NBC news is reporting that Neil Armstrong has died. He recently underwent heart surgery at the age of 82. Haven't found a link yet.

RIP, Neil. Your footprints in the lunar soil, like the memories of your moon landing, will last forever.

A long life ... RIP
One small step for man...
This website made a big deal out of "a" very little. I never heard this before.

Anyone who blasts into space and then follows that up with a walk on the moon is gutsy to me. And I always loved his name. RIP.
The original moonwalker. He will be missed. R.I.P.

An extraordinary person, leader, and real hero.
Another passing that marks the end of an era.
RIP; and thank you.

I'd heard earlier this Summer his health wasn't very good, but was hoping he'd make a turn around. I'll have to pop in my From The Earth To The Moon tapes into the VCR later tonight and watch the episode of the Moon landing in his memory and honour.
Godspeed Sir and Thank You!! :(

One of my few true heroes in life - both on the moon and afterward on earth. I will miss him. I echo the sentiment. Thank you, Neil Armstrong.

I remember watching that on TV when I was a child.
RIP to the true Man on the Moon...

Ironically my dad was watching a bunch of moon-landing stuff yesterday and we had a big discussion about going to the moon and when/if we'd ever go back.
Regardless how many times we go back, only one man was first.

I also remember watching on TV. My mom took her polaroid camera and snapped pictures of the moon landing and Neil taking his first steps on the moon. I still have those pictures and a National Geograpic magazine that contained a clear pink, plastic record of the landing on the moon.
My husband and Neil Armstrong came from the same small town in Ohio.
RIP Mr. Armstrong. :(
