Neil Armstrong, Made "Giant Leap" As First Man Who Set Foot On The Moon, R. I. P.

Neil Armstrong, who, as the first man who set foot on the Moon on July 20, 1969, made that one "Giant Leap for Mankind," passed away on Saturday of complications from heart surgery at an undisclosed location at the age of 82.

Mr. Armstrong and Colonel Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin set foot on the moon after climbing off the Eagle Lunar Excurision Module during the Apollo 11 mission.

Michael Collins piloted the Columbia Command Module, which orbited the moon.

Shown below is a photograph that Colonel Adrin took of Mr. Armstrong shortly after they set foot on the Lunar surface.
