Rest In Peace

“Look tonight at the moon. And think of Neil Armstrong, reluctant hero, the quiet man whose footsteps still rest upon the moon and in history.” –Dan Vergano, USA TODAY

I don’t know how many of you have heard about this, but Neil Armstrong the first man to set foot on the moon died today. He was 82 years old. Armstrong had heart surgery several weeks ago, and a statement from his family said he died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures.

He was a great man who left his tracks not only on the Moon but on the history of mankind.

Here is an online memorial to Neil Armstrong – please feel free to light a virtual candle or send virtual flowers – Click here.

Rest in Peace Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

   “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

~Neil Armstrong (1969)

        You’re quite right! 🙂 it was a good period, at the same time, the first unmanned spaceship went to Mars, and went in orbit, everything seems possible, today is not quite the same, I guess we have to deal with our planet’s problems before thinking going elsewhere…

    Aye, had heard he was having complications, and then read yesterday about his death 😦 Very sad. Great and inspiring laddie he was. Miss him. Another hero in the world of science.

  3. Nice post Zahra. I sometimes think about these individuals that shaped history. It makes one realise just how much can be achieved in a life. I wonder if there is a little kid out there somewhere who will go onto to be another history maker like Mr Armstrong?
