Neil Armstrong died today at age 82.
We forget sometimes that the whole success of the first moon landing depended on Armstrong's skilled and courageous piloting. The landing could have ended in disaster. Armstrong landed the craft successfully with only seconds worth of fuel left.
Thanks for one of the best and most exciting moments in my life and in the lives of millions of others. Thanks for being so brave and for pushing out so far the limits of what is possible. Thanks for Everything. Rest in Peace.
