Neil Armstrong, the 1st man on the moon, has died at age 82

+NBC News reports that Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday, weeks after heart surgery and days after his 82nd birthday.

Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of "one giant leap for mankind." He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin.

One small loss for Neil, one giant loss for man kind!
 
RIP, I was 15 and will never forget that moment.
 
First the Count from Seasme Street, now this. 
"One, one small step for mankind.  Doahahaha.  Two, two thirds of a trifecta, doahahahah (thunder)"
 
RIP sir, I shall always remember you, Back in 69 I along with the the rest of the world then was glued to our sets waiting for him to speak.  What greater words could have been said will never equal his!
 
Yes Earl, he is one of the few who actually did something truly amazing, rather than doing the usual celebrity stuff. RIP
 
This is something worthy of nationwide half-mast.
 
He took about the most historic step in history. 
 
Via con dios el hero de Americanos.

Thank you, Neil, for inspiring generations to reach for the stars. I hope your new journey answers all of your unanswered questions. 
 
Sad to see a National Icon pass, even if it was produced in San Los Angles, he was a builder of patriotic pride!
 
RIP,  if only more people were as honorable and courageous
 
RIP to a great American hero. The world will never forget.
 
One of the bravest men to every explore another world..... thank you for inspiring the dreams of a world.
 
i'm glad he got to see Curiosity's incredible landing on mars, and all that promises.
 
R.I.P the greatest pilot and explorer. He was a true American/World Hero!
 
Rip Neil. One of the great moments in history is slowly disappearing. We need humans in space.
 
That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.
stand in silent tribute 
 
One of the few true heroes and a man who deservedly will be remembered for many many years to come.
 
i'm sorry, but you didn't go to the moon man,

One of a few people that have left their mark on the earth and the moon! RIP Neil Armstrong
 
Totally a bummer. Good man. Rest in peace Sir.
 
A great man who led a great life, we all should do as well, R.I.P

He is awesome.....first moonwalkkk......
 
Sadly a true American Hero has passed on. God Speed Mr. Armstrong, your country is proud of you and you will be missed.
 
Another small step taken. At least this one will not be full of conspiracy theories. R.I.P
 
RIP to a man who inspired a generation and who,s journey will continue to inspire even with the incredible advances the curiosity is making. The amazing voyage he made gave me a million things to dream about and hope to achieve one day.
 
Sailor rest your oar.

We have lost a part of history.
 
Let's honor his memory by putting to rest the conspiracy theory that man did not land on the moon. You are a legend, Neil, and always will be. Thanks for your contributions to humanity. Rest in peace. 
 
I watched the landing live in "69", same week as i got married. Hope they send his ashes to the moon, a fitting resting place. RIP
 
RIP to the one that faked the landing on the moon! :/
 
A modest but courageous hero. I have heard that he risked his own life in trying to find a safe landing spot for the LEM on that historic mission. Houston was seconds from giving the abort command but Neil and Buzz found a place and set down safely. 
 
Thanks for everything Neil! Rest in peace.
 
realy he was 1st man who walk on the moon? there was a challenge ...
 
Prayers are with the Armstrong family through this sadness.
 
God bless and rest in peace what a life he had
Walking on the moon can you imagine it
 
Wow only men who had done honest and great things leave the greatest memories behind.

He may have gone somewhere else now but his footprints will always be here and to the moon.
 
you might have left earth, but u showed us to reach elsewhere.. beauty beyond earth... salutes and respects to the hero.. rest in peace.. your memories and stories will always keep inspiring the generations to come..
 
I see a lot of people calling him an american hero, but really I would say he was a hero to the world as a whole. The first moonwalk was a victory for our entire species.
 
Sorry for the loss of such a great man may his soul rest in unending life. and sorry to americans and the world at large. 
 
May he rest in peace. What a man of courage, a real hero.
 
Rip, sad the only person that knows the truth of if we landed in the moon or not
 
Da world vl remember him forever..@-}--
 
Legend i will never forget his 1rst voyage .world hero
 
And with him may have gone the truth about the way to moon...
 
So sad, such a prominent man in United States history. Rest in Peace Neil, for as long as mankind exists your name will live on.

i remember when i was kid at school. R.I.P.
 
One of the few true gods among men. The only proper way to remember this man is to return to space in force and continue to make giant leaps for man kind.
 
Thank you for being awesome! Say Hi to my Dad! RIP
 
Yes he will always be remembered as the first person to walk on the moon. What a legacy!!!!
 
The moon will not be the same with out you, Neil. I know you're in a better place now, so R.I.P. Neil.

R. I. P. Mr Armstrong. You've inspired millions.
 
RIP Neil Armstrong, one giant man who made a leap for mankind.
 
Man with a remarkable history behind ;"Nëil Armstrong" will always bë remembered . R.I.P
 
MY appologies  Mr. Armstrong is one of this countries greater heros
 
An inspiration to mankind. He furthered our curiosity, our ability, achievements, and drive to discover. 

I remember when I was a child and had first learned that we had been to the moon, walked on the moon, that it didn't seem like such a far and distant place after all. After that, I began to wonder, to dream about further space exploration. I distinctly remember pondering that if we had been to the moon, then the rest of space was now just another generation, just another dreamer away. I salute you sir and for all that you have done to intrigue and open up the minds of young ones around the world.

