Just read this on BadAstronomy Blog...

Neil Armstrong has died aged 82. Dr Plait states it more eloquently than me.

Yes a legend and an incredibly brave man.

I liked the statement from the family too.

Quote
“For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”

The man who inspired a generation and took us from homo sapiens terrestrialis to homo sapiens cosmos.

I like that phrase. Long may he live in our collective memory.
