|Neil Armstrong aboard the Eagle Lander on the surface of the Moon July 12, 1969|
On Saturday Neil Armstrong died of complications from a heart procedure at the age of 82. It was just a month ago that we marked the 43rd anniversary of Neil Armstrong's historic landing on the moon. In that anniversary post I highlighted Armstrong's concern with the Obama Administration's decision to cancel the follow on program to the Space Shuttle which currently finds us paying the Russians to take our astronauts to the International Space Station.
Let's honor Armstrong's heroism by restoring the American made space lift necessary to get our astronauts into orbit without foreign assistance. That means jobs for Americans and no further degradation in our aerospace industry. Do it for Neil!
