I remember that day he walked on the moon and how in awe I was of him. A true pioneer in the space industry; RIP Mr. Armstrong.

Nerdy was never sexier.

RIP Mr. Armstrong. Your true impact on the world still hasn't been felt.

Sad news indeed. He leaves an incredible legacy of exploration and achievement done with modesty. R.I.P.

I am proud to say that I met him. I was in awe.

cool, calm, and consummately competent, there was no swagger in Armstrong; no posturing bravado, no self aggrandizing vanity.

In test piloting an Earth powered prototype of the lunar lander he managed to compensate for a bad control and bring it down, and did the same in a spinning out of control Gemini 8. That is largely why he got tapped for the moon landing... how cogently he corrected in even the most fearful crisis.

He lived a life not unlike a founding father.
Serving admirably. Accomplishing nobly to lasting merit. And retiring gracefully to the quiet ordinary life of an extraordinary citizen.

His humility, professionalism, and intelligence only matched by his courage.

The best I can say of him is the best I can say of any man.

I wish I were made more like him.

The word 'legendary' is thrown around so easily these days but Neil Armstrong truly was.
