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.

Look up to the sky this night. We all will see a new bright star shining with an unsual steady light that was not there yesterday.

We have one less hero walking on earth. Rest in peace great man.

This is an unfortunate day for man, one giant miss for mankind.

That's not how stars work.

Or rather, it statistically happens all the time.
