Neil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on a world outside our planet Earth, passed away today.
Let that sink in a little bit. The first human to ever leave Earth and stand on another body. For all of humanity prior to the late nineteenth century, every person that ever lived, that idea would either never have occurred to them or have seemed so absurd, so far behind the possibility for what we can do, it wouldn’t have warranted a moment’s consideration.
