For those who weren't aware, Neil Armstrong has died. Rest In Peace Neil. Among the
greatest of astronauts, if not arguably the best. Think of his efforts when you look at
the moon again.

Sad news. I worked with his son Mark at WebTV back in the early 2000s. Neil Armstrong was my hero as a child. I wanted to be an astronaut like him for the longest time when I was little.

Yeah, just saw the news myself. This was a man who made distant worlds seem a little bit nearer.

I was very sad when I saw this on the news early this morning
Rest in peace Neil.

His family has asked that next time we are out on a clear night, to look up at the moon and think of Neil.

I think that's the best way to acknowledge the passing of a truly great man.
