The first human being to set foot on a foreign celesial body, making a giant leap for mankind, has died. Dr. Neil Armstrong was a patriot and a pioneer. In 1969 he, along with Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and their pilot Michael Collins, fulfilled Kennedy's promise of putting a man on the moon before the close of the 1960's. Sadly, President Kennedy was not alive to see the fulfillment of this promise. Everyone else in the entire world, however, watched in profound awe as Dr. Armstrong stepped the Apollo 11's LEM, The Eagle, and uttered the now famous words, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."


REALSPACE: Neil Armstrong is not a fan of President Obama

Neil Armstrong is, as anyone educated outside of the United States knows, the first man on the moon. For some bizarre reason, most Americans appear to have conflated an old OJ Simpson movie with actual fact, and believe that Neil never actually left a Hollywood Basement, but, hey, there's 50 years of crappy educational policy for you. Fortunately, people in other countries tend to remember important stuff for us these days, since we can't be bothered.
