Neil Armstrong: First Man On The Moon Dead

Neil Armstrong, the first man on the Moon has died.

The U.S. astronaut and commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft was 82-years-old.

Earlier this month he had surgery to relieve blocked coronary arteries.

Neil set foot on the Moon on 20 July, 1969, and famously described the event as “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Along with fellow astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, the duo spent over two hours walking on the moon together.

Last November, Neil and three other astronauts received the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest U.S. civilian award.

Our deepest condolences go out to Neil‘s friends and family during this difficult time.

    The word legend is thrown around so free willingly now.

    RIP Good Sir

    My daddy was a space man (engineer) at the Cape from Shepard to the moon. I have wonderful childhood memories of watching launches from my backyard and of my dad bringing home signs that demanded Zero Defects – especially after the horrible Apollo 1 fire.
    Kudos to those who did such a magnificent job with our space program and may Neil Armstrong always be remembered as the brilliant, brave and modest man he was.
