Well, that's just too bad. Coincedence, my history teacher was just talking about him on Friday (his cellphone ringtone is Neil's transmission to Houston that the Ealge had landed), and how he easily made the jump from the lunar module's steps to the moon, and then how Buzz joked that "that might have been one small step for Neil, but it was a huge one for me" or something because Neil was short.

Anyway, we should have like a memorial addon of the Eagle lunar module or something. I would do it, but I still haven't firgured out those Blender python scripts... :D

A real shame.

Wherever we choose to go in the future - we will always be in his footsteps. Whoever we are in the future - we will always remember Neil Armstrong.

We will miss him. I still get shivers when I hear his landing.
