Neil Armstrong passed away today at the age of 82. His family released a statement saying he died of "complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures."

Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969 with the now famous words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." A self-described "nerdy engineer," Armstrong was never at ease with his fame, avoiding the media and keeping mostly to himself. He was a truly inspiring person, and we're all sad to see him go. Thanks for everything, Neil Armstrong.
