Neil Armstrong, truly a planetary hero for our time, passed away on August 25, 2012, at age 82.
We honor the life and the lasting legacy of the first human who set foot on the moon, on July 20, 1969, during the Apollo 11 mission.
He will receive his reward in the heavenly spheres, without a doubt.
Godspeed, Neil. Our prayers are with you as you adjust to new missions beyond our realm.
