"It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small." A great Neil Armstrong tribute from Raymond AT
First man on the moon, Neil Armstrong passed away after complications in hart surgery. Armstrong will always be remembered as the first human who walked on another celestial body other than the earth.. if we think about it that is something pretty amazing...

This is arguably one of the most famous lines in American history. These words were first spoken by Neil Armstrong after he took the first steps by any human on the moon in 1969. He along with Buzz Aldrin collected many samples of the moon before their return back to back to the spacecraft. This is the most memorable exploration feat within the past few decades.
"The Eagle has landed." - Neil Armstrong. That statement was not about the craft that carried the astronauts. It was instead a subtle boast about the people that it carried. It was a "shout out" to their nation - a people who are proud, soaring, SUPREME and all-seeing just like the eagle. Interestingly enough, the eagle also preys on smaller, weaker animals. It also eats carrion, i.e. dead and rotting flesh. Meditate on that for awhile.
