Neil Armstrong Died Today At Age 82

First Man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong has passed away today at the age of 85.

Commander of the famous Apollo Eleven mission in July 1969, he and fellow astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin spent three hours out on the lunar surface.  Most famous for his quote "one giant leap for mankind."

I for one wish him Godspeed.
