“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul … we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.”

– Neil Armstrong

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.

The words that come to mind: small, but momentous.
