Two-thirds of my biggest childhood heroes... (outside of my family, of course).
 
so good to see the both of them having a laugh..."remember the time when...." (i would love to be a fly on the wall).
 
+John Howard, Amen to that. Godspeed Lt.
 
tough year for the Astronaut Corps... first Sally Ride, then Neil Armstrong
 
PIONEERS BEYOND THE PILGRIMS
 
Its quite regretable nowadays only very old men walked on the moon back in the old days. (when everythings was better etc. etc.)
 
Just imagine their conversation "Can you believe it? After all these years, people still think we went to the moon! Good thing no one ever found that Moon set on the film studio we took all those shots from...."

=-) j/k
 
"back in our day...we had to WALK to the moon, in a foot of snow, uphill, both ways..."
 
I love that you say "celebrating the life of" rather than "mourning the death of". 

That's how it should be. Well done, +NASA 
 
So Moon is still virgin of men touch , i have the feeling that Chinese will land first on Moon ....
 
i really, really dislike foreigners +Ilia Konovalov +Andreas Zimmermann who chide about the moon landings.  until canadians produce more than a space arm and bulgarians make more than bottle rockets they should keep their comments to the conspiracy forums.  this is a day to remember a great AMERICAN.  perhaps we can just focus on that.
 
This is a day to remember a great HUMAN.  And when Canadians, Bulgarians, Russians, Chinese, or any other humans make advances like the International Space Station, MIR, moon landings, etc, we should salute them as well.  Progress of the species is not a matter of nationalism.
 
+Glenn Costello yes he did. i guess i just found the humor ill-timed. to me the poster's intent was showcasing that it's a day to celebrate and remember, not to jest. so i wasn't exactly all chuckles. so apologies for being so abrupt.
 
+John Howard  Apologies if you didn't see my j/k comment. Personally, I want people at my funeral to be laughing and celebrating, and I certainly didn't mean any disrespect, just giving a short giggle here and there. (I am a strong believer in Charlie Chaplin's advice that "...every day that goes by without laughter is a waste of a day...".)

In truth I am amazed at their accomplishments, and proud of what +NASA  has done recently with Curiosity on Mars, too. Kudos.
 
+Andreas Zimmermann indeed I would like the same at my funeral. With all this said they might have been chuckling at exactly your comment :)
 
John , you are all foreigners in America lol , killed all the native indians , took their lands :)
 
you cant flag me cause i didn't say anything bad :)
 
+Ilia Konovalov does this to +SPACE.com 's posts all the time too, even ones that have nothing to do with the moon or the astronauts who went there. He's a moon troofer serial troll.
 
Ók , i will stop , but at least you know the truth now , good night  all :)
 
An amazing photo of two ordinarily amazing men
 
Oh look!  A mute option.  Google, you think of everything.
 
As one of the "1st people" Llia we "Native Americans respect heros, these men are hero's. You unfortunately are just another stupid troll who used this to flame a page. And thus are blocked and forgotten as you should be.
 
APPARENTLY THE 'SLAV HAS LITTLE RESPECT 4 ANY THING OTHER THAN HIS 'BELLY
 
  AGAIN; 'SALUTE' TO AT LEAST TWO OF 'OUR' PIONEERS.!
 
All three (Armstrong, Aldrin, Collins) great men - check out "In the Shadow of the Moon" if you haven't already.
