Just saw on the news feeds that Neil Armstrong has passed away at the age of 82.
I wasn't around when Mr. Armstrong took his 'One small step'...but being born in the 70's, I'm a child of the space age, and Mr. Armstrong will go down in history with the likes of Columbus.
I can't believe that he ever thought when he died we would have less of a space program NOW than we did back then, and that American Astronauts would have to bum a ride to space on other countries rockets.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Armstrong. You deserve all the praise that will be heaped on your memory in the days ahead.
