Nobody else will ever be the first person to stand on another celestial body. No matter how far we go, or don't go, he will always have been the first. The words pioneer and hero simply don't do the man justice. He will be a singular figure for the remainder of human existence. He was more than a great man, more than an icon. He was, and always will be our first traveler into a wider universe.

Geez man and it seems like it was just yesterday I watched that movie. The first ever man on the moon is now gone. Sad.
