Neil Armstrong has passed away, at 82 years of age.
He was the first person to walk on the Moon. No one has set foot on the Moon since I was born. It’s possible the last human to ever walk on the Moon has already done so, and that’s terribly sad.
He once was asked how he felt knowing his footprints would likely stay on the moon’s surface for thousands of years. “I kind of hope that somebody goes up there one of these days and cleans them up,” he said.
I agree with Armstrong, since that would be preferable to the alternative that they are never seen again, in-person.
