    Remember his first words on the moon? "FOR ALL MANKIND"!!

    Space exploration,on the whole, is for the advancement for the human race as a whole.

    Well imo it is kind of disappointing. I would have preferred a grave site memorial where people could go to pay their respects, or Nasa could have scattered his ashes up in space. A hero of all mankind. RIP & God bless.

    Should not expect anything else. What should we expect from petty jealousy?

    I wonder why he opted to be buried in sea after he died :what:

    In any case, Neil Armstrong was an inspiration to a generation of Americans and more, may he rest in peace *salutes*

    He was shy, and disliked the attention. It the same reason we never saw him on the media much.

    So perhaps thats the reason. Same with Einstien, who preferred to be cremated rather than buried.

    They should shoot his coffin up into space. That would be more appropriate.
