Neil Armstrong did not just inspire a generation of engineers. He inspired a generation of kids. He was my first hero and I can still hear my mom saying if Neil Armstrong can go to the moon and back, I can do anything.Nothing on here about Neil Armstrong?
He inspired a generation of engineers.
A great man that will be dearly missed.
He stopped signing autographs some years ago, he was very humble, a reluctant hero you could call him.Truly an American hero, of the type that you find it hard to even imagine us replicating today.
But honestly, am I the only whose first reaction to hearing Neil Armstrong was dead was: "Neil Armstrong was still alive?"
The man must have been very covetous of his privacy, because you sure never saw him anywhere in the public eye.
