Neil certainly earned himself a place in history unlike that of anyone else. One day a new batch of astronauts (from whatever country they are going to be) will walk on the moon, but that will not mitigate the achievement of the Apollo astronauts and the many, many who worked with them.

Actually, what he did is bigger than just the moon.  He opened up possibilities, he proved that we, humans, can breach the atmosphere and stay IN space.  The MIR space station would not have been possible without the Apollo crew.  Opportunity and Curiosity would not be possible, without his and his crews contribution.

And for that I salute him and his life.

RIP to a legend, and an inspiration. One of the ones who enabled a whole generation to dream, and enabled the dreams of a whole generation. To understand the importance of Neil Armstrong I like to listen to Neil deGrasse Tyson's words on NASA, the Apollo program and the Moon landings.

Here's to a man whose life did
 Shine as bright as stars can burn,
May his memory guide and inspire
 Us all until to the stars we return.

RIP, sir.

I watched it live.  I still remember it.

In 500 years, no one will remember who Barack Obama or Lady Gaga was.  But everyone will be taught that on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong was the first human to set foot on the moon.
