RIP Neil . He just turned 82 near the beginning of this month. Hopefully NASA will do something in memory of him and the moon landing.

The greatest icon in space exploration, and one of the men who inspired me to enjoy science and science fiction. I remember the day he made his "That's one small step" speech, I was with my family on vacation in Montana. I thought, "Jules Verne is spinning in his grave right now." Armstrong lived long enough to see our nation's dreams of space die.


And now he's gone too.

CINCINNATI—Carol Held Knight told reporters on Wednesday that, though she was still mourning her husband Neil Armstrong’s death, it was frankly a relief to finally be able to clear out all the “space hobby crap” her late husband kept lying around the house. “I loved my husband very much, but, honestly, what am I supposed to do with a pile of useless rocks, a moon man figurine of some kind, and a stack of journals he wrote about space in?” said Knight, who recalled that Armstrong once “practically threw a fit” when she tried to get rid of his little plastic space shuttles. “I’m just going put it in a box and leave it on the curb. Some kids from the neighborhood might want it, you never know.” Knight confirmed she planned on giving the spacesuit Armstrong wore on the moon to a thrift store, noting that “it doesn’t fit [her].”

RIP

Ha! Nice Onion report. His spacesuit is at the Smithsonian (they never let the astronauts keep them...government property and all that). Boy, if only that were true about boxing up Armstrong's stuff and putting it on the curb.

So she's going to keep your rocks and space suit after all? Does it fit her?
