First Lance Armstrong, now this? How sad! I guess he was getting up there, being 82 and all. RIP. _________________ I'm 24 years old and live in WA State. I was diagnosed with Asperger's at 9.

I'm not American, but of course I recognise the achievement he was part of. It is sad that the significance of his works seems to have dwindled in recent years. I respect his accomplishments both in space and on Earth _________________ Read, comment, learn, enjoy:

He made the leap all mankind must make someday......R.I.P.....
Thanks for that link, richie. So good that the Mars Curiosity mission happened before Neil's death so he knew. RIP, Neil Armstrong - you were truly a pioneer _________________ "Barn's burnt down, now I can see the moon." - Masahide, circa 1700. Haiku poetry.

For anyone who likes classical music and wants to dedicate a an hour or so of thoughts/prayers/well wishes to Neil Armstrong and his family.
Rest in Peace, Neil Armstrong. You are one of my heroes. May your life and legacy be remembered for your being humanity's first ambassador to worlds beyond our own. _________________ Your Aspie score: 127 of 200
