Neil Armstrong

Heard that he has died at the age of 82.

From everything I heard about him, he seemed to have been a good bloke, who achieved great things. Well done.

He was a hero. I had the privalige of seeing the Apollo 11 launch from the press site at the Cape. Then forty years later I heard him speak at the Smithsonian on the aniversary of the launch. He was a wonderful speaker. I could have listened to him for hours.

Finally! We found something with which we're all in agreement in OTDE!

All is well Andy, this is the "Off Topic Forum", not "OTDE".

I had to do a double take myself when I saw everyone agreeing.

Neil Armstrong was an incredible man and a lifelong hero of mine, may his soul rest in peace.
