Neil Armstrong in the Lunar Module after having completed the first moonwalk. The picture was taken by Buzz Aldrin.

I just love that combined look of satisfaction, happiness, and excitement.

→ Neil Armstrong, First Man on Moon, Dies at 82

Neil Armstrong was a quiet self-described nerdy engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step on to the moon. The modest man who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter million miles away has died. He was 82.

Thank you Neil for inspiring me to look up at the Moon and to dream about the cosmos.
