourself, you can get in touch with NASA here. Let us know how you get on.
Not enough of a challenge, I expect.

Sad day indeed. May his soul rest in peace. Innovator, Technologist and a true gentleman.
You do know who we are talking about...right? You have looked at or read any of the screen shots or quotes from news outlets?
I think, er hope, he was being sarcastic
Such irony from such a clear space cadet
Not withstanding the fact these guys had to fly craft at speeds and in places pretty much unexplored. Oh and they had to be in superb physical condition. And to have courage and nerve beyond compare. And be able to calculate angles of trajectory, periods of engine burn, yaw pitches etc etc
What have you ever done with your life? He was the first man on the moon. Match that, son.
