Neil Armstrong, the first man to land on the moon, has passed away — how sad.

Neil Armstrong died on Saturday, Aug. 25, after undergoing heart surgery earlier this month.

Neil was on the Apollo 11 spacecraft, which landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. At the time of his landing, Neil echoed back to Earth, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

More details to come.

He lived a long and fruitful life. To be able to say you have walked on another planet is more than awesome. My condolences to his family

The lyrics of REM could’ve said it better, “If you believe, they put a man on a moon”. That is exacly what Neil Armstrong did. I call it the icon of NASA. Rest in peace and I will remember the historic event.

Why do you say @so sad” because he died? You must not have any faith !! He was 82 I would say he lived a long & full life. Now people with faith realize he is lucky !! He’s in a far better place now !! Much better than he was when he was alive here on earth. Instead of saying @so sad”, we should be saying, “Lucky dog”. You gotta have faith, faith, faith just a little faith !!!

You are right, and at the same time we are “sadden”= A Human reaction, we are sadden that he is no longer among us, Unless, of course, if he had dementia….
My condolences to his family.
