Neil Armstrong

What a horrible coincidence, Neil Armstrong died today. He helped us all dream. Those who watched the moon landing at the time will know what I mean.

An Armstrong we can be proud of.

Very sad news. :(

The man who symbolised the greatness the human race is capable of.

PS: If we could perhaps correct the spelling of his name.

My 13th birthday was the day they launched. One of my first heroes. RIP

Neil Armstrong and the other astronauts of that time were incredibly brave and inspiring people.

A sad day. Courtesy of krebs303, maybe Neil Armstrong will finally get to ask Mr. Gorsky if he did manage to cash in on his wife's promise.
