    Default Godspeed,Neil Armstrong

    The first man to walk on the Moon:

    Neil Armstrong has died

    My father was Maintenance Supervisor/Telecommunications for the MSFN & Deep Space Tracking Stations in Madrid,Spain during the Apollo Project,he talked to the Apollo 11 astronauts during the mission.

    I was 13 when it happened,tryin' to stay awake at 4 am to watch it on crappy Spanish TV.

    Godspeed*,Neil Armstrong.
