RIP Neil Armstrong
 
Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon, and the commander of the Apollo 11 mission, died today at 82 in a hospital in Columbus, Ohio from complications after undergoing surgery Tuesday to relieve blocked coronary arteries.

Rest in Peace.

One man who can't say he hasn't gone anywhere interesting in his lifetime.

Truly a hero not only for America but for the entire human race as well. Godspeed, Mr. Armstrong.

Q 08-26-2012 02:13 PM

He was reserved, laid-back and easy-going, which seems atypical for one of the best test pilots who ever lived. A very likable, intelligent guy.

R.I.P. :(

Darth Avlectus 08-26-2012 03:04 PM

So long, mystery man of the moon. Astronaut. Good man.

Fare thee well, and Godspeed indeed! :patriot:

He will forever be revered as one of the greatest in US history. Rest in Peace Mr. Armstrong. :patriot:

Surely you mean human history? ;)

RIP, space cowboy.

A legend has left us. :(

R.I.P. Mr. Armstrong, you will always be remembered.

Actually, it's "This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." :lol:

Sithspecter 08-27-2012 01:26 PM

Actually, that was what he was supposed to say. He thought that he said exactly that, and then NASA thought that static had cut it out. But, after reviewing the tapes, both NASA and Armstrong determined that he must've left the "a" out.

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

:| grammar nazis

Besides, last time I heard that statement was watching Apollo 13, and I watched that last about 5 years ago :P

Astor 08-27-2012 03:58 PM

Well, whatever he was supposed to say, the death of such a humble man is one giant loss for mankind.

RIP.

thejman217 08-27-2012 07:27 PM

Rest in peace, Mr. Armstrong.

RIP.

Well said. An inevitable one, sadly.

Dread Advocate 08-27-2012 09:00 PM

He'll be missed. But now he can walk among the stars forever.

To add a bit of humor to this (not his death, mind you; I'm not that sick):

When Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, as well as making his famous "One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Mankind" statement, he followed it with several other remarks - usual communication traffic between him, the other astronauts and Mission Control. Then, before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."

Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut; however, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years, many people had questioned Armstrong about what the "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky" statement meant, but he always just smiled and didnít reply.

On July 5, 1997, in Tampa Bay, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong. He finally responded.

It seems that Mr. Gorsky had finally died and so Armstrong felt he could answer the question: "When I was a kid, I was playing baseball with my brother in the backyard. He had hit a fly ball which landed in front of my neighbors' bedroom window. The neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky. As I leaned down to pick up the ball, I heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, "Oral sex? Oral sex you want? You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"

M@RS 08-27-2012 11:41 PM

^ Haha! Classic.

I met him once when I was a young kid. I'm pretty sure I was hyperventilating, I was so excited. He made some comment about dreams, but I don't really remember that part. :p

Um, wow. Thats one of the most funny and amazing things that I've ever read.

Hate to be a killjoy...

Funny, nonetheless.

Pretty funny. R.I.P. to the original "moonwalker".

This deserves its own meme.
