ASTRONAUT ARMSTRONG IS DEAD AT 82

       Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012)

CINCINNATI (AP) – Neil Armstrong was a quiet, self-described "nerdy"
engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved U.S. pilot
he made "one giant leap for mankind" with the first step on the moon.

The modest man who entranced and awed people on Earth has died.

Armstrong died Saturday following complications resulting from
cardiovascular procedures, a statement from his family said. It didn’t
say where he died.

Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the
moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s
scientific expeditions. His first words after setting foot on the surface
are etched in history books and in the memories of those who heard
them in a live broadcast.
