Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, passed away

One of the greatest achievements of mankind was the lunar landing in 1969. Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on a place different than the earth. As he said in his own words: 'one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'. Sadly, Armstrong's family announced he has passed away at the age of 82. Humanity will have to go on without one of its legends.

The moon man
Much can be said about the life and personality of Armstrong, but it is evident that him being the first man to ever set foot on a place outside our home planet has made him an instant legend. Now that he has passed away, his legacy remains. Most importantly, the black-and-white video of the first man on the moon.
