Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, dies

(CNN) -- Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, has died, his family said Saturday. He was 82.

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures," Armstrong's family said in a statement.

Armstrong underwent heart surgery this month.

"While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves," his family said.

A genuine hero - he'll be missed but not forgotten.

Bumping this thread.

One way you can get a "reverse accolade" is that the trolls over on Slashdot quieted down at least 50%.

I guess this was the only way Neil could travel further than he had gone before. His was a life well lived.
