RIP Neil.

Whether you believed in the Moon Landing or not, nothing can take away from the fact that Neil was a true Patriot, a very Classy man and a gentleman to the end.
His achievements were astounding even before and after the Landing.
Total respect to him for that. What a legend.

Well maybe as a credit to having taken this picture, but the boot-print is Buzz Aldrin's.

Armstrong would doubtless have been uncomfortable with all the tributes. People who knew him said he was not a recluse, but he was a private man who quickly deflected credit to others. He described himself, more than once, as a "nerdy engineer." He often protested that while he and Aldrin made the first lunar landing, they merely piloted a mission made possible by thousands of others.



Too much hero worship the world over....that's one reason why people get inflated egos...

Too much credit taken by a few for the works of many (Rich people, famous people, royalty, etc...)

Too much basking in other's glow by association.

Sounds like Neil understood this...

He was no hero. There are no heros. Just people trying to do the right thing.

So, one of the greatest north-american simbols died... How patriotic.

50 years lying to everyone and still.....

But, who am I to judge?. If my country would ask me to do the same, I´ll do it. To lie to the whole world....

Well, farewell. I just hope you left the truth written somewhere so all of us could know it someday.

My dad worked for NASA, and the first moon landing was a very big deal at our house. He knew personally some of those who flew those missions. Any one saying that it was faked, with all due respect, is wrong. I personally got to sit in the "flying bedstead" (test bed the lunar lander) when I was about 7 years old. Not much security in those days!! Yes, we did indeed go to the moon. Multiple times. The conspiracy theory that we didn't really go is a slap in tha face to the thousands of people who helped get us there.
Sad that Armstrong is no longer with us. He was a humble person that kept to himself. A true American hero.

I wonder if he left a diary of how they faked the moon landing and how nobody was willing to exit the magnetosphere due to the extreme radiation...

I was in 6th grade when Neil made that famous first step for mankind. Our school had every TV set they owned turned to the station and the students were crammed into the few classrooms that had them. It was an exciting day.
I remember looking up at the moon that night and thinking that for the first time, if I wave up at the moon , someone is up there that could wave back at me. It was strange and exciting thinking about them way up there far from the earth.

Think bigger than that. Some day you will visit those footprints and take a photo with your cell phone.

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...

Probably because the history books have already reveal all that needs revealing huh? Did you think he was going to come out and say hey we faked that whole thing or did you think he would reveal exterterrestrial life as a reality? What big secret did you think Neil was keeping?

He saw rocks and dust and he had a great view of the earth. Aliens on the moon really?

Out of the twelve men who have walked on the moon, 4 are now dead.

If we don't go back there soon, within the next decade or two, there will be no living person among us who has walked on the moon.

This is why space research is so important. So that all future generations can actually talk to someone who has been there and not just have to hear stories about how one day long ago, moonwalkers walked amongst us.

RIP

Our newest heros will be those brave souls who venture forth to Mars and our exploration of the red planet. Neil opened the door, I dont think they will let it swing closed never to be opened again.
