    Always wanted to be an astronaut when I was a kid. There was nothing cooler. Its a shame what happened to the space program and that we have to hitch a ride with the Russians now.

    Aye that; before MIB, there were the Men in Silver. Guys with character you could set your watch to. No hippies in blue jeans and velour jackets.

    Rest in peace Mr Armstrong. Few get to do something that is truly legendary in the history of mankind.

    One of the greatest photos ever.

    Echo the above ^^. True legend. Humble hero. Going up in those "tin cans" as Bowie called them took cojones of steel. Don't make them like him anymore.

    RIP to a brave explorer.

    I titled my high school graduation speech "One Small Step, One Giant Leap."

    As a kid in the 60s, I was a space junkie. Still remember being in Yankee Stadium for a Yankee game when the P.A. announcer interrupted the game to let everyone know the Eagle had touched down on the moon. What amazing times these were.

    Rest in Peace, Neil Armstrong. Truly, a pioneer.

    Me and my older brothne were huge space fans back in the late 60s, still remember his scrap book with the Mercury and Gemini photos, Ed White's spacewalk, Gus Grissom dying in Apollo1, Frank Borman in Apollo 8 orbiting the moon.

    Remember how bummed I was because the landing and walk on the moon, July 20, 1969, was the day AFTER my birthday, always thought that would have been cool if it had been ON my birthday.

    Man, what a true American pioneer.

    RIP, Sir.

    Really sucks to hear this. Neil, for being the first man to ever walk on the moon and one of the few men in the world to have done this, was such an incredibly humble individual. To bad they don't make them like this anymore.
