Neil Armstrong, the first astronaut to step on the moon, has passed away today at the age of 82. His journey to the moon was incredible back in 1969, just a few short years after President Kennedy vowed to put a man on the moon. His infamous quote of the event being “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” has fueled generations of explorers after him to pursue discovery and curiosity with the utmost passion.
