Neil Armstrong is one of the most iconic Americans ever. He was the first human being to set foot on the moon. Some people deny this but to each his own. What bothers me is that we first landed on the moon 43 years ago and haven't been back since 1972. With our current levels of technology, we should be going there once a week to our moonbase. Budget cuts and politics have formed major obstacles for scientific achievement. We need to change this. Get involved, tell your politicians that space exploration is worth our money, please.

Rest in peace, Mr. Armstrong. The world needs more people like you.
