The American astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first Moonwalker who hoisted the Star and Stripes on the surface of the Moon passed away for his heavenly abode at the age of 82-years.

He lived in Cincinnati and had recently undergone a bypass operation and died following complications due to the cardiovascular procedure.

This has been reported in theaustralian.com.au of dated 26th of August 2012.

Neil Armstrong was the commander of Apollo 11 spacecraft which had landed on the moon on 20th of July 1969.

And - his first words after becoming the first person to set foot on the surface have gone down in history – ‘... one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’.

His moonwalk was a major triumph of the USA over Russia, its arch rivals who had claimed supremacy in the Space race by sending the 184-pound satellite Sputnik into Space on 4th of October 1957.

May his soul rest in peace.
