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.
