Neil Armstrong Passes

For everyone who was alive and aware when Neil Armstrong did the most amazing thing anyone had ever done, which was the envy of the entire world, well, the news of his passing is a bit hard to take. He was by all accounts a decent man and universally admired. It's tempting to say that he was lucky but of course not: he worked hard to become a pilot and then an astronaut. Walking on the moon was the culmination of all of that.

The shame of it is that after all that, we basically just went to say we could do it. There's so much more possible.

A proper memorial for Armstrong, and everyone who helped get him to the moon, would be to go back and this time to stay and build. Camp Armstrong, anyone?
