Neil Armstrong: True Hero [1930 – 2012]

Earth got a little less interesting yesterday when Niel Armstrong passed away at the age of 82.  In an age when people are famous from drunken exploits and reality TV shows, Neil was truly an inspiration.  In the 60’s and 70’s he was a reality star in a different way.  Except what he was doing mattered.  Oh what a time to be alive.  He was the face of space exploration for over 40 years.  In a year where we already lost Ray Bradbury, this is another black mark.  If we lose Chuck Yaeger in 2012, I may cry.
