That’s one small step for man, but one giant leap for mankind. Famous words said by Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon (and one of only 12 to have walked on her), who died yesterday from complications of heart surgery. He was 82 and on July 20th 1969 he conquered the Moon. Forget your iPhone, ultrabooks or electric cars, that was real scientific progress, the likes of which we have not seen again in the last 40 years. Time to step it up mankind and continue his legacy.
