He was an astronaut. AMEIRICAN! Not a cosmonot, you commie!

RE: RIP Neil Armsrong
I know you were kidding, but as Kim said, it was a species event not a national event. Man was on the moon. Who cared what his country was?

Besides, those who chose the path of small-mindedness to claim that it was America (and not the world) should have kept in mind the importance of post-war Germany in providing Nasa with their rocket technology.

You could also see it as a victory (against the USSR) in the Cold War.

Again, fuck all of that. This was a human thing.

Humans +1. Cool

Personally I am honouring the fact the one human has begun the journey, with his feet, of something many of us have grown to love- space exploration. As his personal journey is over, I am reflecting on this.

I can't say I am saddened... he lived a life worth living.

Also, it means that we don't have to hear about bloody cycling for a while.

I gotta say - what those guys did - that took some doing. The thing is, once they got up there... no one was really sure they would be able to make it back!!

I'm not really sure that people remember that the entire planet was in front of their television sets for this event. I know people think I'm kidding, but I'm not.

These guys were walking around on the Moon. That just blows my mind. They couldn't have made it there without Neil... he was a hell of a pilot. Thumbsup

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

If you've ever seen my comments in the political section, you'd know I firmly believe that nationalities are generally useless, ineffective, and damaging liabilities to humanity's progress. Drinking Beverage

I completely agree that it was a human victory, and that our full potential is restrained by these useless borders and petty differences.

RE: RIP Neil Armstrong
That piece of news basically ruined my entire day Sad He was one of my childhood heroes. It was quite devastating to me when I first heard of it. RIP Armstrong, and thank you for inspiring a new generation of explorers.
