Astronaut Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on moon, dies at age 82 – Cosmic Log
I’m sorry to hear this. For people my age, NASA and the space program were such an important part of our childhood. We’d wake up any hour of the day or night to watch launches and splashdowns.
Astronauts were as famous as pro athletes and rock stars . . .actually, they were more famous than athletes. Being a pro athlete in the 1960s wasn’t what it is today.
It would be nice if I could let this go without mentioning that Armstrong was a graduate of the University of Southern California, but I can’t.
R.I.P. Neil Armstrong
