As many of you have probably seen in the news today, the former Apollo astronaut Neil Armstrong passed away today at the age of 82. He was best known for the Apollo 11 moon landing and his famous quote as he stepped onto the lunar surface for the first time:
That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind
Neil Armstrong July 21st 1969 - from the surface of the moon
R.I.P. Neil. Our thoughts are with your family.

Yes, quite a pioneer. Hopefully now he can go to the moon whenever he likes.

That's what we said when we heard the news. I think he might just take a look in at the Mars rover, too.
