    Neil Armstrong, 1st man on the moon, dies

    A true American hero is gone, R.I.P.! I could never find many heros that I could say that I "worshipped", not a lot of human "accomplishments" moved me... but he and his crew was right in there with all the other NASA flyers at the very top of my list.

    Very sad that he passed so young. Landing on the moon was one of those significant events that if you're old enough, you remember where you were, who you were with when you watched it live. I was with my 2 brothers and 2 next door neighbor's kids, in their basement, and watched it on their 16 inch B&W TV. It was a bright summer day, and we were all indoors, in a darkened room, excited to watch. What a great day!

    Neil Armstrong will be missed, but we will always remember him.

    Yes very sad to hear, may he R.I.P. To this day my BIL ,does not believe he or any of the others landed on the moon..
    Oh well to all there own.. I was able to watch it that evening on a color TV 21or 23" ..Really didn't matter b&w or color wasn't that much different especially on those first flights .

    I always laugh at that particular "conspiracy theory" of the moon landings. Don't people realize that at that time in the cold war the Soviet Union was monitoring EVERY single electronic voice and data transmission we did in space and on the ground? IF we weren't ON THE MOON, the Russkies would have been the very first ones to blow the whistle and make us lose face.

    I was on vacation on Owasco (Finger Lakes) Lake and watching a 12" b/w TV when it happened. How we all followed the flights from Mercury up to the landings... Every appliance store had TV's in the windows for people passing by to watch. So much we have lost since.

    Neil was a class act. R.I.P.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I was listening to Rush today on the radio ,he told NASA had anouncements ready if the rockets failed to fire for the liftoff getting off the moon. Also said that the rockets had been tested like 500 time on earth but there was no way to know if they would fire on the moon. Plus if they did not fire there was no recovery mission . The 2 men on the moon would have died on the moon so they already knew this and had announcements stating when the last transmission had taken place and it wasn't going to be till the men were on there last leg it would have taken place several days before these men would have died.
    Knowing all this the men still wanted to go to the moon and become heroes.
