The first man on the Moon, Neil Alden Armstrong, passed away today at the age of 82.
We will miss you, Neil, you and all that you stood for.
It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.
— Neil Alden Armstrong, 1930-2012
We’ll have to agree to disagree on whether you were a giant or not, Mr. Armstrong, but point taken.
