Neil Armstrong passed away on Saturday 25th August.
Obama called him a "True American Hero" but I think he was wrong. Neil Armstrong was a global hero to billions a name that really crossed borders without exception.
It's also an absolute credit to the man that unlike so many today he rejected the fame and fortune that was open to him and went back to university to study and then to teach.
Right till the end he was pushing the politicians to keep pushing the envelope of space to keep going higher, and faster.
He was also apparently an uber geek happier to talk engineering theory than the moon landing.
Armstrong's family statement paid the tribute "For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."
I think that's very humble and humbling.
