Skooter reporting 08/26/12

“That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind,” Neil Armstrong first words after setting foot on the moon’s surface.

Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon and commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, his family confirmed Saturday. He was 82. It was not clear where he died.

He and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs.

Armstrong was born Aug. 5, 1930, on a farm near Wapakoneta in western Ohio. He married Carol Knight in 1999, had two adult sons from a previous marriage.
