It seems a shame that students of astrnomy & the National Aeronatics & Space Administration (NASA) have lost another one of their heroes. Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the Ist human being II ever walk on the surface of the Moon has died. He lived past eighty, so he had a full life; but NASA is facing budget cuts what with the mothballing of the space shuttle program. As a result, having a legend from one of their past glory's die only gives them more negatory publicity. Sure their Mars program is great, but it doesn't have the raw emotion the July XXth, MCMLXIX (20th, 1969) lunar landings had. They were called ever so immaculately by Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) Evening News Lead Anchor & Chief Correspondent Walter Cronkite with so much excitement. Walter is gone now II, so it kind of seems fitting that Mr. Armstrong has joined him up in the stars.
