Neil Armstrong 1930-2012

It is reported that the first man on the Moon has died.


I’ve had a long interest in space travel and the Moon landings are a pivotal moment in that, as well as all human history. Armstrong wasn’t just a ‘lucky guy’ – his actions during a difficult landing saved Eagle from crashing and his decision to avoid the spotlight afterwards speaks volumes to the man’s character.


When we get a permanent facility on the Moon, it should be named after this man.


Rest in Peace, Mr Armstrong.
