RIP Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong, first human to set foot on another world, has died aged 82 following heart surgery.

We all die but few of us leave behind footprints in the Lunar regolith. Since I discovered today that one of my relatives is a Moon landing doubter (yet has no trouble with believing in talking snakes), I’ll mention that the Apollo team also left behind a radar reflector that is still used to precisely measure the Earth-Moon separation.

One of my earliest memories is of watching the Moon landing on television. That accomplishment had a profound effect on my whole life. A final goodbye, then, to Neil Armstrong, a real hero to me, the US, and the world.
