"Houston: Tranquility Base here," Armstrong radioed after the spacecraft settled onto the moon. "The Eagle has landed."
"Roger, Tranquility," the Houston staffer radioed back. "We copy you on the ground. You've got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot.".........

Armstrong died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, a statement Saturday from his family said. It didn't say where he died.

I remember that day, like it was yesterday.

I watched that day in awe.. I remember when I saw the image of relection of the Earth on the helmet visor.. I said outstanding.. There is no one else who can say they saw that. That must be incredible looking all the way back to earth. I wondered if he felt alone in the uninverse for a moment.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
