RIP Neil. You were and will continue to be an inspiration.

I'm still amazed every time I look up at the moon and think we – as a species – have been there.

It might have been one small step for man, but your death is a giant loss for mankind.

Oh come on - he wasn't famous for anything special, so it's easy to get him mixed up with someone else........

Now that really makes me really sad.

As a child the most incredible thing to me was the idea that we'd been in space and to the moon, with the solar system and the further galaxy there to be explored.

I had huge hopes about where we would have been when I turned 40 and how I would not have believed how far we'd come since those first steps.

I turn 40 in 2 months time from now and really we've gone no further since before I was born.

Part of my dream has passed along with Neil Armstrong.

One of my heroes.

RIP

No word on if Elvis is still alive and drug free though...even Mythbusters has limits.

RIP Neil - an inspiration to all humanity now and forever.

Iv'e commented on Armstrong (Neil not Lance) on other threads, Great and humble man. If Elvis is still alive I suppose the moon is a good place to look.

What about the equally sad demise of Louise Clarke yesterday, one of the original co-founders of Pans People? Remember them, Deano?

The demise of a Pan's People founder ranks alongside the death of Neil Armstrong?

Yes I can see your point............
