"Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed."
That is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind ~Neil Armstrong, Moon July 20, 1969
When I was 22, I watched Neil Armstrong place the first of many American Astronauts footprints on the that beautiful pearl in the sky, the moon. A feat 43 years later no other nation has been able to duplicate. My Grandfather who was 93, watched with me and my family in amazement and pride at America's milestone technological achievement.
NASA's comments on the death of Neil Armstrong can be found here.
My feelings are mixed, saddened by the loss of a hero whose missions I watched and exploits I followed as a teen and my anger is boiling over at how Obama has ravaged NASA
