Astronaut Neil Armstrong, 1930 - 2012

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon during the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures. He was 82.

The TV reception was flickery, but what a thrill to watch that first step and hear the words - "That is one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind," - July 20, 1969.
