Sounds like +Ilia Konovalov needs to say it to Aldrin's face to get what's coming to him.
 
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 
 
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.
 
+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.
 
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.
