Vale Neil Armstrong – 1930-2012

On August 5, 2012, Neil Armstrong turned 82 while the Mars Science Laboratory (Curiosity) made her touch down on the Martian surface. Two days later, Armstrong had heart surgery to bypass four blockages in his coronary arteries and initially showed to be recovering well afterwards. It caught many of us off-guard to find out today that Armstrong has succumbed to complications from this surgery and is no longer with us.The Legacy of Neil Armstrong, KnowTheCosmos, CosmoQuest Blog
