I have a ton of friends that aren't really into science, space, or any of the geeky things that I delve into. But if there's one thing that most people agree on, it's that landing a man on the moon was AWESOME. Even though it was birthed from a nasty xenophobic space race with the Soviet Union, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin. Michael Collins, and the rest of the Apollo 11 team made history in July 1969.
Rest in peace Neil. I hope that we'll see footprints on another planet or moon in my lifetime.
