He was part of a mission that many doubt the veracity of (I do not), seems to merit placing in BAN.

Rock, Paper, Scissors... Neil.

R.I.P.

Quite a pioneer....RIP, rocket man.....


quite a lengthy article here:

On July 20, 1969, half a billion people -- a sixth of the world's population at the time -- watched a ghostly black-and-white television image as Armstrong backed down the ladder of the lunar landing ship Eagle, planted his left foot on the moon's surface, and said, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."

If Chuck Norris had a hero, it'd be Neil Armstrong.

It's truely sad - my condolecences for his family


In my eyes he was the only guy of the Apollo team who could have spoken out about the TRUE Apollo misson and its happenings one day. Some of his speeches already were quite mysterious. I do not believe the official Moon landing record and was hoping that Neil might reveal what he knows right before he leaves us. This can now no long be fulfilled...

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunwards I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds – and done a thousand things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there,

I’ve chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air,

Up, up the long delirious burning blue

I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

Where never lark, or even eagle, flew;

And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of god.

May the Moon shine extra bright this evening, for you even more so than any Saint helped unite the entire planet, if even just for a forenight.

Maybe, just maybe he wanted to write the true story.

Maybe he is sitting comfortably in a deep secure facility, young as he was when he landed that day.

Maybe just maybe..

Anyhow R.I.P!

We all are off your neck from now on i guess.

On the contrary. Perhaps those he was hoping to inspire will continue to find those things which are yet to be discovered. In fact, some of them may well be doing so right now. Here is the full text of his address to them.


Thank you, Mr. Vice President, Mr. President, members of Congress, fellow astronauts, ladies and gentlemen.

Wilbur Wright once noted that the only bird that cold talk was the parrot, and he didn't fly very well. So I'll be brief. This week America has been recalling the Apollo program and reliving the memories of those times in which so many of us here, colleagues here in the first rows, were immersed. Our old astrogeology mentor, Gene Shoemaker, even called in one of his comets to mark the occasion with spectacular Jovian fireworks. And reminding us once again of the power and consequence of celestial extracurricular activities.

Many Americans were part of Apollo, about one or two in each thousand citizens, all across the country. They were asked by their country to do the impossible--to envisage the design and to build a method of breaking the bonds of earth's gravity and then sally forth to visit another heavenly body. The principal elements--leaving earth, navigating in space and descending to a planet unencumbered with runways and traffic control--would include major requirements necessary for a space-faring people.

Today a space shuttle flies overhead with an international crew. A number of countries have international space programs. During the space age we have increased our knowledge of our universe a thousand-fold.

Today we have with us a group of students, among America's best. To you we say we have only completed a beginning. We leave you much that is undone. There are great ideas undiscovered, breakthroughs available to those who can remove one of the truth's protective layers. There are many places to go beyond belief. Those challenges are yours--in many fields, not the least of which is space, because there lies human destiny.

May his memory continue to inspire.
