Farewell Neil Armstrong...

Farewell Neil Armstrong


I remember watching that as a kid. It is sad there is a political commercial slapped on it today but it's 2012. Everything has a commercial on it.  

Neil Armstrong,  the first man to walk on the moon died over the weekend in Ohio.

Neil Armstrong was born in Ohio, Wapakaneta, Ohio.

Neil Armstrong died in Cincinnati if you believe

"23 hours ago – Neil Armstrong, the American astronaut who made "one giant leap for ... Armstrong died Saturday in Cincinnati, Ohio, according to a NASA ..."  

Or Neil Armstrong died in Columbus if Google is correct:

"Died: August 25, 2012, Columbus

Born: August 5, 1930, Wapakoneta"


It made me curious where Wapakeneta is... I knew it was nearby...

I'm feeling a road trip to Wapakeneta coming on.

Maureen - I have not been in hte US when the first moon walk took place, we knew from the news in Russia. And it was a huge leap.

RIP, Neil Armstrong

Thanks.  John a very private man, too.  He taught in Cincinnati, there is a museum in Cincinnati which he gave a moon rock.  I know when I read that a Cinci museum got a moon rock from Neal Armstrong I was jealous for Columbus, our museums.  There is free admission to that museum in Cinci through Labor Day in honor of Neil Armstrong.  Jon I read something about a museum in the USSR or Russia (?) that sold souvenirs for Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong, for their respective achievements, leaving the earth and stepping out on the moon.  Alan We were driving home from a family reunion and just barely got to the TV in time to see it.
