Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon, died in Cincinnati on August 25, 2012. He was 82 years old. Neil and Buzz Aldrin piloted the Eagle lunar lander to the surface of the Moon in 1969, safely landed it manually, and then spent time on the Moon for the first time in human history. After his fateful steps on the surface of another world, Neil and Buzz returned home. Their feat was duplicated by a handful of other astronauts in the early 1970's before mankind gave up on manned exploration of the Solar system. We need more Neil Armstrongs. He will be sorely missed.
