Neil Armstrong, 82
Anyone who has read anything of this blog knows that I am a total space nerd. It probably stems from the fact that my mom propped me up in front of the TV, as a 3 month old, to watch Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. Yep, that event drilled space exploration geekdom into my small undeveloped brain, and it has only grown since.
So, it was a bit of a shock when I read that one of my heroes died today. Neil Armstrong, the first human being in history to ever step foot on an extraterrestrial body has died. And I am sad.
God Speed Neil Armstrong.
