    God speed, Mr. Armstrong.



    RELEASE: 47-12

    KENNEDY SPACE CENTER DIRECTOR STATEMENT ON NEIL ARMSTRONG'S DEATH


    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The following is a statement from NASA Kennedy
    Space Center Director Robert Cabana regarding the death of former
    test pilot and NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong. He was 82.


    "Neil Armstrong was a true American hero, and one of the nicest
    gentlemen around. He was the epitome of what an engineering test
    pilot should be, and a role model for everyone who aspired to be an
    astronaut.


    "He always took the time to share his thoughts on technical issues and
    his experiences from the past.


    "I feel very privileged to have known him. He will be missed."


    Additional information about Armstrong is available on the Web at:

    Coincidently, I was modeling a suit for working on the moon when I heard the news on the TV of his death. When it comes to lives, Armstrong definitely won the lottery, did mankind well, inspired billions of people and will always be in the history books. He is immortal.

    Buzz Aldrin is still going strong. I met him at the ISDC this spring. He is very involved and vocal in efforts to land people on Mars.

    I took a picture of the TV with my Polaroid camera. I'm pretty sure it's still in the photo album at my mom's house and last time I saw it, you could still tell what it was.

    Of all the clubs I've ever wanted to join, the "guys who set foot on another celestial body" is probably the most exclusive.

    Me too. I remember watching as much of that mission as I could.
