Neil Armstrong was a powerful voice for pushing back the frontiers of flight. His death on Saturday, August 25, 2012, is a sad occasion for all of us. There have been many tributes to him over the course of the last couple of days so I thought it appropriate to capture a few of them in this blog post, including my own remembrance.
