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.
