NEIL ARMSTRONG

"Geologists have a saying: 'rocks remember'".

1930 ~ 2012

For his final task on the Moon, Neil left a small package filled with items memorializing previously deceased pioneers in space exploration, including Soviet cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Vladimir Komarov, and Apollo 1 astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee.

Now it's Neil's turn, and our turn to memorialize him.

His family released the following statement:

"For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

~ It's six years later, Neil. I still look at the moon and wink.
