Was this what it was like when people heard of the death of Christopher Columbus? Armstrong’s name will be up there with Columbus… remembered as an explorer. No longer a living legend.
For young people wondering what a hero is, it would be more like Armstrong. It is why I dislike turning game developers into ‘gods’ or ‘legends’ when they don’t compare to doing something like strap themselves into a rocket and risk their lives.
It has been forty years since Man has walked on the Moon. I’m not sure how many people are left alive who have walked on the moon. It has to be half a dozen or less. Very soon, there will be none.
