He was a huge Reds, btw. R.I.P.
Of course I have no personal connection to him, but this is one of those public figure deaths that feels like a punch to my stomach. Sad to hear.
500 years from now, he will be the most referenced person that lived during our lifetimes.
Rest in Peace, Neil Armstrong
Wow. Just heard a story on NPR about his museum in Wapakoneta. They never mentioned that he was ill or had surgery. He was supposedly very private and eschewed the publicity from being the first man on the moon
You dont know how much guts it takes to be shipped to a rock that they are not 100% sure they can get you back.....
RIP Mr. Armstrong and am sorry what has become of the space program.
R.I.P Niel Armstrong, a true pioneer. This is a true story, I once got to go through his wallet.
RIP Neil Armstrong. A brave, brave man.
The only reason anyone had ever heard of my town. RIP Neil.
A true hero -- an American hero and a hero to all mankind.
I wish I had been alive to see his moonwalk happen, because, at this rate, I'm guessing I'll never see anything even close to that amazing in my lifetime.
RIP Mr Armstrong
Nice piece from the NY Times' Bats blog about John Glenn's tribute to Armstrong while in Cleveland to throw out a first pitch honoring the 50th anniversary of his own flight in 1962. I didn't know Glenn and Ted Williams flew together in Korea.
