Passing of Neil Armstrong

By August 26, 2012

Follow me on:

The world lost a great hero on Saturday. Astronaut Neil Armstrong passed away at the age of 82.

His death came somewhat suddenly, arising from complications with a cardiovascular procedure.

Armstrong was a quiet, private man, who was content to live outside of the spotlight after his historic Moon landing. But it was he and his fellow astronauts that inspired a nation, and indeed the world, to dream that mankind was capable of making the impossible, well, possible.

Stay tuned to this space; I'll have more on Armstrong, including a piece on how it was the likes of him who inspired a nation to greatness.
