In Memoriam: Neil Armstrong

"That's one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind."
Neil A. Armstrong, July 20, 1969

For Americans of a certain age, he was one of the stars of one of those "where were you when" moments.  Everyone who is probably mid 40's or older can remember where they were when Neil Armstrong stepped from a module of Apollo 11 onto the moon for the first time.

Today, we learned that the man who first stepped on the moon has passed away at the age of 82.

As a lifelong space enthusiast and lover of space exploration, I want to say thanks to Neil Armstrong for helping me dream.
