    Damn, this is the first I'm hearing of this. Just checked Wikipedia and it has barely been updated. It's sad though, I've been a huge fan of space and it's contents for my whole life, Neil Armstrong was a hero of mine. RIP.

    @IHOP, I'm worried about telling my dad, Neil Armstrong was his idol.

    Check Google News instead of Wikipedia.

    Bad week for the Armstrongs.

    This is a real bummer. However, it's people like him who will be remembered for hundreds and hundreds of years.

    No, he was an American hero, an icon of what we can do.

    I think that in his memory, SpaceX, who is currently the only American company flying to the ISS, should rename their Dragon capsule the Armstrong Capsule. That, or NASA needs to get the funds to make the Armstrong missions to the moon.

    Too bad NASA isn't going back to the moon anytime soon.

    It's funny because I'm not so sure there are going to be people sad when the scientists, who made it so neil could get to the moon die.
