Good innings though, he lived long enough to see two rovers driving about on two different rocks.

Staying up to wait for him to take those tentative steps onto the moon was unforgettable few hours.

May you rest in peace Neil.

Just heard this on the News ..
Very sad indeed ...as has already been said ..
A great man ..and a good innings.
At least he died having seen what very few earthlings will ever see.
It cannot fail to give one a different perspective on life and death.
Rest easy Neil ...your eagle has finaly landed.

An awe-inspiring giant of a man in every conceivable way. What he and his colleague did was unimaginable. It took the earth inhabitants millions of years to achieve. RIP Neil.

When you think of the bubble headed ephemeral "celebrities" that get rammed down our throats by their fawning media these days this guy was a true hero - and he was just doing his job.

Maybe the world wouldnt be in such a mess if todays youngsters aspired to be more like the astronauts of the 60s & 70s instead of the latest media hyped talentless nobody
