    Neil Armstrong

    Postby ULFsurfer » 25 Aug 2012 14:57

    News are that he passed away today.. :(

    I was a friend of Neil.
    He has given so many people like me the inspiration to pursue a degree and career in science and technology.
    In my humble opinion, the Moon landings have been the most spectacular thing we humans have ever done.
    It was a magic experience watching him in person at House of Representatives about 9 months ago where he gave a first hand tale of the landing in 1969.

    Rest in Peace

    I have just read it. One of my childhood heroes has passed away. I will remember him every time I look at the moon.

    RIP Neil. This was a real shame to hear. Hopefully we can get someone back soon, and maybe in the next few decades, to Mars.

    I just read this here today. Such a brave but humble man. An inspiration. The passing of a true legend.

    I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.
