In the News "Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday, weeks after heart surgery and days after his 82nd birthday on Aug. 5. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of 'one giant leap for mankind'. He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin." Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Such a great man. The world lost a true legendary hero today. This man will be an inspiration for generations to come.

Not sure I would like to be shot in to space using 1960's technology, walk around on the moon and then fly back.

There are thousands of scientists for every astronaut, but many more astronauts died in accidents than scientists did.

When a scientist makes an error he or she doesn't die, someone else does.
