Thank you for an awesome moment Mr. Armstrong and the bravery it took to do it. I wonder what wonderful things you are learning about it all now. One step, now the next step.

No WAY!

I just saw this and nearly welled up in tears.

Neil was the perfect guy to be the 1st to walk on the moon. He was a true professional and cool under fire. Buzz while still professional insisted on holding a brief mass after they landed and everything was secure. Neil saw during the decent of Apollo 11 that they were going into a boulder field and over shot their intial target. Neil calmly took over manual control (the stick) and with fuel burning past the abort point of no return found a spot to land and brought the Eagle down with 5 seconds of fuel left. He never panicked Gene later said there was nothing more to do than count out the fuel remaining. I doubt Apollo 11 would have been such a success without Neil.

Post flight Neil could have cashed in big time but he didn't even author a book, instead he took a teaching job in Ohio near where he grew up and tried to live a quiet normal life even as his marriage ended in divorce and he struggled with being the 1st man to walk on the moon.

My favorite reminices of Neil come from the book "At the edge of Space" written by Milt Thompson. Milt paints a picture of a calm test pilot under extreme circumstances testing new hardware. It was in the X-15 program Neil became worthy of being the 1st man to walk on the moon.

God speed Neil Armstrong. I hope your soul finds the peace it has been looking for the past 40 years.

He looked good up until he had a heart attack about a year or 2 ago.

RIP....Mr. Armstrong.

He was born about 45 minutes to an hour from Toledo in Wapakoneta, Ohio.

My grandparents on my mom's side lived close to Wapakoneta and I went to the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum located there a few times when I was growing up.

I saw him once in a Cracker Barrel near Cincinnati and he seemed like a really nice guy.

RIP Mr. Armstrong:

"I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer -- born under the second law of thermodynamics, steeped in the steam tables, in love with free-body diagrams, transformed by Laplace, and propelled by compressible flow." - Neil Armstrong

It was cool....I didn't want to bug him while he was eating, but he and his group were milling around in the store portion of the restaurant for a few minutes when they were done eating and I shook his hand and thanked him for his service to our country and he was very gracious and polite.

I know he lived down near Cincinnati in a burb of Nati called Indian Hill, Ohio.

I looked it up after I met him and saw that he lived down there.

He lived in Ohio ever since he left NASA. He just wanted to live a small town life and teach. For a man who had the world at his feet he never once cashed in on his achievement.

An American hero. Great if kids want to grow up like Neil and therefore strive with booksmarts instead of going for sports. Neil did everything from astronaut to teaching and being one of the best trumpet players when his arms weren't getting stretched. Oh, I wish I wasn't on my phone so I could post pictures today! Thanks Armstrong!

Yep, he was truly the definition of a Humble Hero ... Thanks Neil!
