Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, passed away yesterday.
Some relevant videos:
I also highly recommend the HBO series From the Earth to the Moon (I’ve got it on DVD), the part about the Eagle landing is available online.
The Big Picture: Remembering Apollo 11.
“For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”
