Thank you Neil. Thank you for all you have done. RIP
One of my favorite stories about Neil Armstrong was when one day, Neil was testing out a LEM (Lunar Excursion Module) prototype called the LLRV (Lunar Landing Research Vehicle), the thing exploded and fell to the ground and burst into glames. Luckily though, Neil ejected just in time. Later, either Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin or Jim Lovell heard the news and went go find Neil, who was sitting in an office filling out paperwork. Aldrin (or Lovell) goes to Neil and says "You almost died! For heavens and you're just sitting here casually!" And there's Neil, sitting down at his desk doing paperwork and just nods it off and says "There's paper work to fill out" What a badass!

Kinda sad that we lost him. I still think they should erect a statue of him since he was the 1st man to walk on the moon. He is a modern day Columbus of you think about it. And I know the landing was not hoaxed. After all we have proof that it wasn't.

I adore the fact that, for the rest of its existence, the moon will have a set of footprints on it belonging to that wonderful, wonderful man and his team. No ceremony, monument or statue can be greater then those simple prints in the unmoving dirt. Its really quite an extraordinary way to remember a person, but it'll last a lot, lot longer then other monuments to people.
