RIP Neil Armstrong. Armstrong was the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. He uttered the now historic words: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind", as half a billion people - a sixth of the population of the world - watched in amazement as he stepped off the Eagle's ladder and planted his left foot on another world.
He learned to fly as a boy, and pursued his dreams of flight all the way to the moon. Humble and courageous. Godspeed Neil Armstrong. You will always be my hero.
