    No doubt at all that he did more than any of us would manage in a lifetime before the 1970s, then went on to get to the age of 82, which isn't a bad age to get to whoever you are.

    Think I can raise a glass to that.

    A truly inspirational man.

    There can be only one... and Neil was the one, the first human to set foot on the moon.
    There will never be another Neil Armstrong.

    I just remember The Apollo missions from when I was 12. One giant leap to a better place.

    He has one in orbit. And fittingly enough, the full moon due in a few days is a Blue Moon.
