R.I.P. Neil Armstrong — aerospace engineer, U.S. Navy pilot, test pilot, American astronaut, the first person to walk on the Moon, and university professor.

And thank you, Sir Neil Armstrong, as you were one of my sources of inspiration when I was a kid — on space and science — and what humans can accomplish; reach the stars! You and your crew, and the rest of the Apollo program, inspired many and it is safe to say that it led to my interest and love for space, the USA space program, and technology in general.

Thank you,
