“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.” (Neil Armstrong, 1930-2012)

When I was a little boy, my first career choice was Astronaut all the way.  The engineering thing came later.  In fact, my earliest recollection of being reprimanded at school was for stealing extra paper so I could draw rockets and space ships.  So, in every sense of the word, Neil Armstrong and his compatriots were my heroes.  Paradise gained a great man this week.  We who are left behind are much better people for what Neil Armstrong and the space heroes contributed to us all.

Plus … You’ve gotta admit.  That is one cool airplane!
