    Astronaut Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on moon, dies at age 82 (NBC News)
    Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday, weeks after heart surgery and days after his 82nd birthday.

    Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of "one giant leap for mankind." He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin.

    The twelve men - space apostles, really - who have walked on the moon's surface:

    1. Neil Armstrong
    2. Buzz Aldrin
    3. Pete Conrad
    4. Alan Bean
    5. Alan Shepard
    6. Edgar Mitchell
    7. David Scott
    8. James Irwin
    9. John W. Young
    10. Charles Duke
    11. Eugene Cernan
    12. Harrison Schmitt

    Eight survive. Neil Armstrong was pre-deceased by Conrad, Shepard, and Irwin.

    RIP Neil.

    If you have the chance, the Neil Armstrong Museum in Wapakoneta, OH is worth a visit.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    All of these men are true heros. God speed, Mr. Armstrong, you are envied by me and many for having walked on the moon.
