That's One Small Step for Man, One Great Loss for Mankind

A great man, and a great loss.

Neil Armstrong has passed away.

A naval aviator and test pilot, he was also the first human being to set foot upon the moon. 

Millenia may pass and space travel to other worlds might be a matter of common occurrence, but it was the United States who did it first in July of 1969, and this guy was the one first toeing the silica of the lunar surface.

Unbelievably unassuming, Neil Armstrong leaves behind a galactic achievement.

People who say we don't have heroes, just don't know where to look.
