To Honor Neil Armstrong and Reflect on the Final Frontier

The death of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, came as a sad shock to Americans and citizens of the world. Armstrong died from heart complications in his home in Cincinnati, Ohio at the age of 82.

Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon were an iconic moment during the Cold War and Space Race of the mid-20th century. Ever since, space has been held in the collective world conscious as representing the epitome of human technological achievement and progress.

Companies are now considering how they would make space travel available for regular citizens. Soon, instead of wanting to go sky diving for a rush, regular citizens will be saving money to engage in a Virgin Space voyage to orbit Earth.

Now more than ever, Armstrong's words ring true, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