I watched him do it and it thrilled me. I'm sorry he's gone, and my condolences to his loved ones, but know that he will live on in the hearts and minds of geeks like me.
 
An American hero. God welcome him home
 
:( we will not remember how he died but how he lived . My condolences to his family and loved ones. 
 
may good give him an absolute peech
 
I mentioned this to a friend.  "Is that the guy who races bicycles?"  *SMH*  Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. Armstrong.
 
Great work he did for mankind
 
RIP Neil - Great man, great impact on mankind
 
Many a child of the 60's looked up to him - and we will continue to do so.
 
RIP - but you didn't land on no moon.
 
RIP sad news, what it must have been like stepping on the moon I have always dreamt about
 
He was a very brave and great man and his death is a great blow to NASA and the USA. He was truly one increadible man.
 
My dad was born when he was taking his first steps on the moon... Rip Neil
 
Very sad...An American icon gone....:(
 
A true American, and someone that countless numbers of kids and adults could look up to. He will be missed.
 
R.I.P Neil Armstrong. You were an amazing asset to American History.
 
Now he's on the dark side of the moon
 
May his next journey be full of wonderment. Rest in peace, Neil.
 
Why is everyone saying sad and omg. The man lived a good life and lived to 85. He didn't die of drugs or anything like.
 
First man to walk on a surface not of Earth. He did it. No real words to express that. 
 
A true American hero. A dying breed for sure. (No pun intended.)

So sad RIP
 
Hmmm it's sad R.I.P
 
Check out his later in life documentary appearances. Toward the end he quit caring so much about his confidentiality agreements and started revealing interesting info about the cold war era NASA program.
 
Thanks for everything Neil, you are an inspiration.

Back to the stars from where we came.
 
RWG MR. ARMSTRONG, YOU ARE TRULY AN INSPIRATION FOR SURE.

Not only will we miss you on earth...but beyond our atmosphere as well. Not only were you the first man on the moon, but the ambassador to the stars. R.I.P. You will be dearly missed.
 
RIP you will be remembered always 
 
Can anybody tell why he became Muslim.
 
They should bury him on the moon.
 
R.I.P. to a great American icon/hero
 
A man whose name will be remembered forever. A true first.
 
Never met him,but very sad news.
 
A true inspiration...One Day a Ghanaian will also walk on the moon.
 
GODBLESS HIM IS WAS BIGGER MAN BUT HES COME FIRST I COME TO HIM TO JESUS CRISTO AM SO WHAT CANN I DO TO DO
 
RIP Neil Armstrong... I would like to think you are up in the heavens looking down on us, but you kinda did that already.
 
Oh, how sad... Yet, he lived a life others could only dream of. Rest in peace, Neil. You've earned it...
 
Rest in peace you've made your mark in this world. 
 
Even if humanity disappears and civilization crumbles, Neil's steps on the Moon surface will forever remain as a fitting tribute to this great American Hero.. Godspeed Neil!
 
Not just an American hero but a really great guy and one helluva pilot. We lost a whole lot more than we know.
 
Rest in peace moon man. Now the moon, the planets, and all the stars are in your new living room.....
 
bummer, I had some questions I wanted to ask him, I suppose I could ask Buzz, but he's a bit of a nut job.
 
Rest in paradise, what an ingenious man.
 
Will always be remembered as a hero and will always remembered as a legend..

God bless him,for having the courage to start the movement in this country that has helped people around the world.
 
Thanks for your small step that really was a giant leap for mankind. You made it possible for the people that now live out there in space station
 
RIP Neil Armstrong. Personal legend of mine. Buzz, you lose again! But you're probably happier this time. What is Michael Collins doing these days? The forgotten man of Apollo 11. 
 
RIP Neil, mankind will never forget you.
 
RIP Neil Armstrong, you will be missed

R.I.P. You will never be forgotton.

R.I.P Neil.... they should cremate him and put him in one of those metal canisters and send him back to the moon and put him next to his flag
 
One giant loss for mankind. RIP Neil.
 
A hero and pioneer of flight and aerospacr engineering gone...His footprints left on the moon are a romance of a bygone era when women dressed well and men dressed well and men dressed in suits. There was class and sophistication. Women were ladies and men were gentlemen. Neil Armstrong's footprints on the moon are both historical and symbolical of what they represent to America. He will be forever be remembered ad the FIRST MAN ON THE MOON. Rest in Peace Neil you are Home now.
 
Thanks Neil for taking that major step for all of us. RIP.
 
RIP GOD BLESS U .I WATCHED U ON TV AMAZING. ANN WALKER
 
Rip to a pioneer.... May the stars welcome you home.
 
Damn. Damndamndamn. In too few years there'll be no one left to personally thump morons that claim the landings were fake.

RIP
 
Saddened by this... He was my childhood hero...
 
Wow . . . A true inspiration. May we all pass, leaving such a legacy.

Sad News.
I know he had been unwell recently, but I wonder if he saw or heard about the Mars Curiosity Rover landing?
I hope nobody forgets the man who's story inspired at least a generation of Astronauts, and indeed Engineers and Scientists.
